First day of classes at UNCW! Time to hop on my bike and get to work! 🚲 Also for those of you that know me well that are like why the heck is she wearing shorts and not a dress, the high is 95 today, I have to bike a few miles worth around campus, and my first class is salsa dancing 🙊 But anyway… Living my dreams, loving life, loving my room & my roommates! God is so good! ☀️ #UNCW #Dreams #FilmSchool
I never thought this day would come, but oh my gosh it’s here and how fast it came. Today, I leave my beloved West Virginia to follow a dream. A dream that began with a Barbie video camera that Santa Claus brought me when I was seven years old. A dream that fully cultivated in 7th grade…. Film school at UNCW. This dream seemed so easy at first… But life has made it come with a price.. Leaving my home among the hills, my parents, and of course, my wonderful boyfriend. Too often I see dreams die because they aren’t scary enough or because it would be easier to stay with your boyfriend than to go off on your own. I’m here to tell you you’re right… It would’ve been so easy for me to stay at Marshall and stayed by his side… But it would’ve been wrong. I’m so grateful for his encouragement, telling me to go. It would be so easy to back out from all of the changes and transitions this dream will bring me, but my parents have supported me and loved me and prepared for me this since day one. Before I start to ramble, I guess I’m just trying to say thank you. Thank you to my God, my family, Jacob, and my friends… Because this dream is finally about to set sail. Nervous and anxious and meek 7th grade Jillian would be so proud… And right now, that’s all that matters. #UNCWbound #dreams #dreamstakehardwork
