It was now the following summer. I had decided to attend summer classes, to mitigate liberal arts requirements between my major studies. The campus that was once sprawling became meek, silent, and lonely. It was the first time I had ever dealt with such isolation, though I had clear goals and requirements. I lived life as if in some catatonic state, and became malnourished. I became entranced by the beauty of the desolate fields, expanding almost endlessly in every possible direction.
