So there’s this Aggie Ring. It symbolizes everything it means to be an Aggie, and all the accomplishments, memories and hard work that goes completing 90 hours of college courses at Texas A&M.
The Aggie Ring is something that all Aggies dream about until they get one, and cherish for a lifetime once they have one. It’s hard to explain exactly how special this little piece of gold means to me, and all Aggies.
When I graduated high school, I was pretty much homeless. I only applied to one college and put all my hope into getting accepted. When I did, it was like a dream come true. No one else in my family has ever actually finished college so its a big deal that I got in.
Since freshman year I’ve struggled with getting good grades, even though I’ve worked really hard. I’ve come a long way since then, and I’m really proud of myself that I’ve gotten this far. I’ve had a lot of hardships that most people don’t have to go through, but I’ve never given up.
So when I finished off the semester with an impressive NEVER BEFORE SEEN 3.0 for the semester, and pulled myself out academic probation I was filled with joy, and most of all relief.
EVEN FUCKING BETTER, I’m eligible for MY Aggie Ring. ME. I’ve dreamed of this day for what seems like forever. I can’t believe on September 16, 2011 I will finally get my ring.
The Aggie Ring means I’ve earned my right to be an Aggie. I’ve spent the countless hours in the library, no sleep, stressing out of my effing mind, praying and hoping, taking test after test, gotten myself THOUSANDS of dollars in debt, all for theoretically for 2 days. 1. The day I get my Fightin’ Texas Aggie Ring, and 2. the day I get my Fightin’ Texas Aggie Bachelor’s Degree!!!!! WHOOP!
after that, we don’t speak of it. LOL the real world is a scary…..idea. it’s not a place yet. haha
