To My College Friends As We All Go Back Home For The Summer

To My College Friends As We All Go Back Home For The Summer

We all have two homes now, our hometown, and our college campus.

Our semester is almost over, which marks the end of our first year of college. The moment we've been waiting for, summer is finally coming.

As summer closely approaches, we are more aware that we will all be saying goodbye for a few months very soon. I could have never imagined gaining such an amazing group of friends in one year of college, over 1,000 miles away from my hometown.

It has been such a fun year meeting new people, exploring new things, and finding more about myself.

Since meeting all of you guys, my nervous stomach about being far from home is no longer there. My positive outlook on life grew larger and I feel safe in my college community.

I know I will always have a good day because all of you guys make me laugh, give me advice, and are always down to hang out. This summer I will no longer be nervous about the what-ifs from last summer and imagining what college would be like and how to make friends. I no longer need to worry about trying to find my place in college, because of you guys I have a place.

We all have two homes now, our hometown, and our college campus.

Even though during the summer we will not be able to have Mellow Mushroom Monday's, study sessions, beach days, jam sessions, or movie nights, we will all be in each other's thoughts and look forward to doing all of that next semester.

During the summer we will be apart but we will be able to go back to our hometown and see family and high school friends. It will be nice for all of us to go home for a little while and reconnect with our roots.

Once summer ends, we will all be back together doing all the fun things we love to do around Charleston.

Love y'all endlessly!

10 Shows Netflix Should Have Acquired INSTEAD of Re-newing 'Friends' For $100 Million

Could $100 Million BE anymore of an overspend?


Netflix broke everyone's heart and then stitched them back together within a matter of 12 hours the other day.

How does one do that you may wonder. Well they start by announcing that as of January 1st, 2019 'Friends' will no longer be available to stream. This then caused an uproar from the ones who watch 'Friends' at least once a day, myself including. Because of this giant up roar, with some threats to leave Netflix all together, they announced that 'Friends' will still be available for all of 2019. So after they renewed our hope in life, they released that it cost them $100 million.

$100 million is a lot of money, money that could be spent on variety of different shows.

What I Have And Will Continue To Learn From Working With Kids

I always say that I will learn more from my students than they will from me, and I cannot wait to start that journey.


I have loved kids ever since I can remember.

I was an only child up until I was 5 years old. Those years were great, but I spent a good amount of them laying on the floor, crying and begging my parents for another sibling.

Soon my sister came, then another sister and then my brother.

I loved them so much and wanted to do nothing but care for them.

My siblings made me realize how much I love working with kids, how much I love teaching them and how much I love learning from them.

I had the opportunity to help my dad coach my sister's softball and basketball teams. This was one of the best experiences I have ever had.

Throughout high school, I spent time volunteering in elementary classrooms, and any "uncertainty" I had about what I wanted to do with my life was gone.

The "uncertainty" was the fact that I maybe wouldn't get paid enough, I wouldn't be good enough or people would think I wasn't smart enough.

But I can learn more from kids than I could ever learn from my professors.

And I'm not saying anything against any profession. But we all have our things.

And mine is kids, mine is teaching.

Children teach me to take life a little less seriously.

They have taught me that you truly never know what other people are going through and we are all going through something.

Children will teach me to keep my patience.

They will keep me young forever.

Children have taught me to never pass judgment and always spread kindness

They will teach me lessons that I can't even imagine right now and things I don't even know.

I always say that I will learn more from my students than they will from me, and I cannot wait to start that journey.
