Well, its here. With all the hoping, wishing, countdowns, anticipation, believing it would never happen — Summer 2012 has finally arrived. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am beyond thrilled. But also, it brings about a bittersweet end of an era.
I will never again take a science class, be a pharmacy major, or even so much as use a calculator whilst I am a college student at Ohio Northern University. Now this, is the happiest thing that has ever happened, because after two years, I finally get to do everything I could have possibly wanted to. I just wish it hadn’t taken so damn long for me to figure out what I wanted.
But this is just one of the many things that has ended as my time as an underclassman at ONU has dwindled away. Along with this, my big graduated, something I am infinitely proud of her for, my little decided to transfer, and although she will always be mine, she won’t be at school with me anymore, thus this ends the era of my immediate Delta Zeta family. Now yes, I have a network of fantastic sisters and close family, each of which I love with my whole heart, so that’s what makes it so bittersweet.
Aside from changing my major, my sophomore year of school brought about a lot of other firsts. I went to Canada for my first and second times, and had a blast both times. I formed friendships so strong that nothing can tear them apart, even stupid three month breaks that make me long for Friday nights in Ada. I started blogging. I learned a lot about who I was and who I wasn’t, and I think I truly am happy with where I am right now, although there is always room for improvement.
A lot of other things have happened — things I’m not going to talk about because, quite frankly, I don’t want to type out my life story. But anyways, here we are. At the beginning of Summer 2012, which I’m determined to make the best one yet, with the predominant theme of self improvement.
I’ve done pretty well so far. I’ve spent the majority of my time either at the gym or at work, and I must say. I’m excited to see what these three months have in store for me, and I really can’t wait to head back to ONU in the fall, completely the person I want to be.
So, here goes, y’all. Here’s to checking things off my bucket list, loving my life and self-improvement. Here’s to being happy with who I am, and becoming one hundred percent the person I want to be. Most importantly, here’s to Summer 2012!
