I was worried about Mosaic. I stressed and panicked and tried to mask those tumultuous emotions with packing and Smallville. But eventually, I couldn’t escape it anymore. It was Mosaic day. I had to face the consequences of letting my teacher talk me into applying despite the fact that I had no journalistic experience.
Thankfully, it wasn’t and hasn’t been as awful as I expected. My heart may have felt like it was trying its best to desert me during those first few talks when expectations where set by the editors and unfamiliar journalistic terms were abound. But, to my immense relief, those terms were explained and I realized I wasn’t the only one in the middle of intimidating and unfamiliar territory. This is an Experience, one all eighteen of us are going through together.
So I don’t know if we’re going to end up as close as last year’s class and I don’t know if I’ll end up in tears because of my stories. But I do know I won’t regret my decision to be a part of Mosaic. Even if there is a whole secret colony of cockroaches living in the girl’s showers.
