The past week has been so hectic and so amazing at the same time! I am finally done with my third semester at Montreat and I am on my way to moving on. I got my official acceptance to Appalachian State and I am beyond stoked!!! I love going to new places and experiencing new things and App is definitely going to do that for me. There are so many differences between it and Montreat. For one it’s a state school, HUGE (at least compared to tiny Montreat), has an actual art building (unlike Montreat’s art room), and it has football!!!!! I feel like App is going to be a much better fit for me.
Although, I will definitely miss Montreat. Not gonna lie, it was really bittersweet and weird to turn in my withdrawal form earlier. I will miss my friends and the experiences I have had. Montreat is a very special place and it was the place I needed to be when I was there. Being there showed me all the opportunity I had, what I wanted to do in my future, how to stick with stuff even when it sucks, and it helped me meet some incredible people!
Now i get to take the next semester off and work on some stuff I have been meaning to do. I also have to find a job…
I guess that’s all part of growing up and joining the real world, huh? I also have to finish all my applications for this summer. Granted my mother is less than thrilled about me being on the river again. I guess the whole big water, big danger thing makes her super nervous. I wish she could understand how much more I have to learn and how big water is part of that. But, hey she’s my mom and looking out for me is her job and it’s a big one at that! Hahahaha
Not only do I have to get hired for some bigger water I need to get in big water shape. These next three and a half months i am going to be working out with my friend Megan. She’s gonna teach me how to rock climb and ride a bike. Yes, I am 19 and do not know how to ride a bike, weird I know. while she is doing that, I am going to teach her how to swim. We are going to beat our bodies into sexy submission! We joke about how we are gonna have such crazy chest muscle we that we can move our boobs like guys can move their pecks! ;D
I will be posting my raft guide specific workout later on this month!!
