Aggieland!

Finally! I have officially been registered for classes at the esteamed Texas A&M University. After cheering them on from the homestead for ten years, I'm finally going to sit in the student section next to my fellow Aggies. On Monday, The Parents took Mon, Tue, and Wed off to take the four hour drive there to drop me off and meet up with fellow bloggers.
Let me tell you, it was the happiest three days of my life. I was a college student for three days, and I couldn't get enough. Staying in the dorm, going to orientations, aimlessly walking around campus, and of course, the early morning Starbucks runs. I have never been this excited. On the other hand, this will be my first real time away from home...
I absolultely love my family. My sisters are sisters, and my parents are parents, but most of the time everyone is pretty decent to each other. This will be the first time ever that I pack my belongings and drive away. It's a very bittersweet experience. But I know with most certainty I was raised to be ready for this.
So one thing I would love to brag about, about A&M, is everyone is very friendly. I've made tons of new friends, most with my major. With a campus of 45,000 kids, it's almost impossible to not find someone with something in common with yourself. Which I LOVE.
These past three days have been amazing, but I am happy to sleep in my own bed tonight. I go back down there on the eighteenth for good, and I know there won't be much sleeping until then. If y'all are anywhere near College Station message me and I'll give you the grand tour! I've gotten so lost these past three days I can tell you where anything is!
Off to the long awaited darkness! God Bless! :)

  1. I'm glad you had such a good time. As wonderful as the past three days seems to you now, the next four years are going to be even more amazing.

    We sure enjoyed getting to meet your folks for dinner Tuesday and look forward to meeting you too on one of their future trips down this way. We told them on Tuesday and I'm telling you now, if you need anything ...if you have any problems big or small or if you just need a place to go for a few hours, a few days or until your folks can drive down, you give me a call. They have all my numbers and email, so don't hesitate if you need anything. Our place is 30 miles west of campus but I work just a few miles north of campus in Bryan. We'd be glad to help you any way we can.
