The highlight of what has been a good third year, so far, has been getting my Aggie ring. Yup, that is right! I BTHO 90 hours, and I still cannot seem to understand how close I am to finishing college.
The Aggie Ring Ceremony was everything I heard it was, a moment full of pride. My brother was the person designated to put on my ring, and it was the best moment of 2018 yet.
My brother was chosen because he has been my No. 1 supporter of me and the travel required because of living eight hours away from home to get a great education. (He also was a Longhorn fan, so I had to show him a true Aggie tradition).
Not only that, but I also got to show my family Kyle Field and take pictures with my ring in the grand 12th Man Stadium.
It was very exciting to see how many people showed up from all over to help me celebrate my big day. I was excited for my ring, but I was in awe with the huge support system I have here at A&M and back home.
I am truly blessed as a student and individual with the life given to me. If my third year has been this great, I can’t wait to experience the rest of it.
What an amazing winter break I had! Because I live eight hours away, I had been loning to see my mom and dad, so I really enjoyed being with my family for a whole month, cuddling with the family cat, and catching up on bunch of Netflix series. My family and I also got to travel and make some new memories; it was great to be close to them and catch up with the lives of my older friends. I was saddened to have to leave them, but they are never too far for a phone call.
On the bright side, I got a new cat named Moose! He is now living with me in College Station, and he is just purrrrfect. He loves to cuddle, eat, and play, when he is not sleeping. What a life he has!
While all good things must come to an end, the start to the semester has interesting because of the Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday and an extra day to relax due to cold weather. I was expecting some snow, but a girl can only wish. After that interruption, as I’m getting back into a routine, I’ve decided to try something new—Zumba! Let me tell you, it was a lot harder than I thought. Who knew that dancing could be such a workout? But it’s also very fun, something I believe I am going to enjoy with my busy schedule.
I have high hopes for this semester, as I do every semester, but the homework is going to be another story. I hope everyone’s semester started well and that you really love your schedules. Gig’em, Ags!
