After going through my first week as a college student at Longwood, I have come to realize that I can officially call it home.
Going from being an only child and having my own room to moving into a small dorm room with three other girls had my anxiety up to the max. I was very nervous that my room wouldn’t feel like home and that I would get homesick very easily. But that was not the case at all.
My dorm room couldn’t get any cozier, cooler or safe. My roommate and suitemates have helped me a lot with making our dorm and dorm room feel like home—and I am very grateful.
Although, at this writing, I can’t hang anything on our walls until the paint is completely dry, I am very pleased with how my room looks. I have been able to create the dream room that I never was able to have at home.
I am beyond excited to spend the rest of the year in my new home!
