25 Days + A Giveaway

Dear Alissa, 
Two years ago you were struggling through your first year at KU. You were crying every single night, struggling to understand your classes and had the overwhelming feeling of drowning and not knowing how to get out of the rut. You were barely passing your classes and didn’t understand how you weren’t getting straight A’s like you did at your junior college. You didn’t think it could get better; you just wanted to close your eyes and somehow skip to the end. 

I’m here to tell you that two years later, you are at the end. You have 25 days left of your undergraduate career. Although these 25 days seem like a whole two years away and you have no idea how you are going to get everything done that needs to get done but you will. Look back to where you were two years ago and think about how much you have gone through to get you to this point. Looking back two years I realize that it has felt like a blink of an eye ago that I was sitting on the bed,rocking myself back and forth wondering how I would finish college. You did it by stopping crying, deciding what you wanted for yourself and going after it.

This senior year has been a big old ball of emotions but more than anything it’s been a reminder of how far I’ve come. I wish I could go back and tell my sobbing 21-year old self that not only will things get better but you will make amazing friends, have incredible opportunities, have a boss and coworkers who feel like family and the confidence to be who you are. 

25 days, 2 presentations, 1 10-page research paper, 1 test and 2 quizzes away from graduating and finishing this phase. This incredible phase of my life where I became who I wanted to me and am not ashamed. So enjoy these last 25 days, the little victories, the sleepless nights, everything. Think about how life has changed and realize that despite the grumbling, crying and tiredness, these next 25 days will be amazing. 


Linking up for Funday Monday also! 


So..speaking of 2 years ago, it’s was 2 year ago that I started the blog. Last week’s giveaway was a $75 Sephora gift card and this week it’s an amazing pampering kit from Erin Condren.
