I thought I had everything figured out. That I would graduate with an Informatics degree and make a living as a computer programmer. I believed that after graduation I would be living in orange county or Silicon Valley and working for one of the big tech companies. The truth is that I was not able to adjust to the quarter system. I struggled for three quarters until I decided that it was time to throw in the towel. It was the hardest decision that I had to do in my life, interestingly I’ve never been a person that worries about stuff like this. What was so different this time?. Why was I feeling this way?. The UC system has given me unforgettable memories. One day I’ll look back at these experiences from catching pneumonia to eating it on my long-board and fracturing my elbow. Also, I can’t forget about those 8am courses and presentations on week 2. Throughout it all its been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I met many amazing people that lived for service and others that their whole life revolved around God. I found my faith and found myself here. Its time to fold my hand of cards. I leave at peace and excited for this new journey that I will embark on.
