Things could not be better for me right now.
I did end up getting accepted to the City and Regional Planning program at OSU. And it's perfect for me.
I also have an internship with Local Matters, which is a Columbus-based non profit that deals with food systems. I work specifically with an initiative that connects people at risk of hunger with cooking and nutrition classes.
AND I work at Jeni's, a Columbus artisan ice cream shop that is dedicated to high quality, locally-sourced ingredients as well as social and environmental enterprise.
I'm in a program fitted to my interests, I have a meaningful internship, and on the weekends I scoop up the best ice cream in the world. My life is awesome.
I just want to high five everyone.
Most days, I feel a lot of this.
A combination of working really hard and being lucky/blessed has given me tons of great opportunities, and I'm looking forward to the future.
In short: everything is awesome. I'm awesome. You're awesome.
