Round 2

The first day of my sophomore year was much the same as the first day of my first year. I made a lot of the same mistakes. I made a lot of different ones. I did a few things better, but I did a few things worse as well. I don't feel like I have gained any real wisdom that would help a new student. I told a few first-years how they can sneak into the dining hall, but that is trivial. I'm not totally comfortable yet. I don't feel like I know what I'm doing. I'm having fun and I love my professors, but I wish it was within my comfort zone. 

The social pressures of my first year are gone. I know that I have friends, but with new courses, new instructors, a new schedule, and a new year it is not particularly easy. I should be able to conquer just about anything. I am physically weak and pathetic, but I have more mental toughness than most. I am not worried about this year, but Iam lacking the overwhelming confidence I thought I might have. *shrug* Here we go again.

I think pathetic is a word I would never use to describe any part of you.
Hope you settle into your new classes and routine soon; reading your post reminded me of those "first days" jitters.
