My first blog post. Hey! My name is…
What to say for the very first blog post EVER is kind of nerve-wracking… It feels like it needs to be epic, or at least make an impression that everyone will remember forever. But, in fact, it doesn’t need to be like that. I’ve decided to just be myself and show y’all who I really am. I think that is the most important thing to remember in life, is to always be yourself. It may seem appealing sometimes to act like someone else, or to pretend to like things that you may not to fit in, but it just makes it so much harder in the end. Why would you want to be friends with someone who doesn’t like you, for you?
Through my [almost] 21 years of life, I have experienced a bit, and I feel that sharing past, present, and future will only benefit me [and those around me] in the long run! I am starting over, not because anything happened, but because I finally decided to start following my dreams, no matter what the cost, battle, or difficulty it may cause. I feel that following my dreams [and everyone to follow theirs] is
one of the THE most important thing to do in our lifetime.
Although I am not a college freshman anymore, I feel that I am finally going to attend the college of my dreams and start life over. In fact, I am actually going to be a junior, and I am transferring to Clemson University. I have wanted to attend Clemson from a young age, and even though I did not apply senior year of high school [oops], I feel that it is never too late to follow your dreams. It may not always be easy [this is one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do in my life] but in the end, I feel that every struggle, every
hill mountain, is worth it. Whether it be attending the school of your dreams, traveling the world, or starting a blog, everyone can achieve their dreams, not matter how big or small, you just have to put your mind to it!
I want people to know, that it’s never too late, for anything. I worried that it was too late for me to follow my dreams, but through encouragement from my boyfriend and family, I learned that it is never too late. I have never felt so excited in my life before this new chapter that I am starting, and I wouldn’t change it for the world. On the flip side, I wouldn’t change the experiences I have gained from my previous school. They have helped to shape who I really am, have helped me gain immaculate friendships, sisters, and experiences, and have guided me in my studies. I’m not going to lie, I have my complaints about my last school, otherwise I wouldn’t have even thought about transferring, but I wouldn’t say I regret attending. It helped me learn what I like, what I don’t like, my strengths and weaknesses, and gave me the most amazing friendships I’ve ever had.
I just finished orientation this past week, and things have finally begun to fall into place. It has been a tough journey making sure everything has been accounted for [credits transferring, living, expenses, work, sorority, and so much more]. My to-do list has shrunk significantly which is definitely a relief! Only a few more things to take care of and I’ll be 100% set! I have my full class schedule for fall [YAY] and my apartment assignment should be finalized within the next day, at the latest! Everything is falling together after months of hard work and dedication, deadlines and details! I cannot wait for move-in day to arrive!
With that said, I wanted to share some pictures from one of my Clemson visits earlier this year! It’s truly a beautiful school, on top of offering the
amazing outstanding pre-veterinary program that will only benefit me in the long run. I have the amazing opportunity to be able to affiliate with my sorority at Clemson as well, which will only give me that lifelong support and friendship that I gained at my past school [twice the sisters?! YAY] I am blessed to have this amazing opportunity in my life, from following my dreams to having sisters supporting me the entire way, I don’t think I could be in a better position to transfer than I am now! Here I come TigerTown! Here are the pictures from my trip to Clemson earlier this year!
