The big decision


If you don’t know me you will quickly find out that making decisions are NOT my strong suit. I’m always the last to order at a restaurant and selecting outfits continues to be a difficult task. I am constantly texting my best friend for shoe opinions and despite all this, my parents somehow thought that choosing a college would be an easy task! HA!

It was so bad that my parents finally had to set a deadline for me. I was given until last Friday night to decide what college I would attend for the next four years of my life. It was an overwhelming thought then frankly, it still is. After all, this decision would dictate what color I would have to sport for the next 1,460 days.

I was quite proud of myself that I had narrowed it down to 2. After all, my decision dilemma led me to apply to 12 schools, out of complete inability to make a choice. I know it’s a bit ridiculous. My heart was completely cut in half. The funny thing is , if you would have asked me junior year what school I was going to, neither of these schools would have been in my top three.

My short list contained 2 completely amazing schools, but at the same time two completely different schools. I mean seriously you couldn’t get more different! They are on opposite ends of the spectrum in just about everything

Typical Shannon strategy, I made a pro/con list.  When I thought about it in depth, I knew that in reality I really could be happy at either of these places, and that’s why I was so torn. Both schools offered different things that I knew could fit my personality.

It really came down to where I thought I would be most comfortable. And therefore because of this, Friday morning I walked down our stairs proudly sporting my FURMAN UNIVERSITY PURPLE.  FU has taken on a whole new meaning in our house!


We put down the deposit and everything is set. in stone. I’m so excited to be apart of the Furman family next year! It’s definitely going to be a huge change but I’m ready to dive in!


This picture is from Accepted Students Day at Furman where I got to meet Dorothy who blogs at Prep In Your Step! I'm and so excited to be future classmates together!

FU!

Remember, 

Cheers!
