Yes. I am doing it. I am writing that cliché end of the school year blog post. Mostly because I think reflection is good for the soul.
This year was full of ups and downs, and was easily my toughest year of college thus far, and probably for the rest of my college career. I moved off campus into a house this year like a real adult. I had to work part-time and pay rent every month (I was never late!), study hard, and manage my physical and social health. It’s a tough life being a college student. Woe is me.
On a more serious note though, this year taught me a lot about myself as well as what it really means to be independent, manage my time, and find balance in the midst of a crazy schedule. I took chances this year; I sang in a musical for the first time, I finally was able to feel fully comfortable in my own skin, I took my fitness and health to a new level, I forgave people, and I completed tasks I had not thought possible. I believe it is always important to reflect on what you have learned from difficult situations, and I think this year really taught me to see the good in some not so easy situations this year.
It’s been real and it’s been fun, but that’s a wrap for sashasays. This chapter has come to a close and it’s on to my next adventure, wherever it may take me.
