Making the Right Choice

Senior year has been nothing shy of anxiety, excitement, and uncertainty. While college apps were daunting, they weren't impossible, and I ended up only applying to three schools. I genuinely could see myself at all three I applied to, struggling to figure out which was best for me and my path. These past few months I've been battling the idea of making the right choice, constantly questioning my decision for the next four very important years of my life. There have been times where I know in my heart a particular school is where I should be, but I found at other times I was really unsure of what I truly wanted. This mix of emotions really put a toll on my mindset first semester, but didn't hinder me from acknowledging what would make me happy. While I have yet to announce where I'm headed next year, I can say that I have committed to a school that felt like home the moment I stepped on campus. It felt too good to be true, almost as if the school was made for me. Aside from being the "perfect fit," I can't help but think: what if it isn't? What if it's not what I've anticipated? What if I'm making the wrong choice? I've realized through this process that questions like these are inevitable and life consist of difficult decisions as such. I can't be afraid to make the wrong decision because mistakes are what make us who we are. I realize that where I end up is where I am supposed to be, and my happiness will be what I make of it. 

This has been one crazy journey, but I've learned more than I ever thought possible.
Look out for my college announcement on the blog next week!
