New Home

I am sitting in my new apartment and it is completely quiet.
My family just left, and yes I shed a few tears. 
I am excited, and yet oh so terrified on what this semester will bring. 
This will be an experience like no other.
A huge adventure.
I really can't wait to see what kind of people I will end up meeting, and who I will call as friends. 
Where will all this lead me in life? 
My new home is MSU. 
My new memories will be from here. 
I pray that God will lead me through each day. 
Guiding me to make the right decisions. 

Let the new adventure begin.
