I also was on a panel earlier in the day to talk to recently accepted students about the FIT Honors program. The experience made me think of my own acceptance and the fact that it had been a year since I knew I would be attending college in New York City. Where did the time go man? A year, already? It's so crazy how fast time flies by, and I think it is really important to cherish it. Yes the cliche, appreciate what you have now post. Appreciate the little moments, like when your walking around New York at three in the morning because you can't sleep or when your date turns out to be the most awkward night of your life.
Laugh. Life is so much better when you find the humor in it.
I cannot stress how much I am grateful to be living my dream. This dream though is a lot of work, it is mentally, physically and emotionally taxing, but with the right mindset, one can accomplish anything. I will fight and work my hardest until I get where I want to be, and then I will work and fight some more to compete against myself.
