Today I am closing one chapter & starting another. I am no longer a student at the University of Iowa. Such a bittersweet moment. One thing I would like people to know is I have not given on school, I have just given up on the University of Iowa. I haven’t given up on it completely, The University of Iowa was my home for the past two years . It is my home away from home. This is the first place I came after high school. It has showed me the real world & it was a learning of experience good & bad. I found & lost love. I have gained & lost friends. I got leadership experiences, I got job experience, I got to meet so much wonderful people, and take some interesting classes. Here I am now. Everything is about to change. I face tomorrow as I say goodbye to yesterday. A chapter ending but the story only just begun. The page is turning for everyone. So I’m moving on, letting go, holding on to tomorrow. I’ve always got the memories while I’m finding out who I’m gonna be. We might be apart but the university will be with me wherever I go. I always knew this day would come. I’d be standing one on one with my future in my hands. So many dreams so many plans. Always knew after the past two years. There’d be laughter, there’d be tears. But never thought that I’d walk away with so much joy but so much pain, and it’s so hard to say goodbye. But yesterday’s gone I gotta keep moving on. I’m so thankful for the moments so glad I got to know ya. The times that we had I’ll keep like a photograph. Hold you in my heart forever. I’ll always remember you. Another chapter in the book cant go back but you can look, and there we are on every page. Memories I’ll always save up ahead on the open doors. Who knows what I’m heading towards? I wish everyone love, I wish everyone luck. For you guys the world just opens up. But it’s so hard to say goodbye. Everyday that we had all the good all the bad. I’ll keep them here inside. All the times that we shared every place everywhere. You touched my life. Yeah one day we’ll look back we’ll smile and we’ll laugh. But right now we just cry. Cause it’s so hard to say goodbye. Crazy after I signed those papers, I was like what did I just do?! So light headed, and anxiety, barely catching my breathe, but right now it is the right decision. I will be here till Tuesday if anyone wants to hang out before I leave. Now excuse me while I go walk around campus crying and remembering all the good and bad.
