At this time of the semester we are all busy with exams, presentations and other finals-week assignments. Stress is at an all-time high and it’s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel sometimes. But today, I sat outside one of my favorite buildings on campus and all of the anxiety and stress vanished for a few moments. For one of the last times ever, I sat on a bench on our beautiful campus and felt thankful for all that I have.

Just remember that even when you feel helpless or want to quit, you have been given the great opportunity of earning an education. Be thankful that you have the life you do, and that you live in a supportive community. Be appreciative of your peers and wise professors who are there to help you through your college career. You live a life that others in the world can only dream of, and that’s something to be thankful for. 

Since I tranferred from community college, it’s been an amazing two years at Millersville. Thank you to all who have touched my life and supported me through the years. Thank you to Her Campus for the fun times and allowing me to express myself through editorials. 

Goodbye from me and Twix,

xo, Rachael

Major: Multidisciplinary Studies with concentrations in marketing and public relations.Graduation: Spring 2015I have been a writer for Her Campus since the beginning of fall 2014 and have enjoyed every minute of it. I have a passion for fashion and cosmetics, and although I like to keep up with current trends, I also like to stick to classics that never go out of style. I believe that less can be more, and it is always okay to wear red lipstick- no matter the occasion. I lived in England twice, and that culture has influenced many of my interests and lifestyle. Like most brits I love drinking tea and eating fish n chips. Rainy, gloomy days are not my enemy, but rather provide a sense of nostalgia. When I lived in Europe I was able to travel to many countries which has left me with a desire to travel the rest of the world.I lived on a horse farm for several years, which has given me the knowledge and passion for working with horses. I volunteer once a week at a sanctuary in Manheim that rehabilitates abused and neglected horses, and would like to eventually volunteer with exotic wildlife. I love all animals, and currently own a pet hedgehog, named Twix. My career goals would be to work as a marketing or public relations professional in entertainment, sports, or fashion. I have many dreams, some bigger than others. In the meantime I plan on taking small stepping stones that will one day lead there.
