This weekend was the ending point and the starting point of two major things in my life. I officially graduated from Fox Valley Technical College with a degree in Information Technology.
College was a great ride, with a lot of ups and downs. I met friends that I will keep in touch with for the rest of my life. It has changed me as a person in more ways than I could have ever imagined. It really took me to a new level coming from such a small town like Clintonville.
The New Journey Begins Monday
What makes this even more crazy is the fact that I have decided to fly out to Hawaii Monday and try and make a go at living there. Most of my friends said they could never do it which is why I am excited to give it a shot. I am the type of person that lives the go big or go home attitude. I always new I was going to accomplish some big things and this is a start.
It is going to be hard to say goodbye to everyone but thats part of life. Saying goodbye to my family is going to be the hardest part because I am so used to spending time with them and just hanging out. In college I was only about an hour from home, Hawaii…more like 5000 miles from home in the middle of the ocean.
It is going to be interesting, who knows how long I will be out there. The good thing is I am gong with a best friend so at least I will have someone I know with me. We do not have an apartment or jobs out there yet so things will need to happen fast. I feel pretty confident I can make it happen.
