9:40 a.m. "Great," I thought. I expected to be late on my first day of college. I ended up behind an elderly person who was driving 40 miles per hour in a 55 mile per hour zone. That irritated me. I was so nervous. 9:55 a.m. Practically running from my car to my first class, I made it on time by the skin of my teeth. 10:00 a.m. As I walk into my first class, it seemed as if all eyes were on me.
