Senior Year

Dear senior year-

you chewed me up and spit me out in the best and worst ways.

you gave me the opportunity to come back to a program that would inevitably be my saving grace. with people who care, and a teacher that wills me to succeed.

you confirmed my worst fears, and left me up to my own devices to truly find myself.

you led me to some of the most genuine people I’ve ever met, giving me nights I wish I could relive again and again.

you gave me pillowcase day, football games, homecoming, prom, senior breakfast, and graduation around the corner.

you gave me my 18th year of life-one that will catapult me into the rest of my human experience.

you gave me one last volleyball season ever, and a senior night that made me cry the hardest.

you gave me the honor of being a leader-a captain, historian, vice president, and synthesizer of memories.

you gave me music- Ed Sheeran, Niall Horan, Hillsong-with some pretty amazing people.

you gave me the chance to start off 2019 with my youth group family, grounding me within the mosaic that is my life.

you handed me my hardest semester of classes yet, which outlined my success in future career endeavors.

you led me to an acceptance to my dream school, where I will pour out my heart and shape myself into the person I’m truly meant to be.

you’re letting me graduate from two different schools, with two different degrees. and that’s pretty darn cool.

you’ve blessed me with sunsets, beach drives, and bittersweet endings.

the chance to move on and begin the beginning of my life.

and oh how I’m thankful for that.

Hello! My name is Emma, and I am pleased to welcome you to my blog, established in June of 2016 (which was a journey in itself). This blog has been the product of creativity, love, and countless hours designing and redesigning. A little about me: I am a graduated senior, coming from my community college's Early College Program, which entailed me receiving my AA degree after I graduated high school! In my high school career, I had been Captain for four years on the girl's JV and varsity volleyball team, became Vice President of our chapter of Technology Student Association, Historian of both the National Honor Society and Science National Honor Society, and received Gold and Silver Keys for the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards for my photography. Outside of school, I was involved in my local youth groups for seven years (four mission trips down!), had the opportunity to travel to Washington, DC to attend the Washington Journalism and Media conference, and work at an independent living elderly home. In February 2019, I got accepted to the University of Florida (Go Gators!), and look forward to spending my next four years learning about business and journalism. I play guitar, write, and take/edit pictures in my free time, and absolutely love spending quality time with my friends and family. This is a place where I can talk about a variety of topics, from lifestyle, to faith, fashion, and personal subjects. What's in a name? That, my friends, is an easy answer. I have always been quite observant, and in recent years, especially within myself. Introspective means to be "inward-looking," and for me, that's just the simple truth. For this blog, it allows you a glimpse into everything and anything I come across, whether it be about life, fashion, or travel! This is the place to feel included. Caio! -Em
