Early Morning Musings

The alarm clock goes off--6:30 a.m. What is with this whole getting up earlier than the sun thing? I get dressed, drive thirty minutes to school to work on a presentation and attempt to get a Power Point presentation together. This is going to be a long day. But I will fulfill one assignment right now:

I have chosen a topic for my blog: Girl Meets World in the fashion of that Boy Meets World show that is shown in re-runs on the Disney Channel. I like the concept of that show: meeting a world of people, places and experiences that growing up extends.

I will be meeting the world while at Seton Hill. Though many people do not believe that university life is a place to contact "real life", I think otherwise. As a commuter, I face that early morning just like every other working stiff and face the challenges of paying bills, washing clothes, getting important things in on-time, and buying lunch for myself (a very expensive thing sometimes).

But I do have parents and I am still a dependent on them. I understand that, but I feel guilty eating grapes from the family fridge. What is happening to me? I need to be a grown-up, but a child too--I am in purgatory. Does anyone else feel this way?
