I was a nobody. Just an immigrant kid growing up in small town Ohio. I didn't have big dreams but deep down knew I was made for more. So I packed up our navy Ford Explorer and followed my high school sweetheart to college. I was going to be the first in my family to get my college diploma. The only tragedy? My boyfriend broke up with me a week before classes started. I was crushed.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times
College saw months of tears in my dorm room, not making the volleyball team, the freshman 15, letting go of trying to be popular, finally ending an ongoing unhealthy relationship, and embracing the quirky friends right in front of me.
When I finally met the love of my life, it was like a God written fairy tale (better than The Notebook!). Meeting in London, kissing under the Piccadilly Circus fountain, and Steven saying the three magic words right before I got on an airplane back home. He stole my heart but long distance was a nightmare.
