Summer has been quite the experience! I have spent the last two and a half months working at the local grocery store and getting ready for the big move! In addition, to working, I took the last class required for my degree... and passed! So I am officially finished! I cannot believe it!
After an incredibly amazing five year journey to New Mexico, I will cross the state line and head back to my home state. (And I am so excited to be back in the Lone Star State!) Looking back, I cannot believe what all has happened in the last five years: I moved 10 hours away from home, I began and finished a degree, I worked as an RA, I helped start a chapter of Phi Mu Alpha, I became a fraternity president for two years, I made and lost some great friends, I traveled all over New Mexico, to New York , to Washington, D.C., I performed in a lot of great places, I sang a lot of notes, I conducted the local community orchestra, I led rehearsals and sectionals and conducted at one of the concerts, I had a recital... so much! SO MUCH! I've had so much support and I am so grateful for all of the people who have helped get me to where I am. So as I continue to the next leg of my journey, I am reminiscent and so appreciative of all of the good (and bad!) experiences thus far.
So as the summer closes, and a new school year begins, I happy that I am registered for classes, have all of my financial aid business taken care of, and I've even started packing... and I am usually a procrastinator (I work well under pressure). So now, the goal is to find a place to live... as soon as that's solidified, I will only have to finish packing and actually move. I am excited to work with the choirs at West Texas A&M--and to study with Dr. Pullen. There is a lot to do in the next few weeks... and before
