It's Not the First Day Of Classes

So today is the first day of classes At LaGrange. But I’m not going to any classes. Why? Because I graduated. Oh Yeah that’s why, I knew there was a reason. So as I have seen many a facebook status talking about it being first day of classes, I got sad. Right Now, I really am honestly sad that I don’t have any classes to go to tomorrow. That I won’t see everyone.  That I won’t be going to the caf and eating the crappy food. That I didn’t spend this past weekend moving all my stuff back to school. My Dad said to treat the summer like a regular summer. It was hard but that’s pretty much what it was. But now summer is over and where does that leave me? I miss being in LaGrange. Being on my own. Lots of people all around, but a lot of just me time too. There is something so special about living on campus. You have your own space but you aren’t alone. It is much different being back at home. For someone who often times feels like a little girl, living at home again after four years at college really magnifies that feeling. I am trying to enjoy this post-college life even at this starting point when it seems really hard to appreciate and enjoy. But there are hard days when I just wish today I could say it’s the first day of classes. But it is not. 


  1. Aww Elissa, I know how you feel. I used to LOVE the first day of classes. Seriously I was the girl who would get sooo excited over meeting new teachers, new people in my classes, and would pick out my outfit in advance. Heck, I would even get excited to do the first night of homework. I was basically a nerd. There are definitely things that I miss about college. But I do love that post college, it's like we get to start over a new journey to finding our niche in this world. And perk for us? We get to blog about it along the way :)

    I'm really so glad I met you! I feel like we have a lot in common with where we're at in life.

  2. I am going through the exact same thing. I graduated in May and this is the first August since I was a little kid that I haven't had school. It should be a relief, but I am sad! I miss the excitement of first days and buying school supplies. :(


I love reading y'alls comments! Let me know what you think : )
