Realizing I only have 13 days left of school, 17 till graduation and 24 till I leave the place I’ve called home for the past four years is something I’ve been trying to ignore. I’ve made the most of my time here at UNCW whether it was on campus, at my job or on the beach; each memory holds a special place in my heart. I will always cherish living in the small town of Wrightsville Beach for the past two years. I have taken for granted that I live only across the street from the beach with some of the most wonderful girls I call my best friends, and only have 24 days left of this paradise.
Having this time come to an end is scary and exciting at the same time. I’m excited to start my next chapter in life and become apart of the real world ( I’ll probably regret saying this later). The only thing holding me back from being excited is that I have to leave all of friends after graduation. Living with six girls this past year and having all of my friends live on the same street has really spoiled me. Being able to walk down the street or even just down the hall to find someone to go grab Tower7 margaritas on a Thursday or to walk the loop is something I take for granted. These girls have helped me grow in my four years here at UNCW and I know that their friendships will last a lifetime and for that I’m thankful!
Graduation brings mixed emotions of sadness and happiness since these four years have flown by, it seems like yesterday I was walking the halls of Galloway. Through all the summer school classes, studying abroad and the many semesters spent in Leutze I would not change any of it for the memories I got from the professors, group objects and seeing the world. I want to thank the Communication Department for giving me the chances to allow myself to grow and learn and become the best version of myself. Also a big thank you to my parents for letting me go on this crazy adventure and supporting me the entire way! I will always be a Seahawk at heart and can’t wait to come back to visit!! Cheers to all the future Seahawks I hope you have the time of your life like I did! #FeelMyTeal #WingsUpForever
