Today I am happy. In fact am happy everyday. I try to smile a lot and having a positive attitude has helped me with every situation in life.
Today I am happy because I after four years of hard work, I am finally done with my collegiate education. The time went by fast. People who say high school is the best time of your life clearly did not go to college.I have met some of the greatest people ever here in Tampa and I will sad to leave them. I will take everywhere I go a million memories from UT.
I will be honest and say I was not a saint during my time here. I failed two classes during my time here, but I have not gotten a "C" since my the fall semester of 2009. I am the kind of person that works very hard for "B" and it is a pet peeve of mine when my best is not good enough (for an A).
I can name you a few bars in town and couple of clubs too, even though my friends friends will tell you that I did not go out much.
I have read over 30 book during my time here. Some of my favorites include Tuesdays With Morrey, Where Men Win Glory, Blindness and anything by Gabriel Garcia Marquez…that man is a genius.
I never went to the beach (clearwater or st pete) while at UT and I never swam at the UT pool. I have gotten used to the routine of studying and classes and it will be a change not to have to worry about such things.
I am also proud to say I never pulled an all-nighter. This has to do with me preferring to sleep than doing homework. I prioritize everything and sleeping is always the best option.
I want to thank both set of parents, here and El Salvador for their support. I am truly blessed.
May 19th cannot get here soon enough!
