Dear 100 Hour Board,
What's the happiest thing that's happened to you in 2019 so far?
-My Name Here
I planned a trip to Hawaii with my boyfriend and the rest of our group of friends! We're going right after finals and then hanging out in LA for a bit after. I'm excited to be able to take a vacation and relax after another year of classes. Motivation to finish the semester strong!
My little sister got accepted into BYU! Aaaaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!!!!! I’m so happy! I can’t wait for fall semester. We’ll get to go to school together and I can’t even!!!
Getting plane tickets to Japan.
P.S. Something else that was super cool, but was more of a fan girl experience was meeting Christine Darden (like, I was able to talk with her personally) and hearing her talk about her life. She is so legit and my hero in life.
I got engaged! So that was pretty fantastic. No more long-distance relationships!
I'm also pretty dang happy because, as some of you may know, I've been applying to PhD programs for political science and so far I've been accepted to Stanford, Princeton, MIT, UCLA, and Duke! Still not sure where I'll go but I'm just grateful I wasn't rejected from every school I applied to (which I genuinely thought might happen).

Dear chicken fangs,
I went caving recently and enjoyed myself quite a bit. I wanted to go caving with a local group, and since they didn't have anything planned I pinned a date down and got things planned. It was during the semester, and so not everyone who wanted to participate was available, but in the end a dozen people gloriously crawled into a rock and made it perhaps three quarters of a mile into the chilly earth before we retreated from the subterranean realm and the remote but horrifying possibility of turtle people (TURTLE PEOPLE, THE MOVIE: COMING SLOWLY TO A THEATRE NEAR YOU).
This week I'm performing in a ballet, and sticking with that and working towards it despite personal insecurities, frustrations and setbacks is, for me, something worth achieving.
