Things I've Discovered My Freshman Year Of College | It Goes By So Quickly

This one is a bit ironic. People tell you over and over how fast the college years will go by but until a year is nearly over you may not believe them! This year has absolutely flown by, yes there were some really long and rough weeks but there is no way this can be my last friday as a freshman. I can't have just finished one of my three exams. This should not be my last weekend here with my friends. No way can it be over.

I guess as cliche as it sounds, time really does fly when you are having fun. Granted, writing papers and studying aren't exactly number one on my list of how to have fun but thinking about packing my bags and heading home is unfathomable. 

I am excited to be back at home for a little bit. I miss my mom, dad, and brother but leaving Furman for 3 1/2 months is crazy. Can my friends just come home with me? Fortunately I have some plans to see the cool kids I met here over the summer but I can't get over the fact that this year is nearly over. How is the best question I have for it!

Fortunately, a big group of my friends here are going for ice cream tonight and my pledge class is having a big pledge class picnic on Sunday so at least the memories aren't all the way over!

Move in day feels like yesterday but the memories from then to now are absolutely endless!
I couldn't have been luckier with how great this year has been and I wish I could tack a couple of workless weeks onto this school year!

Clearly we weren't close at this point…literally, little did we know how that would change.

And people think they have a prettier campus? I will always disagree!

Clearly I have had the best roommate experience possible. So thankful for my friendship with my roommate and so glad that so many majority of my memories include Nell!!

Joining KD has been such a blast as well!

My first time being incredibly spontaneous, loved every minute of my day trip to Athens!

Thanks for being a part of these and countless other memories!
Stay tuned next week for a road trip home playlist that would be playing if I made a slideshow of my freshman year! (#sentimental)

  4. Your pictures are adorable! looks like you had an awesome freshman year! I'm suffering through finals right now, so I'm beyond jealous that you are done!

  5. I absolutely agree with this statement! I'm just about to graduate and honestly these last three years have gone by so incredibly fast - first year actually felt the longest and after that the years felt like they were just a split second long! Make the most of every moment and make as many memories as you can for every little thing that happens!
