October 11th - October 16th:
Arkansas turned out to be one of the funnest trips of my life. I never wrote about going because things were so rocky once I got home. I don't know what I really expected when flying into Arkansas, but it was definitely not anything like what I thought. It was beautiful! So pretty. I want to go see more of the midwest just because of that trip. Growing up in central Arizona really shelters you from all of the gorgeous greenery in other parts of the country. Not that Arizona isn't beautiful; it is. And parts of Arizona are prettier than others, but Arkansas just blew me away. Pictures don't even do it justice.
On December 20, 2012 I GRADUATED from Arizona State University! :)
I can't believe I am done with my undergraduate degree! How crazy is that? It's still pretty surreal to me. The fact that I am not signing up for classes in the spring is somewhat exciting and somewhat scary. I'm supposed to just be working full time now? I don't know if I like the sound of that. I applied for Teach for America and I'll hear back if I got a first initial interview or not on January 17th. Cross your fingers for me! I've heard it's really competitive and difficult to get into! Wish me luck :)
