It was a day that I had eagerly waited, and it was finally here. It was time to leave home and go to college. My life had revolved around home and school, and to say the truth, I felt the need for a new challenge, a new environment, and perhaps new friends. More than quenching my academic thirst, a change of environment was the reason why I longed for the admission day. I remember I work up earlier than usual that day. By the time my parents were waking up, I was ready to go, and I kept pestering them to hurry up. I reported to college and started the academic life, with new friends and new challenges. However, as I was to learn later, living in the two words was challenging and required a careful balancing act.
