I got an email last week from my school’s Academic Advising department congratulating me for being halfway through my undergraduate career at UNC, and I had to stop and think about it for a minute — halfway through?? That feels impossible to me, and more than anything tells me to relish in it while it lasts. I’m also proud of myself (because college is hard, man!)
My sophomore year has been nothing short of incredible — I have met so many more awesome people this year to add on to the wonderful people I met last year. I joined a sorority and a small faith group, and I served as Public Relations Chair for the tap club I’m in, Carolina Tap Ensemble. I got to do so many cool things and I also got to learn a lot too (Hi Mom and Dad, I went to class, don’t worry!)
I also thought it was only fitting that I shared some highlights from every month this school year:
Highlights: Move-in, reuniting with friends, Fall Fest, Sunset Serenade, starting Fall classes!
Highlights: Ed Sheeran concert, getting a bid from Kappa Kappa Gamma, UNC football games, KKG New Member my-tie cocktail with pals
Highlights: Big/Little Reveal, Halloween 2017 (I went as Kuzco from The Emperor’s New Groove), Parents’ Weekend
Highlights: going to Asheville for a semiformal, getting to hang out with puppies (my heart was so happy) and getting initiated into Kappa
Highlight: awesome beach trip with my friends to Manteo, NC (the rest of this month while at school was spent studying for exams )
Highlights: celebrating my birthday with friends, getting to watch UNC basketball games at the Dean Dome and the SNOW DAY! (which resulted in a snowball video that I captured and tweeted, and it weirdly went viral, links below)
Highlights: beating DOOK and rushing Franklin Street, watching Jared and the Clef Hangers sing in Charlotte, Heartbreakers and tap rehearsals
Highlights: spring break with friends, Big/Little Reveal (this time I’m the big), initiating my little, Torrey, dinner outings
Highlights: C-Tap show, Formal, exploring Raleigh, LDOC
I am truly so thankful for everything this year has brought me and I can’t wait to do it all over again in August!
Happy Summer ☀️
