These pictures don’t even begin to explain the amazing memories and experiences I’m leaving KU with. I made some of my strongest bonds and lifetime friendships. Thank you KU for giving me two years of my life that I will forever cherish. I’ll be back to visit very soon! @mikkipaige @slevine92 @meanarmeen @suzerrrs @kloulouf
today I took my final for my chemistry class. It was bittersweet. I made some amazing friends in that class and absolutely loved my professor. I don’t think I’ve ever had a professor as patient and understanding as Barry Herron. I came into my chemistry class dreading it, I was never a chemistry person. He actually made me like chemistry, and I think that’s a very powerful thing to accomplish. I had dinner with my lab group tonight to say our goodbyes. We were definitely an interesting group- you had me, Ann who was a sweet, adorable 40 year old, Robin who was an eccentric 45 year old, and Tim who was a funny 18 year old. The crazy thing was we all got along so well, I literally could not tell the difference in our ages, I just viewed them as friends. The main thing that Ann told me today that stood out and really made me look at things in perspective was that “I have so much time to do so much”. She has her bachelor’s and has worked so many jobs that she loved but just came back to school to try something new. Looking at these two women who have done so much with their lives so far and are still coming back to school to continue their education amazed me. I have major freak outs throughout the year about “wasting” my time and not knowing exactly what I want to do, but what we all need to take in consideration is that we have time. We’re young and there’s so many opportunities just waiting for us and it’s okay to take your time and try different things- you’ll eventually be okay and find your way.
