I can capture the essence of my last four years in three simple words: sad, challenging, and happy. As one would expect, these three feelings manifested themselves chronologically, and at times somatically-marked by their own songs, relationships, and TV-shows. I changed. At the hands of sudden conflicts, challenging group projects, unexpected rejections and surprising acceptances, I grew. I improved, and I made it. I created some of the most powerful friendships, ones where, to this day, I wonder how it is possible that two people can value such similar principles, and understand each other so well. I learned some of the most important lessons, lessons about self-reflection, saying sorry, and making sacrifices to follow our hearts. I’m grateful that I carved out my own path, said no when necessary, and made my own decisions, even if I still have more to learn. I do have more to learn.
Four years later, and I am happy. But I am terrified. Again."
