Since I been writing my blog, I have had sometime to think about how different and how much my life has changed since I’ve been attending Juniata. I’ve not only a difference and change in my surroundings, but within myself, and it’s led me to ask myself a question, “Which do you enjoy more? City or Rural?” I asked myself this question because now that I have finished the first semester of my junior year, I realized that I’ve lived in Huntingdon for almost three years, and it was not as bad as I thought it would have been.
Being from the city, I never in a millions years would have thought that I would apply to a college that wasn’t in the city, yet alone actually attend one. Coming to Juniata I believe has really benefited my life. If it wasn’t for me attending Juniata I would have never been able to broaden my horizons and been able to explore a world outside of Philadelphia. The life lessons and experience that I have gained while living in Huntingdon I feel has made me a more well rounded person.
Living in Huntingdon and attending Juniata has definitely benefited my life. I love the I was able to have this experience, but I most definitely know that I am and always will be a city girl. I enjoyed being able to live in Huntingdon, but I know that after college, I will most likely be looking for apartments in the city. Whether it’s in Philadelphia or not, I know that I can fall sleep peacefully to the hustle and bustle of a city, than I can to the sound of crickets.
