Tomorrow is back to the daily grind. After 10 days well spent, its time to get back to Omaha, Creighton and homework. I had the best break, but tonight as I lay in bed, preparing for tomorrow I can't help but get a little excited for tomorrow and for the next couple months. I've waited years for law school and after this break, I only get more excited when I realize I'm living my dream. Sometimes I hate it, sometimes I love it and sometimes it's harder than imaginable. But this is my dream and its exhilarating. So, after some Con Law homework, Property and Civ Pro, its time for bed, because tomorrow I'm waking up to my dreams.
Fall Break 2010 has been one of the best weeks of my collegiate life. I got to come home, reconnect with my family and my friends. Sleep in my own bed, have homemade dinners, take out dinners, home depot runs with dad, multiple Oreganos visits and lots of wine. I got to stay up chatting with my mom, see my best friends every day, hang out with my brother and sisters multiple times and just relax. Even though some of my days were consumed with studying and preparing for the next two months of school, it was the nicest break from it all. Besides what I personally got to do, what I got to see my friends do was the best. I watched two of the people I love most in this world, Whitney and Natalia succeed. It's the most incredible thing to watch someone accomplish their goals and start living their dreams. This week I watched Whitney face her fears, have her nursing school interview and basically get in! I listened as Natalia told me she got in to her first grad school. People are succeeding all around me and it's the best feeling. They chased their dreams, and pretty soon they'll be living them and I can't wait to be there for the ride.
All successful people men and women are big dreamers. They imagine
what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they
work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose.
- Brian Tracy
To Natalia and Whitney, tonights about celebrating you two. So, even though tonight is my last night in Arizona, I'm going to be celebrating it with my friends and family. We're going to be celebrating life this far, because it's a good one and it deserves to be recognized.
I don't think in all my years of being away at school I've ever been more excited to go home. This is going to be the best, most well deserved break ever. Less than 12 hours and I'll be sitting on this patio, looking at this view with all my family and friends.
Friends are there to reassure you that things are always going to "be okay." They might seem terrible and complicated at the moment, but friends remind you that you're going to get through it. When class gets too hard, and the reading seems to much, your friends remind you that you're following your heart and going after your dreams. Friends are your common sense when you can't see straight. Thanks for being [that friend] last night.
Fall is finally here and everyone is raving about it. From 'tweets' about pumpkin spice lattes, to facebook pictures of orange leaves, everyone is feeling the change in seasons. I didn't really understand what fall meant until I moved to the midwest. Leaves actually do change here, and that cool, crisp air that everyone talks about... well guess what? It really does exist. It's almost as if with all these changes comes the sense that something really big is coming. It doesn't have to be anything in particular, but it's the endless possibilities that excite me. This year seems to be the year of endless possibilities: acceptance to law school, the chance to move on, a new city, a new apartment and new friends. It's this feeling that nothing can stop me. I'm in the school where brilliant people surround me. I've never been the brilliant one... I've been the outgoing one, the friend, the sorority girl, the girlfriend, but never the brilliant one. But when October 1st hit and that cool breeze hit my face, I felt the possibilities hit me as well. I could be one of those people. I could be the smart one, I am the possibility. So, fall is here people, along with the notion that something big is happening. The possibilities are out there. So, it's time to trade out those bikinis for a nice cozy sweater, start sipping red wine instead of white and start believing in it all. I'm falling in love with Omaha day after day and this past weekend I was blessed to share it with my new friends. My biggest fear moving to Omaha was that I would stick out like a sore thumb, be the weird new girl thats never lived through a 'real winter' and have no friends. All my Zona friends tired to convince me that I'd have friends, but I wasn't so sure. But this weekend I basked in the joy that are my new friends. Even though I am the weird girl that doesn't know winter, I have friends here that are helping me with that. They're my Omaha blessings and they don't even know. They make my Arizona homesickness a little less, and I'm reveling in the possibilites and joys of these new friendships.
