It pains me that there is less than a month left for me to be fully immersed into this community, this city, and this place I grew to love. A lot of thoughts have been running through my mind for the past few days as I was preparing the next issue of the Broad Street Journal. The articles that people turned in were very easy to relate to; sometimes I felt like they just copied and pasted my emotions and wrote it own on a piece of paper.
The semester has started off a little rough because I have had the thought of transferring out of Messiah when I came here. Also, the smaller number of students than usual had me really worried; would I even be able to make friends from such a small pool? But the thing is, I did. In fact, I made strong, deep relationships that I am sure I’ll still be having 10 years from now. Words can’t even express how thankful I am for even making it this far without being a hot mess (although I was very close sometimes).
I love MCPC. I love Temple. I love Philly. I love America. The culture, diversity, air (yes, even with the pollution), atmosphere, history, richness… I’m not sure if I’ll ever be able to exposed to more “America-ness” than this.
And with only a month left, Carpe Diem has never had more relevance than this.
