The only truly stressful part of college so far (other than moving in and trekking to meetings all over campus in pouring rain) is that I've been used to having close friends around me at almost all times and now, by default of not having those people, I feel a bit disconnected and alone. I've met lots of great people but rarely have I talked at length with the same people multiple times. I'm constantly trying to evaluate whether or not I'm spending an appropriate amount of time in my dorm room, if I should seek out the laughter down the hall, what table I should eat at in Saga, etc. I guess I should keep in mind that I've been here only 27 hours.

I'm really happy, my roommate is very nice, and the entire atmosphere here is fun and peaceful. Earlham is a wonderful place if I can be happy here after having said goodbye to loved ones and without having definite, stabilized new friendships. The past day has been a reinforcement that I made the right decision in enrolling here.
