life after unc

Leave a comment

so…i haven’t written in forever…but i’ll come with some quick updates. i GRADUATED from UNC. my graduation weekend was definitely a blessing. it was great to be surrounded by family and friends to celebrate the great occasion. i’m definitely proud of myself for what i have accomplished and i’m looking forward to the next step in life- UGA!

following graduation, i set off on a 7 day cruise with two of my favoritest gals: nicole and conitras. we went to key west, belize, cozumel, and progreso…and it was definitely one of the most amazing experiences of my life. everywhere we went was so beautiful. the food was great, the drinks were great…i feel blessed to have been able to travel like that…AND i’m looking forward to the next cruise.

now my life is filled with preparations for grad school…trying to find a place to stay, finding a job, that sort of thing. it’s crazy to be on campus working with minority affairs and doing project uplift, but to realize that i’m not a student anymore. i love carolina…and i never thought i’d quote petey pablo BUT…”everybody knows carolina’s my home; this is my heart, baby, this is my soul…”.

so the post-grad life is cool…actually a little more relaxing in some ways…and a little more stressful in others. i’m enjoying every bit of it, though. what is kinda sad though…is that i’m really not around my friends. we’re all split up and handling business in different places. yet and still, i’m grateful that god saw fit to put us together and i know that we’ll be reunited when the time is right. on another note, i’m also grateful for the time that i have alone…allows me to get my thoughts together and to prepare myself for the next phase. god is gonna take me all the way to the top…and i can’t wait!

peace and blessings
