The Thankful Project

thankful project title

Today I am linking up with a new blogger I found over at Chasing Happy. She is challenging us to write something for each day of the month of November. 

Today's topic: An Experience that you are thankful for. 

I am thankful for being able to attend college back in 2000-2004 at BGSU. My college years were by far the most amazing influential years of my life which helped shape and mold me to whom I am today. 

A person does so much growing from the time they leave High school through those 4 years of college. Being truly on my "own" was a gift all in its self. Everything my father had said to me in HS was, "you need to fend for yourself." "You've got to learn how to help yourself out because one day I won't be there."
 Now granted he is still alive and well today, but the point was that life can be taken from you in an instant, and you have to be prepared for it. 

Entering BGSU in the year of 2000 was a "lost" time for me. High school years were not my glory days, and I felt very disconnected from what I wanted to be or where I wanted to go with life. I had no idea what I wanted to study or what direction I wanted to go in terms of a career. 

I am so thankful for the amazing art program BG had, and all the instructors that really truly got me excited about school again. Those professors are often few and far and in between, but the few I did have were wonderful! 

If you are interested in linking up, here's what on the list to write about what you are thankful for!

  1. I like this more than all the facebook posts I am seeing

  2. I agree with Kristin - I might jump in! I'm also thankful for those college days. I was like you as a freshman and totally had no idea what I wanted to do or how to get there. I'm thankful for eventually figuring it out!
