Athens Happens

Today is the first day of the A to Z Challenge and I am already nervous for it, I almost forgot! It has been a hectic weekend though. My sister and her best friend came down to visit me here in Athens. And it was so much fun! We definitely bonded and had an amazing time. It made me think about school and my first experiences of college life. They had so many questions and were so unsure of the city and their surroundings. It made me remember my first month in Athens. And thinking back on it, I am so happy I made the decision that I did. I do not want to be anywhere else right now. Every decision I have made up to this point has helped me grow and learn so much. And I would not want to do it any other place than Athens, Ohio.

I remember my first week of classes in my COMS 110 class, which was Communication Between Cultures. It was one of my first COMS classes and my first week of college classes. I had no idea what I was doing. We were talking about the culture of Athens and an older guy in the class raises his hand and says "I love Athens so much, everyone is so nice, everyone has a beard and smokes. It's awesome." Of course the whole class starts laughing, but there was a lot of truth to what he said. Everyone is so nice in Athens. No one judges or cares what other weird things people do, because chances are they do weird things themselves. There are people unicycling up Jeff hill, walking around without shoes, walking on tight ropes, and playing humans vs. zombies. There's always something interesting going on in Athens, guaranteed!

Marching 110 Love!
