San Diego – I’m Here and I’m a Grown-up

I can’t believe graduation was only 1 week ago. Since then, I’ve driven across the country to start the next chapter of my life, and I’ve never felt so many emotions at once. I’m terrified. Absolutely positively terrified of the unknown. My best friend drove across the country with me. If it weren’t for her, I wouldn’t have made…

I Made a Friend

I’m kind of a socially awkward person who tends to require a long amount of time to make a solid friendship. That has not been the case recently though. I didn’t realize how nervous I was about making friends in college until I made one, and felt relieved. I was so afraid that no one would…

Getting My Hopes Up

Everything is set. We are planning our drive across the country, and all the details are falling into place. Two of my good friends have been looking at PLNU for a while now, and one of them has even been to the campus a few times. If all goes as we want it to, they…

Finding the Balance

Today my coaches informed my fellow teammates and me that our practices would no longer be the way they have been. When they said this, I whispered “it’s going to be like boot camp” and one of my coaches heard me. She smirked and said “exactly.” She started describing what our new practices would look…

The Crappy Zone

I’ve played softball since I was 6 years old. First, it was rec, then I played travel, and now I am playing on our high school team. Recently I have started to feel like I’m stuck in the crappy zone and have been for awhile. I know I can get better, and I do in…

The End in Sight

I’m starting to see the end. It is so near. Since freshman year back when I didn’t even live in the US, I have been looking forward to graduation day. It went by incredibly slow, and I thought it would never end. But now it’s almost here, and I don’t know where the time went. I…

What Is Going ON?

So I have decided. I will be attending PLNU in the fall of 2017. And until a few days ago I didn’t have a single doubt. But then… something someone said made me realize that I’m going to miss SC more than I ever realized. It was just a simple statement that made me question…

The Results are In…

I left off my last post minutes before I checked my mail. I got in! A few days ago I go I opened the mailbox to find a big envelope inside. Yes, the big one. Not the little envelope with the sorry letter inside, it was the big one, that had the acceptance packet. I…

Today I Know my Future

In approximately 1 hour, I will know where I am going to college. Last Thursday Point Loma sent out their decision letters. Each member of my family continues to check the mailbox even when we know it won’t be there. Yesterday, Sunday, I got home from work and my mom told me that she had…
