on wards and upwards

“Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you or makes you happy.” 
--Robert Tew

For the past six years I have spent a vast amount of time and effort at Boston University playing many different roles; student, grad student, alumni, employee. I have faithfully commuted every day with my father who has been very forgiving of my odd hours, snacking preferences, and dislike of AM talk radio. I have had classes in a wide array of buildings, eaten at all the dining halls, and further developed a great love of BU (that has been instilled since birth).

With my recent move (and some soul searching) I realized that BU didn't hold my future as I always assumed. As a result I have accepted a new role in a totally different environment that I am very excited about. 

"I may still not know what I want to be when I grow up, but I do know that someday I want to live in a house filled with my books and travel souvenirs. And the walls that aren't covered in bookshelves will be covered with photos of my family and friends. When I leave the house I will be going to a job I love, and I'll return to a person I love. So, that's my dream I'm working on."
--Amber Morley

Over the past week I have been commuting about two hours one way into BU. This has given me a great deal of time to think about life, the future, and the present. I realized how much more there is to life than a job. Life is about creating meaningful interactions, friendships, a happy home, and living life to the fullest.

While I will miss BU terribly it isn't goodbye, it's see you later (I already have tickets to a hockey game next weekend!).

On wards and upwards...
