It’s gotten to the point where I am HEATING UP my sweet tea. Yes, I’m that cold.
I can hear all of my Cobber friends now, bless their hearts: “This isn’t even cold.” Thanks for the update, y’all. I’m still cold.
But it’s so unbelievably worth it.
The last few months have been a blur – filled with studying, softball, trips to my happy place (Anderson Commons, you will always have my heart. And my stomach.), casual sprints across campus to make it to work on time, hanging out with friends…
Blessed is honestly the only world I can use to describe it all. I’m blessed with a family that is never anything less than super supportive, with friends that are constantly putting a smile on my face when I need it most (usually with food), and with professors that see my potential and push me to succeed. I’ve also been blessed with countless opportunities during my time on this currently snow-trimmed campus. The opportunity I’ve come to appreciate most – and often the one we might think about last – is the opportunity to grow. Grow from who I was in high school, grow from who I was when I first dragged my suitcases into Erickson Hall, and even grow from who I was yesterday. I’m honestly so beyond excited to see what the future holds for me.
Although, I’m currently not so excited by the fact that my very near future holds about a week of upcoming finals and presentations and papers.
… I’m gonna need more sweet tea.
Just kidding!… well, kinda. I really am excited for all the experiences I have ahead of me. It’s just going by so fast. I feel like just yesterday I was walking through the doors of Northgate for my first day of high school. And now, about fourteen-hundred miles from where I tossed my graduation cap into the air, my first semester of college is winding down. I’ve definitely grown.
Just not toward the weather yet. I’m still cold.
