Back to college

Tomorrow I go back to college tomorrow, in a way it feels like starting college for the first time, because I am going to a different school now. It also feels like starting new because I am starting back after taking a year off. After much thought and pray I am in the process of changing majors.  I'll post more about the changing majors when it becomes official.
