You know what’s weird? That after spending some of the best years of my life at Wake Forest University, I find myself not feeling particularly homesick for what used to be my “home away from home.” Of course I miss my friends, the beauty of the campus, and the easiness of college life, but as scared as I was to graduate it was something that I needed in my life. In my four years at Wake, I grew more as a person than I thought was possible and my college experience truly shaped me and prepared me for the real world. And for that, I will be forever grateful to my alma mater. But after four years I was ready to spread my wings even further and test out what life as an adult would hold for me–which I’ve found totally sucks at times but most days are wonderful and full of new adventures.
This weekend, however, is something that I have been looking forward to a few weeks–Homecoming! It’s definitely going to be strange to be back on campus. There’s a whole new class of freshman that I’ll probably never know, my sorority took in a new pledge class that I haven’t had to friend request on Facebook as I’ve done for the past 3 years, and there are new buildings popping up on campus just in the past 4 months. Can you imagine how different the campus will be in 10 years??!
I’m taking a half day off from work today and will (excitedly) be boarding the earliest flight that I can to North Carolina. Tonight is the bi-annual President’s Ball, which I just bought a beautiful new dress for, and then the football game against the Hoosiers on Saturday. I’m beyond excited to have my best friends, my loving boyfriend, and the Demon Deacons all around me this weekend!!
Have a happy weekend y’all!
