The day was August 19th. Nerves filled my body as I drove onto campus. I was here two weeks early for cross country pre-season. The campus was very quiet and peaceful. I truthfully was not ready for a change. I did not want to go to college, I wanted to be back home with all my friends. Of course, the first night was rough and I was homesick. The bed was stiff and I missed my parents, but as time passed I slowly started getting used to the feeling of being away from home.
