The last couple of weeks have sure had their highs and lows.
This past week my paternal grandfather passed away after fighting an off and on illness.
I just want to say how thankful I am to have such a great “family” here in Sacramento that has been my rock this past week. I know that where ever I am, I will always have the love and support of these amazing people.
One of the biggest things I got from my grandfather was his stubbornness. The stubbornness to keep my head up and not let things get to me. There will always be people telling you that you won’t make it. Despite this, I am so close to reaching a goal I have had my whole life: To graduate with my bachelor’s degree. In about 2 months I will be crossing a stage and shaking the hand of my university president; then heading off to where ever my job takes me.
If I didn’t have lows like this I don’t think I would appreciate the highs I get to experience.
There have been numerous highs over the past few weeks that I haven’t had a chance to write about. In some way or another, they revolve around my work with The State Hornet, KCRA or my friends.
This past week I had the opportunity to act as the executive producer for an intern newscast at KCRA and write some great pieces for The State Hornet. I will be writing a piece all about my newscast later this week!
To end this post, I am just going to say “Thank You!” to everyone who has encouraged me, and pushed me to take an opportunity to I didn’t think I was ready for. In the next few weeks I am going to be applying to post-grad jobs; jobs I never would have been able to reach if not for your encouragement.
