Today I woke up, and I realized that everything I’ve ever done was never done in my own strength.
Though more so of a spiritual reference than a physical one, I would also like to take time out to acknowledge those who have been apart of this long journey with me throughout the years, dedicating their endless support and tireless efforts to see me succeed. It truly is appreciated.

Yesterday, I ended a long chapter of my life - my sophomore year of college.
It’s truly amazing how much time flies. I was just receiving my acceptance letter from the University of South Carolina, and now, I am halfway through my college journey. It’s truly a blessing, as well as an honor to have accomplished such an amazing feat, but I know that the journey is far from over.
Looking ahead, I’m proud to be working with the ETV Endowment this summer doing Public Affairs for their weekly PR show: Palmetto Scene. I’m looking forward to some great things from this opportunity, and I’m just extremely honored to be apart of this in just my second year of college.
Coming up in September, I am more than ecstatic to be going abroad for 3 months to Japan! -cues the celebratory music- Yes! I’ve wanted to go to this land since I was a tiny tot, and the dream is finally becoming a reality. I will definitely have lots of photos, Vlogs and updates of my experience.
Just being able to say all of that about what I’ve accomplished and what lies ahead for me, I’m just extremely grateful for the experience and I hope that anyone who reads this, who keeps up with me constantly, will use this as their own motivation and go out and do great things as well. Time truly waits for no one, and I’m a firm believer that hard work pays off.
With hard work comes a lot of rest and relaxation as well, so take a load off! This past week, I finally got to visit the Columbia Museum of Art to observe their show, “Meiji Magic”, which was a collection of Satsuma vases, plates and jars of the Meiji Restoration collected by SC residents, Alex and Barbara Kasten. A lot of the imagery within these items are of Kyoto, Japan, a place of which I truly hope I get to visit before departing.
Though I didn’t get to snap any photos of the collection (museum rules), I truly enjoyed what I saw, and hopefully there will be pictures online of some of the items in the collection. Here are some snapshots from my “study break.” Thanks for reading!
P.S. What are your plans this summer?? Tweet me @KDennis94
