Class of 2017

Congratulations Class of 2017 graduates! We did it! On May 20, I graduated from Cal State Los Angeles. For me, graduating is a bittersweet moment. I am happy to be done with tests, essays, finals week stress, but at the same time, I know I will miss the school environment. It might make me sound like a nerd, but I really enjoyed going to school and learning, especially about history, which is what I got my bachelor’s degree in.

I started off my college career by going to a community college first. I graduated from Rio Hondo back in 2012. It took me a while because I had trouble passing a math class and I took a semester off school. It may have taken me a little longer than other people, but I am happy I finally finished and got my degree.
After going to school for 20+ years, it will be very strange to not have to worry about picking out my classes or the first day of school butterflies I always got whether I was in middle school or college.

My biggest regret is working while going to school. I feel like I missed out on so much. I know some people need to work in order to support themselves while going to school, but I feel like it wasn’t the right thing for me. If I hadn’t been working, I would’ve joined more things and participated in more school activities. One thing I did while at Rio Hondo was write for the school newspaper. I loved it. That is definitely something I wish I could have done while at Cal State LA. I would also have tried out for sports while at Cal State LA.

Now that my college career is over, it is time to start looking for a real job. I’m definitely nervous about that. I know that it will not be easy.

Looking Back on 2012

Based on some of my posts from the last few months (specifically the ones from November and december), it might seem like 2012 was a horrible year for me, but that’s not true at all! Well, it ended horribly, but the first 9 months of 2012 were pretty good!

One great thing that happened to me was that after almost 4 years, I finally got my braces taken off! Well, it was more like 3 years and 10 months to be exact. I got my braces taken in January, a few weeks before my 21st birthday. I was so happy! It took me a while to get used to it.

Some other good things that happened- I finally graduated and got my AA. Not much, but I’m a step closer to get my bachelor’s degree 🙂 I also got my first job ever! I’m still there, surprisingly lol It’s been 5 months and I’ve met some pretty cool people, and one, well, person who wasn’t so nice. But I think I’ve written enough about that person tbh

I was a LA Galaxy STH and went to so many games. I also went to see USMNT in Arizona, as well as LA Galaxy in Portland. Real Madrid and Tottenham Spurs came to LA and played against LA Galaxy at HDC (Home Depot Center).

For the most part, 2012 was a good year for me. I think November and December were really bad months, because of that person and everything that happened, well more like half of November. But I’m not going to say that 2012 was awful just that one month and a half.

I’m hoping 2013 is much better!
