September Update
 
Hey everyone! It's my first month at college and I love it so much. My first journal entry after the wildness of orientation takes up a whole page and  says just this: "I get to have a life??"

It's been amazing so far. Emotional highs and lows abound, new friendships, amazing professors, shitty professors, a horrifying lack of AC, a rush of confusion and happiness and sadness. So far, I've loved it. But I know that no matter what, even if it ever gets awful, it's always going to be better than what I came from. Because it is mine, and I fought for it, and I held on with everything I had, and I got here. I got here! 

I'm currently undecided, but I think I want to major in Theology... which has taken me by surprise! I signed up for a theology class because it's a requirement, and I was like "oh, I'll just get it out of the way." And then my  professor turned out to be incredible and I fell in love with it. For me, theology means deep introspective work in community, and also studying the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves. I love it so far, and I'm excited to see where it takes me. 

So! That's where I'm at this month. Thank you all for being here and continuing on this wild creative ride with me!
