It finally happened. After 5 1/2 years at Brigham Young University I have freed myself from that place. No, it wasn't all that bad. I had a good experience. Spending three years deciding what I wanted to study was the easy part - including paying for the many, many parking tickets I racked up for myself! Let's just say it was quite the accomplishment for me and I never thought I'd be able to say I graduated. Not only have I graduated from the "college life" - as eventful as that was - I've graduated from the "swimming life" as well. Which, I must say, is a lot harder then I thought I would be. I'm actually having to find things to do to keep myself busy so I don't go insane because I'm not training for anything anymore. Sixteen and a half years of swimming under my belt and some priceless life lessons learned through it all, it's time for me to say goodbye to what's been a part of my life for so long.
