Sunset on Southern

by Olivia Barker

Look at this view...incredible. There is something to be said about a Georgia summer night. It was 8pm and about 91 degrees with 100% humidity when I took this picture, but you almost don’t care because you get lost in the clouds, in the sunset and in the peaceful water (no worries, Macon, my dog, jumped in the water about 3 seconds after this picture was taken). When I first moved here and I didn’t have a single friend, I walked Macon on campus every night. We would watch the sunset, he would chase the ducks and I would just pray that I made the right decision moving here, that I would make some friends and that I would do a well at my job. Three and a half years later, I can say that I made the right choice on moving to Georgia, I have a few great friends and I know I did the absolute best I could at my position. I gave a lot of myself to Georgia Southern and it has given me so much in return. I thank God for bringing me to here and for allowing me to grow, develop and flourish as a young professional.

Like I said in my last postI am doing my best to savor every moment I have left in Southeast Georgia. Tonight, Macon and I took what is probably our last walk on campus, his last swim in the lake and my last Georgia Southern sunset. We will more than likely be walking in our neighborhood this week because everything is going to be so nuts with finalizing my move, finishing packing and saying goodbye to everyone, but I will always love and appreciate the many walks I have taken on this campus, the many sunsets I’ve sat and watched by this lake and all the memories I’ve made at Georgia Southern.
