I’m not gonna lie, people change; I’ve changed. Going away does change people, especially college.
Oh college, you’re not how I imagined you, and I’m not what I imagined I’d be when I got there.
I don’t know what I thought college would be like, but it wasn’t this. I didn’t expect it to be so homey. I also pictured myself when I got to college as a grown up, and hot girl. I thought my entire appearance would change.
It didn’t, but my attitude did.
My attitude about my body was extremely negative. I don’t ever remember looking in the mirror and finding myself attractive. My thoughts on myself ranged from mildly normal to downright ugly. College changed that.
I can look myself in the face now. I look at my hair and see the beautiful curls. I see my bright green and brown eyes. I see a strong face, and body of a small, but hard worker. I like myself now.
Not even just how I look. I like my personality. I like how I act most of the time. I’ve matured, and found out who I am.
College changes people-it changed me in so many ways. This change is something I wouldn’t give up for the world.
