A lot of students in high school dream of going away for college. I was definitely one of those students who couldn’t wait to leave from home and get far away from there. I was definitely ready to start my new life in a big city because that’s where I thought I belonged.
However, I have come to realize, after 3 years almost 4 in a major city, this is not the place I really want to be. I truly miss being home, when I visit I feel so at peace. Big cities have too much going on, which at the time I thought was what I wanted because I was in such a small town. My experience has taught me though that this is not the life I want for myself, which is okay.

A lot of people that I graduated with went home after their freshman year because it was expensive or they didn’t like it and I felt scared because I didn’t want to fail. I wanted to prove that I could make it in the path I had chosen for myself. But it is totally okay to change your plans and adjust. I have realized that just because things don’t turn out the way you planned and you have to accommodate, does not mean that you cannot and will not succeed.
