Who do you think you are? This is probably the most cliche question I have ever come across; however, it is one that I enjoy writing about. I think everyone is unique and in that sense, so am I. To best summarize who I am in character is to relate myself to a child, I want the best in life with the least amount of work. I would like to nonchalantly walk throughout the streets of New York without a care in my mind and try and pleasure myself with the most trivial of things; except I attend college. College. The best and worst of our post-teen experiences compacted in a mere four years, it not only gives us valuable experiences but challenges us to extremes we have never encountered before.
There are a plethora of concerns that I have, even in my first month of college, most of which are social or academic. I believe that everyone’s first concern in college is to meet people that they can relate to; friends. Since Baruch is mostly a commuter school, I rely on the friends back at hometown in New Jersey. Of course having friends in Baruch isn’t bad but on a Saturday night I’m not going to be driving two hours into New York for a night out with my friends. Out of all the concerns I have, making friends are the least of my worries, I believe I have good social and communication skills. Academics and procrastination seem to go hand in hand when it comes to me. Laziness is a bane of which I must rid of; however, I can’t. I guess it’s just how I am, I was more of a fun person than a studying person ever since I was born. Of course, ever since I’ve started my journey called college I have yet to procrastinate; procrastination is a concern that I do worry about but there are things that are more important. The greatest and the most important concern I have pertaining to college is fun. Such a simple facet of life fun is but most certainly the trickiest to obtain. With all the dense coursework and exams coming soon there will be little room for fun; however, I am determined to make room in my career in college for some entertainment on the side.
High school was such a pivotal moment in my life and has been the greatest years of my life. They say your high school years are the years you cherish the most, I come to agree with that statement as I do long for my high school experiences and friends again. It’s too early to say that Baruch won’t offer the same ambiance as my high school but just in case there’s always the option of transferring out. I believe once I delve more into the adventures of college I’ll be more pleased with college life. The first of anything is the most fundamental and changing experience one can encounter. I’ll experience things that I have never thought of and experience different aspects about me during my first year of college; I see my freshman year as a year of discovery of self.
