Another student orientation is today. So many wonderful new freshmen. So many eyes. So many smiles. So many stories. So many girls.
And I have only one year with them. Not even that really. Really only nine months.
I will leave and they will enjoy life on my playground.
They will know my name and my face, for I will walk through their hallways of homes as I make my RD rounds. Oh how I long to make each one happy, to make sure each one knows Christ as his or her savior and friend. I want to tell each nervous parent that I will take care of their son or daughter. I want to love each and every one of them.
Last night Jeanine and I went for a walk through the cool mountain night. We get along well.
Dan has gone away for the weekend. Not to my surprise, Vince and Laura have gotten back together. My mom and Nate may come up on Sunday.
A month from today, all of these new stories and eyes will be here at the same time.
This should be a fun year; ’97-’98. My senior year in college.
I’m nearly 21 years old.
Where suddenly have I gone?
