Wall Pond

Initially, I fostered a lot of reservations about coming to Coastal. It wasn’t my original plan and it wasn’t, by any means, what I had dreamed of when I imagined college. I wanted a university with more than one library. I wanted a campus filled with people leaning against trees as they read and studied. I wanted an invitation to a classy, intellectual party every other night where like minds could talk about their big, worldly plans and ideas.

But sometimes life takes you elsewhere and you come to find that every situation is nothing more or less than what you make of it. Photoshop might be criticized for producing false expectations, but there’s a benefit to it as well.

If what you see before isn’t everything you expected it to be, then fix it. Find its good qualities and enhance them. Find the bad ones and leave them in the shadows. You might be surprised how similar the final product is to the image you first had in mind.
