Seeing as the first snow has finally hit Michigan, it’s safe to say that fall is pretty much over. By this point, the leaves have almost all fallen off the trees, and the air has lost the crisp quality it once had. The world is more still, as if to signal the coming of a long, cold winter.
I’m excited, but also sad. The ending of fall also signifies the rapidly approaching conclusion of the fall semester. While I look forward to all that the spring semester holds, a large part of me is terrified. On January 3rd, I will be embarking on one of the greatest adventures of my life: going to Spain. I’ve never been abroad before (not counting Canada or Bermuda) and I have no idea what to expect. Will I adapt to the culture? Will I feel lonely and isolated being so far from home?
So many questions are swimming around my head. However, I am trying to focus on the positives. My fall semester has been a wonderful experience, and I am looking forward to the future fall semesters to come. As my favorite season of the year finally comes to an end, I’ve decided to reflect on some of my favorite things about it. I hope you've enjoyed this year's fall as much as I have.
