Another year of school has come and gone and I am way too much in touch with my emotional side. It is all so bittersweet. All of my life I have been waiting for this time in my life, here it is, and it’s not as fulfilling as I thought it would be right here in this very moment. But, looking back, it was everything I wanted and more. I would not trade the memories I made for anything in the world. All of the laughs and the smiles, I will hold close to me forever. This year I have gained so much. I have been blessed enough to gain knowledge, amazing friendships, and memories that I will never forget. This past year was the single best year of my life. Being loved unconditionally by amazing friends truly makes a difference in happiness and real, pure, genuine joy. Once you are in a moment, you will never get that moment back which makes me entirely too sad and nostalgic, but this insight has also taught me to live in the moment. Take it as it comes and just enjoy it while you can, because once you get it, there is no getting it back.
