"how lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard."

I can't believe freshman year of college is already over! It feel like just yesterday that my parents and I were driving not campus feeling very overwhelmed but excited for the unknown and what was to come. I've met so many amazing people this year and have grown as a person in many ways. I think it's so important to take a moment and reflect on all the lessons and experiences that shaped the last year. All the friends I have made made it so hard to leave for the summer (I'm already ready to go back!), but the positive changes I've seen in myself throughout the year leave me challenged and motivated to continue these improvements, and come back next fall fully refreshed and ready to take advantage of every moment. The fact that I'm already 1/4 done with college shows how quickly it's going to pass; I refuse to look back in three years and regret not embracing every moment that I have in college. Already counting down the days to go back, but until then, here's to a relaxing and amazing summer with my family and friends from home!
