It has been a few months since I’ve sat down and took the time to think about who I am and who I’m becoming. I get overwhelmed at the idea of my future and having some type of “plan.” I sit here, working a full-time schedule (split between my two jobs), balancing friends and family, spending time on my blog, just wishing it could all be easier.
This post is an exciting one because I graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst! The feeling of having your face on a huge screen as you step on stage to shake the Dean’s hand was like no other. It was two full-days of love and happiness shared with friends and family. I’m filled with anticipation for the next chapter and also sad to close this one.
UMass was the place I called home for four years. Unpacking my bags as a freshman was daunting. My heart raced as I navigated my way around campus for the first time. Saying “hi” to strangers in hopes that they too needed a friend in class was all new to me. Some days were tough and I didn’t want to go out and meet new people, or go to class, but these tasks got easier day by day. As each year passed, I got more and more comfortable with being at school and with myself. UMass helped me grow into the person I am today, and I couldn’t be more lucky. I learned how to manage my time more wisely, be more social and follow my heart when making decisions. I also learned to always be kind, to understand that everything does not always works out how I want it to, and that I will always solve my problems.
I met a great group of lifelong friends while I was at school, while also growing friendships with friends from home. These friends mean the world to me. They’ve seen me at my worst and also at my best. We always know how to make each other smile when we’re down, and cheer us on when we’re thriving. I could not have done it without these friends – they made my college experience the absolute best!
My college experience was more than I could ask for. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Natural Resources Conservation with a focus in Environmental Conservation and a minor in Math. I am so excited to see where this next chapter in my life takes me!
Thanks for reading!
Happy Thursday everyone!
Today I’m sharing my morning routine. I enjoy taking some time out of my morning to take care of my skin, do my makeup, and fuel my body with a great breakfast!
My blog is my pride and joy. I remind myself constantly of how proud I am for all that I’ve done over the past two years of blogging. There were many lessons to be learned through this journey and today I’m sharing some of my tips! 🌞
I can’t believe it – I started Beyond This Fence a little over two years ago! Time flies when you’re doing what you’re passionate about 💛
I can’t believe this was my last spring break as a college student! I saw lots of family over the past week and all I could talk about was how fast time was flying.
Alarm goes off at 6:30am. I roll over, reach for my phone, scroll through social media, check some emails, and finally get myself out of bed. I head downstairs for breakfast. I get the pot of coffee brewing and whip up an easy breakfast. Breakfasts will vary on what time I wake up in the morning. I’ll eat cereal or toast with peanut butter and banana on early mornings or I’ll make eggs and toast on my later mornings. Today I ate cereal and a banana with peanut butter! You can never go wrong with peanut butter.
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
