What stands out most in your memory of the past three months at the MSC?
K: The last three months have been significant ones in a number of ways. Between moving away from home and adjusting to the weight of an increased learning curve, there have been times when I, personally, have felt exhausted, lacking in confidence, or just plain low. On the other hand, there have been times when I, thrilled to be an autonomous adult and enjoying the company of my new peers, have found my enthusiasm for life almost uncontainable. I have been amazed at how the community surrounds and supports each other through both of these experiences, and everything in between. Also, Same Page. This hilarious improv game has been the source of a couple of late nights and many laughs over the last few months.
R: How well this group has gelled together and how quickly it happened. I have lived here before, and groups normally gel together really well, but this group in particular seems to have become very close almost instantly after the fall retreat. There was even an instance recently where about seven of us guys crammed into one resident's room and started talking theology among other topics.
