The first day of school is always the hardest. The weird stares, the fierce whispers that you somehow think are meant for you to hear, the endless staring at the tips of your crappy Ardene boots and wondering why you didn't wear something different. I always tell myself that I'll be different- stand out, be confident and say hi to everyone I pass. Uh, maybe later. But for now, that is what I'd call, heck to the no. Once I'd unloaded a nervous, tense Skittles from the trailer, which, on a totally unrelated note, was attatched to my Mom's piece-of-crap minivan. So the ride must have been pretty uncomfortable for the poor gelding. He seemed to calm down, though, once I gave him a few reassuring pats. God, I wish someone was here to give me some freaking reassuring pats! Even a sugary latte would be nice. But as I watch Mom wipe away tears and wave to me from the red van- after, of course, way-too-enthusiastily helping me unload my bags into my dorm and overorganize everything down to the last Sharpie pen, I realize how hard the first few weeks will probably turn out to be. Hard, I mean. Really hard.
Canterwood is gorgeous, it really is, but that's not what I was thinking as I swung open the gigantic, posh-looking gateway and stepped onto campus. (mini-heart attack... my first step onto campus!!!) It was more nerves right then. But that didn't stop me from noticing the victorian lampposts, the fancy-looking stables and the line of shops that lay ahead of me. Oh, and, the people too. Lot's and lot's and lot's of people. And not one of them said hello... but I guess that really should be my job, since, you know, I'm on their turf now. Just as I had started to file my thoughts into a somewhat orderly fashion, read, only a few stray worries, someone tapped me on the shoulder. I darn well turned around, of course, what kind of an impression would I make if it was the first day and I was already ignoring people? I planted a nervous smile on my face and swung around.
