Being thrown into a room filled with 20 other teenagers can feel like being thrown into a shark tank. As scared as I was yesterday I am warming up to the idea of myself as a journalist. I must say the other kids are very welcoming and not as intimidating as I thought they would be. They don’t bite as far as I know. The dorms are pretty roomy compared to others, but do get stuffy. I must say the food card is very convenient. It’s like being a Kardashian, you don’t have to worry about money – except they get designer clothes and you get a turkey wrap. The store has a variety of snacks but I do have to question the freshness of the fruit. In my mind I feel like a college kid so I do have to work on managing my sleep. I am looking forward to trying out new things and broadening my horizons.
