1st year  
So I was just browsing and thinking about this community.  How did each one of your first year of either college or work or whatever it is that you did go for you?  Did you gain the infamous "freshman fifteen", did you finally break out of your shell and become more outgoing?  How was the workload for everyone?

For me I had a blast this year.  It's crazy but I can't believe that the first year is over for me just about in a week.  Today was the last day of classes and now Finals start on Thursday for us.  I must say though that I am going to miss so many people in my dorm, I've made amazing friends and I can't believe that we've only been in school for 9 months but I felt like I knew them my entire life.  I must say I didn't change that much though, stayed the same but did become a little bit more outgoing and I didn't gain the freshman fifteen which I must say I am happy about.

I've gained about 5 really great friends and a host of acquaintances. I'm at a huge university, but I like to know people, and I think that I've achieved that goal for now.

I changed my major; I'm thinking of working with student government next year, and I've already started networking with the big names in my field thanks to my professors. I'm hoping to start to help with some linguistics research by the end of winter term '09.

As far as the freshman fifteen, it's more like the freshman ten. It's nothing that a little conscious intake can't solve.

I can say that the positives of the year have definitely outweighed the negatives! I love my school, and from the looks of it and my major, I'll be here for a while! :)
