Growth

As I sit here in an empty room with bare walls and a blow up mattress on the ground to last me until I move out completely, I can't help but reminisce about my four college years that have been every bit of the word extraordinary. I risked a lot to come to Gainesville and transfer into the school of my dreams. I spent countless hours studying for exams in order to produce the perfect GPA to get into the University of Florida. During that time I met life long friends and attended some awesome events. My family couldn't have been any closer and I even dated a few good men. When the announcement came that I had been accepted to UF, I was surrounded by friends for the emotional phone calls. My dreams had come true, I was officially a Gator. (a family tradition) From then until this moment, I have worked harder than any other time in my life. I have received a bachelors and most of my masters (to finish in dec) in a very short time. I have made friendships stronger and created new ones. I have loved and lost. I have learned so much about myself and those around me.

Most of all, I have learned to live a little more and worry a lot less. Life is about the moments that take your breath away and they don't come along every day. I have learned that the "you wont's" should always be attempted and the "i cant's" should be saved for your geriatric days and if opportunity presents itself, take it.

As I'm writing this I am becoming emotional thinking about leaving this town that has become home. This, for me, is the end of an era. The beginning of a new chapter. And the growth I have been looking for since I moved here. I look forward to this new phase and say cheers to the last four years.



Laugh Out Loud.


Love Every Chance You Get.



Learn From Every Mistake And Every Success.
