It’s weird—I’ve grown a lot and overcome a lot over the past few months, but I feel like the gap between the end of last semester and now is so small, smaller than any gap between two school years that I can remember. I guess it’s because I’m still working to find the resolutions to the things I was trying to resolve.

To have gotten to attend move-in day for three out of the last four years is something special. When I moved in my own freshman year, I love how orientation felt like summer camp for big kids. And now, even though I’m not a peer mentor or an RA, the fact that they sort of treat me as I am one and the fact that I’m able to spread so much energy and help out others here and there beyond my Free Press responsibilities makes me feel like a bit of a camp counselor—something I dreamed of being for a while. Being involved in this sort of way and just being involved in general has allowed me many opportunities to talk to and get to know McDaniel staff. After three years and counting, so many people recognize me and respect me, even if they don’t know my name. And just being able to spend some extra time in and around the English department had made me feel even closer to the professors than I otherwise would be, even if we were otherwise pretty tight.

I am incredibly lucky to be a part of this campus and to get to do what I do as a student. Even if I manage to land on my feet and find a job soon after graduation, it’s hard to imagine me not really missing this a year from now.

Being back at college is wonderful, but between not having been as active as I’ve been over the past three days and just not having the emotional satisfaction that comes with being settled in, I’m pretty beat.

King Cheetah.

The king cheetah is a rare mutation of the cheetah characterized by a distinct fur pattern. The cause of this alternative coat pattern was found to be a mutation in the gene for transmembrane aminopeptidase Q, the same gene responsible for the striped ‘mackerel’  versus blotchy ‘classic’ patterning seen in tabby cats. The mutation is recessive and must be inherited from both parents for this pattern to appear, which is one reason why it is so rare.
