Ending the First Year

Tonight will be the last night that I sleep in my Corbett dorm room. Tomorrow, I will be packing all of my stuff into a friend’s van and moving into a house about a mile south of campus.

As usual, it’s a bittersweet time. I’ve come home to these people every day for the last nine months, so in a way, they’re like family. Sure, I didn’t hang out with each one of the 50 people on my floor every single day, but I made some very important and lasting bonds here this year.

Today, some of us went up to Horsetooth lake and had a barbeque for a last get-together before heading off in our different directions. I’m really happy I went. I got some pictures to remember some of these great people by:

I was really lucky to have such great people on my floor, and to have an RA that actually wanted to make the year enjoyable. I can’t really put into words how blessed I was to be in such a great environment.

So I guess this ends my first year at CSU. I’m going to hit the “Publish” button on this blog post, and pack my stuff to get ready for the Next Chapter.
