Coming home early turned out to be the best thing that could have happened to me. I feel as though I have done a complete 180 and am now more motivated than ever! After the awkwardness subsided, the love and support my family showed me really brightened my life. I was able to get a job coaching tennis with little kids where I used to train and they always manage bring joy into my life. The perk of being back in Texas where the winters are in the 50s and 60s definitely isnt bad either. I received the best news from my dad today. He is letting me go back to Penn State!! Of course I have to go to CAPS counseling, and I have to maintain at least B’s in all my classes, and my parents are going to keep a very close eye on my grades, but I know that I am ready to take on the challenge! The fact that I have convinced my dad to give me another chance is a huge confidence boost by itself and I could not be more excited to see my friends again and make the most of my opportunity!
