The picture you see above is me on my very first day of college in Sycamore Residence Hall. I was nervous, anxious, excited, and definitely a little nauseous about being away from home. I am lucky enough to have a tight-knit group of friends from my hometown and I was nervous how the distance between us would change our friendship. We had been inseparable since the sixth grade and had never spent more than a few days apart! With most of us attending college in New England, we knew that we would see each other for most school breaks and long weekends, but that seemed so far away at the time!
