Opening Thoughts

This is a new experience for me--writing down my thoughts, feelings and experiences. I suppose I should start by introducing myself. My name is Lindsay, and I'm a pretty average college student at Texas A&M University. I think, like a lot of us here, I am still unsure of a lot of things regarding my future and myself. It's like we are thrown out of our comfort zone where everything is safe and known and predictable, and forced to hit the ground and run--regardless of the lack of faith we may have in our leg's ability to run or to even stand. Or, to put it in another way, we are pushed out of the crowd where we have fit so nicely and unnoticed for so long, and into the spotlight. We look around and there is suddenly only one person left--me. The parents and support group we may have had at home are gone and we are left with ourselves. It may sound like a pretty bleak affair at this point, but I think it is in this climate of uncertainty that we find out who we really are and who we are willing to become.
