WHAT. THE. HECK.

How was that one year ago today? I swear it was only this morning I was getting ready to go to my first prom. That week was one of the funnest, craziest, exciting, nerve-wrecking, exhausting, thrilling, and emotionally draining week of my life.

I LOVED High School. It changed my life, or more like sculpted it to what I want it to be. The memories, connections, experiences, and friends that were made are priceless to me, and worth every blood, sweat, and tear. Mostly tears.

These pictures are some of my favorite pictures of all time. It was such a great day!

I miss these kids, this town, my family, and the feeling of normalcy. I can’t wait to go back for the summer and have part of my childhood back!

I remember sitting in my seat with my cap and gown in my hand listening to my best friends’ speak about the future and where it would take us. I think mine has turned out even better than I could have dreamt in one year.

First off- who knew that I would be spending my one year mark in the freaking Alps. I mean I have most definitely dreamt about an experience like this since I was breathing, but not now and not like this, as an Art Major. That was definitely never part of any of my plans.

Second- I knew I was going to love being an Aggie, but I didn’t think it was going to be this incredible!

Third- I never thought I could get find such fantastic people as I did in high school. However, I became obsessed with a group of girls I like to call my Bestie Roomies. They’ve surpassed anything I’ve ever known.

Fourth- I had no idea how infatuated I could be with a group of people. But seriously. These kids, this program, this school, this community, and their inspiring love has taught me more than I can say. Being an Ambassador is still unreal to me, and this program still amazes me everyday. They won me over from day 1.

Looking back, my life has been so incredibly blessed in more ways than I know. Year One has been incredible, but I can’t wait to see what Year Two brings.

Once a Wildcat. Always a Wildcat.
