Feels like forever

So, I almost totally forgot that I even had a blog... Imagine that! I had hoped and planned on writing in this blog more often so that I could sit down as an old lady and feel great about everything I had done in college. Needless to say, it did not happen. I could blame school and work, but honestly it's hard for me to express my feelings without being to throw my hands around or raise my voice; and I can't throw my hands around while typing and I guess Ii could use ALL CAPS for yelling, but that's a lot of effort... Regardless, I guess I just felt the need to sum up my time here at college. 

Freshman year: hated school, hated people, hated not knowing what I wanted to do with my life. In other words I was scared to death! I hate change, and college has been pretty much the biggest change of my life. I made some friends, lost some friends, muddled through some of my classes, and did great in others. Freshman year for me; really got me out of my shell and taught me how to be a "normal" kid. (kind of)

Freshman/Sophomore summer: got a job, took some summer classes to get ahead, made some money, spent some money, kayaked some, and had a relaxed summer.

Sophomore year: I really couldn't tell you much about sophomore year, it's not because of college related activities, but because it went by really fast looking back. Had some great professors that I still talk when I get the chance, made some more friends, realized who were fake friends and who was a real friend. Quit my job and got a new one. Met the love of my life! Got another tattoo. Had one roommate who was pretty dang awesome.

Sophomore/Junior Summer: Went to Scotland for a study abroad-had a blast, did some more kayaking, worked a whole lot.

Junior fall: had some hard classes that kicked my butt, realized that I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life anymore, unfriended more people that were super fake and not worth my time. Got the coolest and cutest cat in the world. Worked my butt off at work and slacked at school a little and had the worst GPA of my life that semester. Became better friends with a girl that I met freshman year and argued with about antibiotics in chickens (ps she was right and I was wrong). Learned a little bit about soil science. haha

Now here I am my Senior year Spring Semester: got promoted at work because someone finally realized how hard I was working, been dating my best friend for over a year now, rekindled a friendship that I should have never put out. Still have no idea what I'm going to be doing in life, but I've realized that it's okay and that my calling will find me. I've realized that throughout my college experiences that I have changed a lot. The change that I was so afraid of freshmen year actually turned me into a pretty great person. I'm a lot less judgmental, I have a better outlook on life, and I defiantly don't hate everyone in the world like I did when I first came to college!! I'm met some pretty great people and I'm lucky to have crossed paths with them. 

Hopefully my life will have many adventures ahead, but all I care about is being happy. Finding a job that I won't hate going to everyday, being able to remain in contact with my friends and family and most of all just spending my days not looking back and thinking what if, but thinking wow I've been so blessed in my life; because I have.
