a direct quote from someone in my first year seminar class: new york, new york. you'd never guess, so i'll tell you: it's about new york. she said i was like a butterfly because i sporadically come and leave the group of us students who are lucky enough to be studying the big apple this fall. this is only partially true. i do find the need to flutter my way around a bit, but only a bit.
everyone on my floor seems to be getting an animal name.
even with all the welcomes to college and offers for help, this is quite a bite to be chewing.
i've made my deal with the devil for the books,
i've worn flipflops in the shower,
i've met four bens, three daniels, two graces, and one hudson, (which was most surprising)
and i've become a college student.
this reminds me of a haiku i wrote my sister for her birthday:
like the fuzzy worm,
you have slept, and grown, and changed.
so you butterfly
