“Today, Goodbye. Tomorrow, Good Luck. Forever, Go Blue”
It was 05/02/2014 when I walked into the Michigan Big House one last time as an undergrad student. Thinking back to what happened this past four years, I’ve learned so much not just from all the college courses I took but life in general.
To be honest, I don’t even know how I graduated on time. I remember when I first walked into the Michigan campus thinking that this will be the place when all the magic happens, when I become a successful young woman, when I meet all the amazing people who will be my lifelong friends or business buddies. Maybe some of them are true…I did make a lot of amazing friends and overcomes many challenges, but what I have planned did not go as smoothly as I thought.
Sometimes, unexpected/bad things happen…that take your strength away blindfolding you from everything around you. Even though it might take years for me to heal, at the end of the day, I’m happy that I have all these people around me who will always be there for me when I need them. I did not become a well-rounded young lady with a high-paid consulting job in a well-known bank as I anticipated, nor an influential individual who is ready to make big changes to the community. But I do know that I can always rely on my families and friends & will always strive to live life the fullest when I can without being afraid to try anything.
I don’t know what’s going to happen in the future, but I will forever carry what I’ve learned from you, and become someone who doesn’t like to follow “the” plan but to always looking for something adventurous, a secret path perhaps, bcause isn’t that what life is about? To leave no regret and to be happy…
Thanks for the amazing 4 years Michigan. Even though it is still unknown where future will take me, I am excited for what’s ahead of me, good or bad. I know I’ve became a stronger person overall. While I never stop questioning myself if I’ve changed for better or worse, I can never ask for another 4 year experience as unique as the “Michigan experience”
