Summertime Sadness..?

Its that time of year again… yes, yes… almost everyone under the age of 22 understands… summer is ending and school is beginning. “NoooOoooOOooooo I don’t want to return to school!” is what most of you scream and shout at the top of your lungs. I, on the other hand, scream and shout “C L E M S O N, T I G E RRRRRR S!” You blood pressure just rose (out of excitement or because you’re a gamecock fan), am I right?! 

I don’t know about y’all but I am SO excited for school to start back! About the only thing I am sad about summer ending is not being able to sleep in (which this summer has only allotted me about 2 weeks total to sleep in anyways— so I’m not used to it). I have never been so excited to begin a new chapter in my life.. EVER! New home, new sights, new people, new adventures, and just a new life. 

College will be an experience where I will reap what I sow. And I will plant some sweet sweet seeds.

I have been having the time of my life here in Clemson over the summer. I really couldn’t ask for a better 5 weeks, not only in relation to my research but also in relation to the people I’ve met and the friendships I’ve formed. Some of these people, I know, will be some of my best friends in college (I can already tell).

Based on past experiences, I don’t really like to let people get very close to me because I get attached to people way too easily. I don’t want to hurt them, but I also don’t want myself to be hurt either. So I’m stuck at this dilemma of risking myself to be hurt later, or taking the risk and it all work out in the end…. I know regardless of what I do, everything will work itself out according to God’s plan, but I would rather avoid some heartache if I can. I just really don’t know what I should do in this situation where my mind tells me one thing but my heart tells me another. What do you do?

New Beginnings… Everywhere!

Right now, I am about 3 weeks away from moving to Clemson for summer research. I have mixed emotions about leaving my family and friends early, but I am excited to make new ones! On top of this, my family is moving into my grandmothers house in the country… So lots of boxes and packing for us! I am so excited to see what the future holds. I am nervous, but I know that if I set my mind to goals— I will succeed.
