Anyway, the point is that I’m really happy now, probably happier than I’ve been in a long time. I’m introducing myself to people, having extended conversations, and when time doesn’t permit a conversation, I at least try to smile and wave. These are not actions that the Daniel most people know would take. Repeatedly, I had been told to expect to become a different person, that college changes people, but to change so dramatically so quickly is shocking to me, almost unbelievable, suggesting that perhaps I had completed the change before arriving here, and only now that I no longer have the comfort of a well defined group of friends who have a well defined definition of me, can the changes take affect.
A surprising aspect of the friends I’ve made so far is that the majority of them are female. In fact, my two closest friends here right now are female. Perhaps this just reflects the fact that the male to female ratio at brandeis is 2:3, but I’d like to think there’s a more significant explanation, eventhough I have no idea what it could be. I’m a male, by the way, in case that wasn’t clear.
Yes, I should write in here more often now because none of my classes are very writing intensive and I want not to get rusty.
