The Time of Our Lives

(Listen to this to set the mood ;) )

With all of my excitement surrounding my Asian travels, I realized that I never took the time to share some photos from my undergraduate graduation. Not that it's an important day in my life or anything...pshhh!

Graduation weekend is a bit of a blur to be perfectly honest. While it has been a couple of months ago already, it felt like a blur at the time as well. It's not just my memory deceiving me.

Entering college, I was nervous, but I'm the kind of person who puts on a tough face and tries to not let others know when something scares me. However, my life changed in the best way possible when two smiling girls asked if they could sit by a couple other girls and myself  at the Welcome Picnic. Four years later ....I feel so blessed to not only have been able to call these girls my best friends, but also my roommates. 




While we may be heading down different paths and going our separate ways, I am confident that our friendship will extend beyond our time at South Dakota State University. In fact, we are continuing our second annual girls weekend tradition next week. I am counting the days seconds.

  1. That's so cool that you met friends during your very first days at college and your friendship has lasted through the years! I happened to meet my best friend (Angel) on my very first day of college--though he wasn't that welcoming then. haha! Happy graduation!! Seriously, that's big. You should be very proud of yourself!

    1. Thank you, Rachel! It was such an exciting day, though it didn't feel as big as it should have since I am going to grad school the next two years!

    1. Thanks, Rach! It makes me a little nervous to be so far away from my college friends next year, but it is especially comforting to hear people like yourself say they still are in touch with their college friends! :)
