The day I've been waiting for is finally here. After 12 years or wait after 13 years graduation is literally (@panton) around the corner. I couldn't be happier. The moment I walk across that stage hoping I don't fall down but I will be the happiest little 4'11 girl in the world. Finally out of Palmetto!! Goodbye to all the good and especially goodbye to all the terrible teachers or teacher that I had. Goodbye to the people that push in the hallways and poop in the bathrooms and not flush the toilet :) Thank you for pushing me in the hallway and saying "damn girl you short i didn see u". I will not miss you. Because I will be moving onto a new chapter in my life and even moving to a different state. To be honest, it is pretty nerve wrecking but im so ready for the move and to begin something that will benefit my future. I can't wait for game days, rush, dorm life, basically ready to be in college. I know I'll miss my parents and friends but I will meet people from all over the place and make new friends. My parents I can't really replace but I'll FaceTime them and come visit every chance they let me.

Next fall I will be living in Parham female residence. Not only is it the dorm I didn't want to live in but it is not co-ed, I have to share my room, there are bunk beds, and we have to get another roommate. All because one of my roommates picked the wrong dorm. We aren't allowed to take our bunk beds apart and the rooms are pretty small. No room for activities. One of the only positive things is that its right next to the stadium. So for game days we can just walk to the games and not worry about rides etc… Also, the dorm is about five minutes from sorority row. Which actually is the part best of the dorm. But we no longer have a kitchen so us four girls have to figure out how were gonna cook and be healthy. We all do not want to gain the freshmen 15. Hopefully we don't. On another note we are getting another roommate which we can't tell if it will be a good or bad thing. We are all already know each other and have gotten to know what we like and don't like so having another person tag along in our squad will probably suck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So after convincing my parents for about three months I finally got them to agree on letting me take my jeep to Alabama in the fall. After basically crying they made a deal with me and said if I get a job over the summer they'll agree to officially letting me take it. But now I'm in the whole debate of jeep or truck. Im practically obsessed with jeeps and already own one but after looking into more cars I fell in love with trucks along the way. My parents refuse to buy me a truck to travel 800 miles alone. Since I'm 4'11 they claim I'm too short for a truck but I think otherwise. My argument is that since I'm short ill be safer in a trucker because it is a lot bigger than my two door soft top jeep. But their argument is that Ill regret getting a truck and they'll receive a phone call two months from now on how I want to trade in the truck for a jeep. And costing me to come down from Bama waste money on trading in the cars and picking a new jeep after just have had selling the OG jeep.

I swear I have written so many scholarship essays that I don't understand how I still have fingers to type. What sucks even more than writing all these essays is that I probably won't receive half of them. But yet I need to keep applying to scholarships and writing my name and address about 1,000 times everyday, because that out of state tuition are loans waiting to happen. Even better waiting to be in debt. Each scholarship requires an essay with a word count of at least 500 words and than more short essays describing myself. How do I explain that I just need money and to please give it to me so im not in debt the rest of my life? At this point I don't even know what else to write about myself.
This weeks post is gonna be a little off topic! This past weekend I went to Tortuga. Tortuga is a country music festival run by Rock the Oceans Foundation. Rock the Oceans is all about saving the turtles and doing everything we could possibly do to save them from going extinct. It also promotes Rock the Oceans and lets people become aware of the organization and get involved. The concert is held in Ft.Laurdale Beach. It is was of the greatest experiences and each year something new happens. You meet people from all over florida and even from Georgia, Alabama (ROLLTIDE), North Carolina, and so much more. All here for the same reason to save the turtles and listen to good old country music.

AOII, ADPI,TRIDELT, DG,KD, and the list goes on and on and on. College comes with many perks and one of them is definitely Greek life. And it so happens that Bama has one of the top Greek life out there. I have always wanted to be in a sorority from all the pics to being able to be apart of a sisterhood that will help me through my four years in a state I've never lived in and people I have never known. Greek life is not for everyone but I'm sure it's for me. The process of joining a sorority can be a little rough. At most schools it's seven days but it's nine at bama. The first three days a normal casual with pretty sandals. The fourth day is when you start wearing wedges and dressing up. The fifth and sixth consist of wedges also and there is a formal day. If I'm not missing anymore the ninth is bid day. Bid Day is when you find out who/where you're sorority/sisterhood is. One of the most exciting days is Bid Day. You find out who your big sis is and they help you through the rest of the recruitment process. Bid day will probably be the most exciting days!
The search is officially over. Finally found my three roommates, and I couldn't be happier. We are all from different areas but Shay and I are both from South Florida. She's about an hour away. Next is Morgan she's from Pennsylvania and we actually look like, which is kinda creepy. Lastly there's Shannon, she was the last one to join our dorm. Shay, Morgan, and I looked for three weeks for our last roomie. Basically had mini interviews for each girl that asked to join our suite. Trust me there's a couple weirdos here and there. But Shannon instintally clicked with us. The only thing is none of the girls are rushing so I'll be alone in our suite for a almost two weeks. Otherwise, none of us can't wait to meet and start decorating our lil suite. We already send each other room ideas 24/7 in our bama roomie group chat. With all that being said can't wait to move August 3rd and join a sorority!
