It should be about appreciating all of the things and people who mean the most to you. Being that I am in a relationship with my 18-credit semester right now, here are the things that I love and will be appreciating next week:
- My faith: God always comes first in my book. My faith is the only thing that keeps me sane at times and I honestly don’t know where I would be without it.
- My family: We may argue a lot, but I can’t help but love them. They are not afraid to speak their minds, which either makes me hate them at that moment or love them even more. Mom and Dad, thank you for always being there for me, no matter how crazy I drive you. Patrick and Delaney, you two may not be the siblings of the year, but I am proud to be your older sister. Love you guys!
- My girl friends: I’ve known some of them since before preschool and met others just last year. When I need advice, I go to them. When my dad was sick, one of my friends drove from Central for the weekend just to see how I was doing. Sometimes laughter, movies and junk food are all you need to smile. Every time we are together, we just laugh until it hurts. They are always there for me and I will always be there for them. I am so blessed to have them in my life.
- My guy friends: What can I say about my guy friends? Just that they’re awesome! I find it quite amazing and interesting how one minute they can be total gentlemen and the next they are totally goofy without a care in the world. I don’t know how they put up with me sometimes, but I am so glad that they do. Here is an example. Thank you, Curtis, for letting Veronica and me have our Valentine’s Day soiree in The VN office. I am so blessed to have them in my life as well.
- UDM: If you asked me two years ago where I wanted to go to school, I would have said, “Anywhere as far away from Grosse Pointe as possible.” Today, I am very happy where I am. I love UDM and all it has to offer. I have made many memories and lifelong friends in less than two years. I especially love my professors. I can’t wait to see what else my academic career here has in store. Read more..
