Two Years Later

Two years ago today I officially became an alumna of The University of Georgia. It's hard to believe it's really been two whole years since I walked under the arch, rang the chapel bell and turned my tassel to have my two degrees (Political Science and Spanish) conferred upon me. In honor of this anniversary I wanted to share with you a few things I've learned about life and myself since my time as an undergrad.
  • Life can really  kick you in the butt sometimes
  • No matter what happens though, you'll get through it so keep smiling, because this too shall pass.
  • I never thought I would get used to having to wake up before 8 am everyday.
  • I never thought I would yearn to go back to class.
  • When it rains, it has a tendency to pour.
  • You can't pick who your family is
  • You definitely can't pick who you love
  • But you can pick who your friends are, so pick wisely. No point in spending time with people you don't enjoy your company and vice versa.
  • I actually enjoy reading for fun (what a novel concept.) get it? ha-ha. it was too easy. sorry
  • Creative outlets are necessary.
  • Walking does wonders to help clear the head.
  • Budgets are really important. You feel even better when you stick to one.
  • You're really not as old and wise as you think. 
I know there are a million more, but my coffee refuses to kick in, and I actually need to go work. So. Have a lovely day ladies!

Congratulations! I miss school so much sometimes. I'm thinking about taking a class just for fun! I minored in Spanish. It's such a beautiful language!

I found your blog through the Lovely Letters email! New follower! Come say hi sometime!
