Don't blink

August 30, 2017 - 2:34pm
There I was, minding my own business, driving down Hagadorn to go to the gym last Sunday. I glanced over at Hubbard Residence Hall and there they were - new Spartans and their parents loading boxes, bags, bedding and books into laundry bins as they moved into their new home on campus. And...I burst into tears. I don't know why I'm surprised. It happens every single year. The start of the new school year is hectic, crazy and exciting. It's really something else to have 50,000 more people suddenly be around in the matter of a few days. It's energizing to see young, fresh-faced students taking the campus by storm, filling bike racks, crowding the sidewalks and starting their college careers. And yet, it always makes me cry. I can't help but think about the day that I moved into Campbell Hall, with all my experiences ahead of me. Back then I couldn't have imagined all the twists and turns my life would take, or that my path would eventually lead me back to East Lansing, literally steps away from that third-floor room. It honestly seems like it was only yesterday that I was navigating this big campus and figuring out where the library was.
