Good Lord I love summertime.

"It's a smile, it's a kiss, it's a sip of wine it's the summertime" <3

Friends, food, and fun.  Can't beat it.

"You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough. Be smart, study, make dumb mistakes, move on, have fun, make lasting friendships, but most of all, love. Love life, love your mistakes for what they teach you, love others, and just... love you."

Officially a college gradutate!  How crazy.  3 years and now on to the next phase.  But, I'm blessed and get 4 more years in Blacksburg.  I'm more than a little excited to move on to vet school and see all the opportunities this new adventures life has for me.   And I can't wait to meet new people!  Gotta love new friends, always exciting.

Paz y bien.

Love life, it's too short not to.

Final push! Well shove really

Almost done!  2 more finals and I'm finished my undergraduate career at Virginia Tech.  Kinda crazy to think about.  It had truly been an incredible 3 years.  It's amazing to think how much I have learned and grown in such a short amount of time.  I am a completely different person today than I was when I stepped on campus August 19th, 2009.  And I honestly feel like most of my growth has been for good.  I know myself so much better than I did back then.  I have convictions, depth and inspiration.  My passions have only grown stronger and I am so excited for my future.

Vet school here I come.

"keep calm and study on"

Too often we don't realize what we have until it's gone. Too often we're too stubborn to say, 'Sorry, I was wrong.' Too often it seems we hurt the ones closest to our hearts, and we let the most foolish things tear us apart.
