The end is near.

WHAT. THE. HECK.

IT. IS MAY.

I GRADUATE IN THREE WEEKS.

THERE ARE 17 MORE DAYS OF SCHOOL LEFT.

Where did the time go?? I swear it was just September and I was at Beyonce’s Formation World Tour to celebrate my birthday. It was just October and I was at Chance the Rapper’s Coloring Book concert. It was just November when I visited New York for the first time and experienced what love at first sight felt like. It was just December and I was spending Christmas with my sister. It was just January when the world almost collapsed due to Donald Duck’s inauguration. It was just February and I was partying in my hometown for Super Bowl 51. It was just March when I spent my Spring Break in California with my mom. It was just April when I figured out where I will be spending the next four years of my life.

WHERE DID THE TIME GO?!?!!

I know that I was warned to enjoy senior year because it would go by fast but nothing could prepare me for the twister that was my senior year.

Yall, I went through it.

I experienced some of the happiest times to date and some of my lowest times. I was knocked down to my feet a couple of times, worked myself to complete exhaustion and had to go to the Emergency Room, and took SO MANY L’s.

Yet, I bounced back every time and I am still standing and in it to the very end. I have grown so much in these past 8 months that I feel that I am ready for anything and everything that college has to throw at me. My faith was tested in the most life-changing way and I am truly altered because of it.

I can see the end, I can see the finish line. I’m almost there.
