Dear Twenty Year Old Me, 

On May 5th, 2012 I ranked in the top 10% of my senior class and received Magna Cum Laude from the #3 ranked school in Georgia. Through endless night in the library I have balanced 3 jobs and school over the past 2 years and fully supported myself. I have faced many struggles and everything that I have been through has made me who I am today. I have an amazing boyfriend and friends who have stuck by my side when I have put them last on my priority list with school and work taking the front seat. Despite all of these achievements, after 4 years I can look back and say I am appreciative for the hard working person I am today, but no one will remember what you did or what your GPA was, but they will remember how you made them feel and the memories that were made. Four years go by in the blink of an eye and I had some wonderful times with some wonderful people. I can only hope I made an impression on their lives as they did on mine. So live it up and remember that life is short so don't waste it stressing about a test or a grade. It all works out the way it should in the end.

Much love, 

22 years old Amanda
