Thanksgiving is both a wonderful and horrifying time of year. It is a time when we give thanks, spend time with our families, and make disparaging remarks about the people who are not present. My Thanksgiving break's high point was not Thanksgiving dinner (Sorry, Mom), nor was it my uncle's attempts to publicly humiliate me at every turn (Sorry, Dave). It was overshadowed by some current developments in my academic and social life.
My transfer application to Towson University was accepted, and I plan on visiting the school in mid-December. I absolutely love the Baltimore/Annapolis/D.C. area. Even if Towson University does not have much of a central campus with beautiful grass, it has something my current institution does not have: life. Things happen around the school. Baltimore is 20 minutes away. That is much better than having a "city" like Greensboro, NC 40 minutes from campus. Whatever Towson has, it must be better than a town with one bar and too many Greek houses.
There is nowhere to go from here but up.
