As I wake up from a solid night of sleep in my new dorm room, a flood of thoughts sequentially enter my mind. I am reminded of how I went out on a limb by choosing RIT since I was unfamiliar with the school, the people, and the whole state of New York. And yet I am pleased to say that this is already beginning to feel like my home away from home. I have met many friendly people, and I feel that I can just totally be myself. I can't wait to plunge further into this new adventure. I plan on making memories and friendships that will last a lifetime. Cheers to a new chapter of life. I am so blessed to have this opportunity to attend RIT.
