I’ve been in the air for about a month and a half now. The captain has turned the seatbelt sign off and I’m able to use my laptop to watch “How I Met Your Mother” reruns. I’m starting to get use to it; the tiny leg room doesn’t bother me so much anymore, and I like the little snacks they hand out. My routine is forming. I think I can do this.

Hey, my name is Joey Spadoni and I am a freshman. I’m not going to write these blog posts with the finest and most formal use of diction and syntax and I’m also not going to txt u wats good at HoCro. I intend to treat this blog as if it were a letter to a friend of mine, where I can tell him/her all about my experience at HC. So here we go…

Holy Cross is awesome! As I said [in my cheesy intro metaphor] I’ve been at HC for about a month and half and things have been going great. I was the only kid going to Holy Cross from my high school and I was a little nervous about meeting people. However, right off the bat [at the first football game] I hung out with some of the guys on my hall, and we’ve been friends ever since.

: Anthony, Rob, Michael, Me, Brian, Bart”]I am really enjoying my classes. I’m in Calculus, Psychology, American Sign Language, and my Montserrat. I’m in the Natural World cluster, in Professor Reents class, “Go West Young Man and Young Woman.” I enjoy it and it’s challenging, but it’s shaping me into a better writer. I think I want to be a Psychology Major, with a minor in Deaf Studies, so I really lucked out with my classes this semester.

Starting college is like boarding a flight to an unknown destination. Before the trip you’re nervous about who you’ll sit next to, what the food will be like, and if there will be enough leg room. Well before your first semester you will have many of the same thoughts: what’s my roommate going to be like, will I get sick of the food, and will my dorm room be big enough. I can answer one of them for you right now… whether you end up at HC or not, you will get sick of the food [but you’ll make it work].

I’m really excited to fill this blog with all sorts of great stories and interesting pictures for you guys. I can tell this is going to be a good  year…
