okay, here i go- trying this tumblr experiment out again!
I just finished my first semester of my real (i mean it!) senior year & I am in shock because of how fast time has gone. Just last January, as I rang in 2011 with friends & cheers, I was worried of my new chosen major and path in life. Who would have ever guessed I’d be slowly moving out of the beloved “62”, where I’ve made some of the best college memories. Whether they were late nights on the apartment side, going next door to 64 for a drink, or falling like dominoes during a snow blizzard on the porch-I know that I will forever cherish these memories.
For me, 2011 was definitely a rough roller coaster ride. Heartaches to heartbreaks, new friends and lost friends, and tears of joy and frustration are the satellite view of my year. But as I dive into and break the waters surface, I can see that everything in my life happened for a reason. The people I’ve met, the decisions I’ve made, and the opportunities I’ve gained are all part of the bigger picture that I’ve dreamed about the past 23 years of my life. It’s a refreshing feeling that I hope never goes away.
Today, as 2011 ends and 2012 begins, I hope to appreciate the years gone by and the years to come. I’m ready to face new challenges, new obstacles and a new year with more motivation and more drive to succeed. It’s no longer proving to everyone else that I can do something more than what seems capable of me. I’m ready to prove to myself that dreams are meant to come true.
