Tuesday was my last day of classes, and I just registered for a meeting about graduation for next fall, I’m in awe. In a week I will officially be a senior in college… a senior. Where has the time gone? It’s crazy to think that a year from now I will be getting ready for graduation, hopefully have a job and starting my adulthood. This past year has been a wild ride, but I loved every second of it. I made new friends, lost some, went through some personal things and overcame those. I wasn’t blogging as much as I wish I had, but I can change that! Summer is right around the corner, and I will have more time to dedicate to my little pocket on the internet. I will be having an internship, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to abandon this website.
I thought I’d share with you a couple of things that I learned this year, whether it be with school, friends, relationships, etc.
+Don’t be afraid to speak up, stand your ground
I’ll be the first to admit, I’m a huge introvert. I never speak up in my classes, so my participation grades always reflect that. But recently I’ve been trying to speak up because I find myself knowing the answers to the questions my professors ask, but I just don’t like raising my hand and having to speak up. I’m the same outside of class, if someone says something that upsets me I usually just stay quiet, but I’m trying to change all of this.
+Let the negative people go
You’ll experience people who you think are your friends, but then something happens and you have to let them go. I don’t want to get into it too much, but one of my best friends started dating a guy that completely took over her life. She stopped having fun, and let him plant this ideas into her minds about not only me but our other roommate too and we’ve come to just let her go because you don’t need that negatively in your life.
This is something I’ve stopped recently. I don’t know if it’s because of finals, but I’ve gotten on top of all of my work recently. I highly recommend it! It’s not fun waiting until the last minute to write a 3,000 word paper (even though I may have just done it) but try to get a leg up on your work!
+Do everything you’ve been wanting to do
Make a bucket list with your friends, or join the club you’ve been wanting to join. You’re only in college for four years, don’t just do nothing!
Best of luck to everyone going through finals right now, mine start tomorrow!
Also, I think I’m going to be vlogging while I’m in New York this summer. I’ve been wanting to get back into making YouTube videos, and I think that would be a great opportunity to! What do you guys think?
