The first week of my junior year of college is officially over, which I guess also means that summer is officially over. This summer had so many ups and downs, but there were a million moments that made me happy that I want to share with you!
The summer began with the end of the school year, and my older sister’s graduation from college. She did it in 3 years and graduated summa cum laude with a million accomplishments under her belt.
After her graduation, my best friend Corban finally graduated from high school!
Back home, I bought my first car! Like officially totally mine with my name on it and everything!
Corban and I took a really fun weekend camping trip. We made hot dogs, canoed, and just had a lot of fun!
The rest of the summer was mostly a blur because I spent my time working as a camp counselor from 6am until 6pm every day. I had such an amazing time playing with and getting to know the kids. I’d go back to it in a heartbeat! Unfortunately, I wasn’t on my phone at camp, so I don’t have any good pictures!
My boyfriend and I broke up. Not exactly the most joyful moment, but it was really for the best. The joyful moment that came from it was how incredibly sweet and understanding my friends were to me.
I spent some time with sweet friends, and I got to know my friend Emma a lot better, which brought a lot of joy to my heart.
As soon as I moved out of my apartment (which was so, so, so sad), my family and I headed to Branson, Missouri for a family vacation. We met up with my aunt, uncle, cousin, and grandparents to stay in a lake resort!
Once we got back from vacation, we moved my little sister into college (which seems impossible).
My best friend, Megan, is spend the fall semester as a foreign exchange student in France. We’re all going to miss her so much, but I’m so excited for all the experiences she’s going to have.
And then finally… it was time for school to start. It’s my first year of nursing school, and after one week, I’ve already learned so much.
So, this summer has been an amazing time of joy. I’m going to share a few more moments of joy. Here’s to the past, which was wonderful, and the future, which will at least be new.
Thank you for being a part of my journey.
