First School Picture (kindergarten 1990)
I've been going to college since 2003. Every summer/fall semester I've been enrolled and every winter semester I've been out in California or Washington earning some money. I have not once changed my major of Elementary Education, but I took enough random classes to keep me here an extra year. I even traveled to Europe for a month and had the time of my life. I've lived in Barnes Hall, Birchwood II, Brookside Village, and Bristol Manor. I've taken over 140 credits, so even if I wasn't actually graduating they'd be kicking me out of school. I've made so many good friends I can't begin to count. And most importantly, I've experienced single-hood to it's fullest...having some of the best times of my life...mostly all while in Rexburg, Idaho...go figure. I'm gonna really miss this place, a "bubble" that has been a safety net for a short period of my life. Going to a church/private school has enriched my life by strengthening what I believe in and aquainting me with professors and friends that build me up. My last final was taken, my books are returned ($145), cap and gown picked up, parents are driving right now to meet me for graduation I'm seeing the light of what had seemed like a long tunnel. Ahead of me is Salt Lake City, Utah where I will be student teaching in a 1st grade classroom. What's next after that, I don't know. The dark mysterious looming future of my life. Maybe it's just another tunnel, but for the first time I get to decide where that tunnel goes.
