Freshman Year

Coming to its End

This will be my last official blog according to the syllabus I was given at the beginning of the semester in my agriculture public relations class, however I am still undecided whether or not I will continue to blog on my own about my life and whatever else I choose.

So for this blog I decided that it would take entirely too long to sum up what this year of my life has meant to me, therefore I am just going to talk about three F’s, family, friends, and future.

My Family

My Family

There has been no other experience quite like leaving for college that has opened my eyes to how important my family is to me. With all the time away from home I began to realize how amazing my home really is. My home is where my mom and dad are, where my sisters are, where my memories are and where I became who I am today. This home was created by the two most amazing people I have ever had the privilege of being a daughter to, my parents. Here three hours away from them, I have had to learn to take care of myself. The only reason I was able to come into college with big ideas and a plan I wanted to follow was because my parents taught me how. And my sisters! Who would have thought that I have come to miss seeing their beautiful faces everyday, and who would have thought they had given me the strength to go out on my own. But they did and I know now that there isn’t anyone else in this world that I could trust and depend on to be there when I need those two girls most.

My Friends

I have met sooooooo many people here at MSU! But there are some of those that mean the world to me and I couldn’t have survived this first year without. The School of Agriculture brought so many new faces to me that shared my passion and right from the get go we had a connection. I am so glad to have me them and I know that when the summer is over we will all be able to pick right back up from where we left off. My sorority sisters! What can I say about them except that I am so proud to be a part of such a unique, smart, fun, caring group of women! We laughed together and cried together, and already I am so excited to my into the sorority house next semester. And I can’t forget my dorm buddies, for lack of a better way to describe them. They ROCK. Late night dinners and ice cream parties, along with stories of missing home and wanting to grow up. Living on campus, in a dorm was the best decision ever. Because of this I got to know girls that are completely different in myself, who are in different majors, clubs, and organizations. This where you learn the most about all the opportunities available because literally everyone is involved in something!

Couldn’t Forget Him…

My boyfriend of three years and three months, Tanner. He has been there through every struggle and has always managed to make me happy during every hard time. I couldn’t have achieved what I have without him, he is my rock!



And Finally My Future 

This summer I will be moving back home and I will be working as an intern at a local vineyard and winery. I am very excited to be getting started with my career goals and I can not wait to see what next fall brings me!

    Thank you for finding my Journal…of course I had to check out your blog. It’s great, you write well and post terrific pictures. When you go away to college, you really learn to appreciate home and family. It happened with our daughters too. I hope you continue to post when you have time. Good job.
