A New Chapter

2016 is a big year for me. This is the year that I will be completing high school and going to college. Its going to be  a new chapter for me. I am pleased to announce that  I will be going to the University of Central Florida. I will be a knight! I am happy with my decision. I realized that when God wants something for you he will make everything work out in accordance to his plan. UCF was definitely God’s will for me. It is only 1 hour away from my house. It is in Orlando. Yep, the city of Disney World, Universal Studios, and Sea World. I will be studying journalism. It is all so exciting for me. I am looking forward to a fresh start. Its important in life to get a change of setting every now and then. That’s why college is so crucial for me. I am most looking forward to the independence. I am a legal adult now, and living by myself (with a roommate) is a quintessential way to start my chapter into adulthood. I am also looking forward to making new friends. I love meeting new people and they say that you make your closest friends in college. Hopefully, that will happen for me. I also plan on immersing myself into various clubs and organizations. I want to join the African Student Association, maybe a theater club, and the gospel choir. I know that UCF offers a plethora of organizations (over 400) and I will probably join more than those three that I mentioned. Also, I hope you guys pray for me. I really want to have a good room mate. Plus, since high school didn’t prove good for romantic relationships, I’m definitely open for the possibility of dating. I know that there will definitely be a wide variety of people compared to my high school classmates. UCF has the second largest campus in the nation. So, there is such a great opportunity to build all sorts of relationships. When it comes to food, I will be getting a meal plan. Hopefully, there will be a wide variety of food for me to choose from. Who knows, maybe next year I’ll cook. Furthermore, I am thinking of potentially minoring in Spanish. I took 5 years of  Spanish. I am still contemplating this decision. However, I believe that being bilingual will be a good addition to add to my resume. On a side note, I have also begun to work. I currently work at Taco Bell. I know its fast food, and nothing really serious. Nonetheless, I am trying to save up as much money as possible for college. The whole process was somewhat stressful. Applying, SAT/ACTs/scholarship applications were all pretty dismal.I am so glad that I now have a clear idea of where I am going and what I’m going to do with my life. Its definitely a huge relief.

Continually, I will continue writing my book. I am currently on chapter 4. I will be writing chapter 5 some time soon. I don’t know how long the book will be. However, it is such a thrilling experience writing. I hope my book teaches a lesson. I want people to be able to connect to the characters and gain something from my book. I am still figuring out who will publish it. Despite this, as soon I find out the details of my publishing, I will let you all know. I’m going to end on this note. If you are ever feeling in a rut, just know that you too can start a new chapter. Try a new system of life. Try a new system of organization. Try applying for a new job. Its never too late to start over. Sometimes starting over is the best possible thing you can do for your life. Well that’s all I have for today. Thanks for reading.

With Love,
