First, I want to apologize that my blog posting has been non-existent this semester. Your last couple months your senior year are chaotic and absolutely fly by. I have been running around doing group projects, working at my internship, finishing my term as Finance Chair in SGA and interviewing for jobs. Needless to say, I have had little time to blog. However, now that it’s almost over, I wanted to reflect and give a little insight to all you youngsters.
These past four years have been the best and worst years of my life. I have learned more about myself as a person and have matured more than I ever thought possible. I have gone through some pretty tough moments with friends and relationships, but in the end those moments gave me the courage and strength to press on and achieve my highest potential. How cheesy, right? But so incredibly true.
My advice for all you that are still embarking on this journey of growing up is to enjoy every minute. As everyone says, college flies by, and they couldn’t be more right. Join organizations that you would have never thought you would be interested in. After all, I joined SGA on a whim, got voted in, have been a representative the past three years and was Finance Chair the past year. Yes, finance chair. Am I a finance major? No. Did I ever think I would have been involved in student government? Not really. But it happened, and I loved every minute of it.
Also, bring out your inner nerd and get super into school and your major. This past semester I was on the WINNING Campaigns team for the National Student Advertising Competition. We spent countless nights in the library until 3am, and for at least two weeks, I was spending an average of 10 hours at the library a day. This was terrible, but what made it better was that my team was super into the project. We all joked around in the pods at 2am and hammered out the plans book and presentation in record time, only having started over a total of about 6 times. It was exhausting and frustrating, but one of those moments of college I will never forget.
In order to make the most of your college years, you have to get out of your comfort zone. I know I did, and I had the best experience at TCU I could ask for! Thanks to all of you who I shared memories with! My TCU family will forever hold a place in my heart.
