September 23, 2013 University 101 Journal 1 The USA Today article was completely relatable to me.  I know exactly how the  author was feeling and the point she was trying to make.  The first couple days or so I  thought this was going to be the best time of my life.  Carefree, happy, in control of my  own life – things I always thought I wanted.  But to be honest, that “new car smell” of  college went away just as quickly as it came.   I gradually became more and more homesick as time went on.  I missed the  familiar comforts of my home, my perfect bed, my dog, and my friends.  Like the author,  however, I put on a “mask” to cover up how I was really feeling.  I didn’t want anyone to  know that I wasn’t having the best of times here and that anything was bothering me.  I’m supposed to be that kid who allows nothing to faze him or get the best of him – but I

There are friendly people everywhere you turn. The teachers are fantastic and incredibly helpful and the atmosphere itself is overall a positive one. I know I will over come whatever “challenges” or “difficulties” I’m facing now so I’m not entirely worried. But I’d be lying if I said that my life was “perfect” right now – much like the author of the article....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.
