CSUF Class of 2017!

Hi all! ❤

School is ending soon for most and as each one of us gets closer and closer to the finish line, I am proud to say that I have finally made it. This past semester marked the last and final semester of my undergraduate year and I must say that I am excited to finally be done but I am hella scared to enter this time period of not knowing what is going to happen next. In this post, I will talking about my overall experiences with college and what I look forward to post-graduation 🙂

Now I have always been a studious student and have received good grades throughout my school career. As I got into college, I got super lazy and just didn’t put the same level of effort into it as I did before. Now that I have just graduated, I realized that I should have just put the extra effort into studying. I guess I was just so tired of putting effort into everything and not getting exact results that I gave up and just was okay with a C because it was still passing. But if there’s one thing I regret, it is getting the grades I got. I mean you’re paying for this tuition, so might as well get the most out of it.

With all the people I have met, there were only so many I actually stayed in contact with. I always wanted to join a sorority, but I ended up wanting to do it when I was the busiest. Although I wished to have joined and be a part of something, I did meet some cool people and got to network with many students in my field of study. College is the place to meet everyone and do everything you can. If you want to study abroad, do it. If you want to join a club, do it. If you don’t reach out for what you want, you’re most likely not going to get it. And that’s something I have realized after all these years in school. Only you can control what you want to do. I am happy to say that even though I didn’t do everything I wanted, I know that only I can control how I want my life to be.

Overall, I enjoyed my experiences at all my schools. Whether it was elementary, middle, high school, or college, I got to meet a lot of people and it truly helped shaped me into the person I am today. I hope that I will be able to land a job in my field but I am not too stressed out about it. I’m thinking of going back for grad school as well or just start my studies for the CPA exam. But I really want to take the time to invest in myself and use this time to be selfish and do what I want like traveling, before it is too late to do so. I have already made plans to go to Vancouver so I am really excited about that 😀 If anyone out there has suggestions on places to eat or visit, let me know 🙂 I will only be there for a week so I want to pack as much activities as I can!

Like I said earlier, I am scared of what will happen next, but I feel that I will be able to tackle on whatever life throws at me ⭐

To my parents: thank you for everything you have done for me in all my life, if it wasn’t for you encouraging me to do well, I would have never finished school and I am super happy that I got to walk the stage to make you both proud 🙂 te amo mucho ❤ ❤ ❤
