A big chapter in my life has ended, and it ended a lot faster than I thought it would. If you have been following my blog posts, you know that I have recently graduated from my undergrad at UNM.

My undergrad at UNM has been a large part of me and my journey. I came from a small town with only one high school. Coming to Albuquerque gave me the opportunity to figure out who I want to be and grow into a better version of myself.

This growth came from friendships, classes, and work environments. At UNM, I have met my closest, lifelong friends, and have many late-night memories that I will never forget. I had classes whose lessons will follow me everywhere I go. And I have gained work experience that I could not have found elsewhere.

These experiences, I will take with me forever.

Moving forward, I’ll still be continuing my journey at UNM. This time around, I will be going to school as a grad student and earning my master’s in Spanish.

I was lucky enough to be offered a full-ride for my master’s degree. Through my scholarship and teaching introductory levels of Spanish in UNM’s Department of Spanish and Portuguese, I will be able to live comfortably for the next two years.

While I am glad my time at UNM will be able to continue, I am sad that my undergrad has come to a close. Your undergrad is very unique, and you will never be able to experience anything like it again.

As my time blogging has come to a close, I would like to leave some advice. During your undergrad, find a balance of fun and school. Undergrad is one of the very few times that you can go full steam on school and fun without feeling entirely drained (sometimes). Take advantage of this before you have to work a full-time job. Experience your undergrad to the fullest extent meaning attend games, go to school events, and spend as much time with friends as possible.

That being said my time blogging has come to an end. Go Lobos and goodbye.
