One Interesting Thing About Me: I biked around Vermont last summer!

My Best Memory From My First Year At SMC: Me and my friends dancing in all of our dorm halls. I met them my Freshman year and we would play music in the hallways/common rooms and dance when we were having a bad day.

One Thing I Wish I Knew Before I Moved In My First Year: Don't compare yourself to anyone. What works for you may not work for everyone else and what works for everyone else may not work for you. Don't waste time trying to do something that doesn't work for you, or keep doing something that isn't working for you currently. You are who you are in the moment, so don't compare yourself or hold expectations for who you once were or who you are becoming.
