This weekend was little sibs weekend. Unfortunately, (or maybe fortunately?) I do not have any little siblings. Apparently, however, the rest of everyone does. Or so it seems.
There are people everywhere. Little kids, big kids, parents, students- I donÂt even know. And IÂm sure theyÂre all having a really good time here- in fact, IÂm glad that they are here to experience Dayton. Being on the other side, however, is a bit different. I honestly just wanted to get my French toast this morning, but encountered the backs of tons of people standing in the middle of the cafeteria, some talking, some texting, some just looking. After many Âexcuse meÂs,Â I made it safely to the cash register.
In general, I donÂt do well in very large groups of people. This is what IÂve found hardest about college. YouÂre essentially in a large group of people all the time. And then when you add everyoneÂs families, itÂs like a sea of voices and movement and personality, and for me itÂs a little bit too much. At least when IÂm still trying to wake up.
IÂm not saying little sibs weekend is bad, or that college is bad or anything. ItÂs just one of those days where I need to have some alone time. Alone time is always good, but itÂs hard to find most days, which IÂve found to be the biggest challenge about college. IÂve retreated away from the waves of people to the shore of my dorm room, and figured IÂd blog about it all- and IÂm actually feeling a bit better.
