“So here I am”
- An Oregonian living abroad
- A small town girl transferred to a big city
- 1/200 to move from Cascade High School to Chapman University
As one of two hundred in my senior class I moved away from safe, secure, easy Cascade High school into the unknown abyss of Chapman University. As I look at the syllabus I expect to be challenged and welcome that challenge. I hope to be pushed to the limit of what I think I can do and into the arena of what I am capable of. I believe the class load is steady and will keep me on my toes.
I expect to participate as much as possible, from the first day of class I am already feeling welcomed and inspired by both my peers and my professor. I will earn my grade by completing work on time and to the best of my ability.
I am curious to find who I am. I also dread to find out who I am because as of today I don’t know. Finding yourself is no easy task and though I am excited I am also nervous of the work it entails.
In 15 weeks I hope to see myself with pride in my work, with a sense of accomplishment and strength. I want to feel better and more secure in my writing. I want to have received feedback from peers that shows my improvements as a writer and as a person. I hope to “find myself” both in my writing and in who I want to be in the world. I hope to be one step closer to finding my passion and knowing what I want to do with my life.
