Check Your Calendar

Its almost that time right? That was more of a rhetorical question because I already knew! If you felt like this was a quick summer and its over too soon (which it isn’t) you can blame me, I was wishing the days right along with all my might.

Its been a hectic July and beginning of August. Working, preparing to move up, trying to figure out what to buy here and leave for when I get up. I’ll be up for good in about 10 days, which is wild to me. I’ve now been to Oswego 3 times in one summer smmmh. Next time I’m up for good.

This year is going to be crazy, it has the potential to Go There! I spoke to a couple of my friends (“The Team”) and we were discussing our various agendas and goals for this up and coming semester. All I can say is its going to be Bandoodles. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t hype.

I recently had a conversation with someone and when I asked them why they weren’t excited about going back to school they said its the same thing what am I suppose to be happy about the “tree’s and campus”…”Yay” for a moment I got upset and by that statement. I was like mannnn you don’t understand right now. You’re obviously not seeing it clearly. I guess they felt that I was excited just to be at school because it was new and I keep mentioning on different occasions and places (like here) on how nice our campus looks. I mean all that’s cookies and cream but the real reason I’m happy to be at school is because I get that sky is the limit feeling. I guess there are some “tree’s” that do that but they don’t sway in Oswego. I ALWAYS get this feeling every school year. My New Years always starts with the new school year. It just always made more sense that way. Really to me I never get that “ahhh this is a fresh start” feeling on January 1st; but the first day of a new semester?! Watch Out! That’s really when its time to unveil the big plans.

Not everyone is a new student like myself but in some capacity there is something left to be accomplished this semester otherwise you wouldn’t be returning. I don’t know what it is maybe its shooting for that GPA that’s been eluding you or being anxious to make a difference in your club, that new E-board this position, what ever the personal goal it maybe.

The point I’m trying to make is you don’t have to wait for New Years to turn that new leaf and it doesn’t have to be about tree’s to be excited to be back at school. If all else fails come back to Blogger #23, He’s gone entertain you with his Year!
