The first half of 2011 was honestly the worst months of my life. I have never been so unhappy with myself and the way my life was going. I literally just sat in my room, and only left when I had to go to classes. I was just a shell of myself, and I was miserable. I was making C-’s in my classes. I cried myself to sleep nearly every night. I didn’t enjoy life anymore. However, when I hit bottom this summer, I knew I had to change something. I decided that happiness can only come from inside myself, and that it was time to create some luck. I began seeking opportunities- and found them. I began my internship with the athletics department. I joined an amazing sorority filled with some of the most wonderful girls I have ever met. I started going to church. I interviewed to be an orientation leader, and was chosen from over 250 applicants. I decided I wanted to go to grad school. I made dean’s list this semester. I have made so many great friends that I know will long outlast college. I have been blessed with so many opportunities that I know will help me succeed no matter what path I take. When I began college, I had a plan in my head, and I expected everything to go exactly according to that plan. Pretty much nothing has worked out how I intended it to, but I know that every single thing that has happened is all part of God’s plan, and is ultimately for the better. I cannot wait to see what 2012 has in store, and I hope that each and every single one of my followers has many blessings awaiting them.
