My senior year of college started with a mix of excitement, sadness, and fear. I lived in an on-campus apartment with my best friend and the girls who would over the course of the year become my other best friends. I planned two major music recitals, one because it was required for my degree, the other because said best friend and I apparently decided we didn’t have enough work to do. And over the course of the year I developed the skills and strength to step off of campus and into a mature, adult life.
Who am I kidding with the last one?
Looking back, senior year really was one of the biggest years of my life. While I learned a ton over the course of college, it is the lessons I learned at the end of my time at Westfield State that really stuck with me.
