The highlight of my day was a 45-minute conversation I had with a friend from back home. This has been a common theme since I got here and it seems that nothing I do is ever more refreshing than talking with someone from home. Tonight's conversation was all over the place, but the common thread throughout the conversation was the commonalities that we share. It's nice to realize that I'm not alone and, although I've begun a new phase in my life, there are many other people experiencing things just like I am. It's interesting how we can be in different places in life, but still be experiencing the same things.
I don't think that I mentioned the other blog I'm a part of now. A friend of mine decided it would be good to have a blog where many people post to discuss our perspectives on transitions. Specifically, we're all in some phase of the college-to-real-world transition. I think it's a good idea and I hope I can contribute something meaningful. I'm not a super writer and I often have trouble thinking of interesting, useful and creative things to say, but if I do think of something that has all those attributes, I'll post it over there.
Still reading the Chronicles
I'm in the third book and still enjoying the series. Nothing to report except that I'm still reading them and I'm going to knock out another chapter right now.
