This is my fourth year here and college has been incredibly hard for me on just about all fronts. I've grown a lot, yes, but I've also been through a lot. We all have. So when a decision came up this week whether or not to define my time and energy this year by continuing the work I've been doing, it wasn’t an easy one to make.
Two years ago I decided to make it a year of yes. Then it became two years. Then two and a half. Today, in my third year of college and not without a whole lot of hesitation or deliberation, I’m changing my mind. Today, I’m saying no.
