We are growing up and becoming adults. It is more and more apparent to me every day. Some things are simple: I do my own laundry, cook my own meals, clean my own house. But some things are more subtle. For instance, three of my housemates have recently had wonderful presentations of their abilities, which I have been privileged enough to attend.

The first week of the new semester has just ended, and as usual, I feel slightly overwhelmed by the amount of work required of me in the next 3 months or so, but also energized by the new class subjects and a fresh schedule. This semester promises to afford me a bit more time at home and/or with friends. Last semester I was taking 17 credits and working 25 hours/week, which left me very little time to do anything but work, attend class, do homework, and make three meals a day to take with me to school. Now I will able to be home for supper three nights during the school week, and I’ve stripped my workweek down to 14 credits and 15 hours of work.
I’m also taking some lower key classes. I only have one 300 level class, one 200 level, and three 100 levels. I have friends in most of my classes - my sister even in one class! Basically, I’m excited and ready to take on a new challenge and to embrace my final semester at Calvin.
