Hey everyone! One thing I’ve always loved about this blog is that I get to document parts of my life in such a unique way. It’s one thing to have photographs of your life and be able to look back on that exact moment visually. But to be able to look back years from now and remember exactly what my thoughts were and what I was feeling is truly a gift. I want my kids to look back and hopefully relate to exactly what I was feeling. I hope you all can relate as well! This Talkative Tuesday I’d like to discuss entering my third year of college. I talk once in a while about school on this blog, especially about the major milestones like the start of a new year or the ending of one. It’s crazy I’m halfway through my college experience and with that have come a lot of worries and doubts…but also a lot of excitement!
The past couple of years have been filled with a lot of Gen Ed classes, with fun major classes sprinkled in as well! I’ve been trying knock out a lot of the G.E.’s so I can really focus on my major these next couple years. I will still have to take some G.E.’s to finish up, but I’ve definitely got a majority of them completed! But I’m hoping this year will be the start of my dive into Graphic Design. I come to love it more and more and I can’t wait to get those classes started. This summer I’ve tried to keep my artistic juices flowing and keep my motivation for what I hope to become a future career. That being said, have you noticed my new blog logo?? It’s the first logo I’ve ever designed and I’m sure it will be morphing into many different looks throughout the life of this blog. I created it with watercolor and wrote the name by using my new calligraphy skill.
Anyways, I don’t want to ramble too much about that and stick with this school topic. If any of you are in college or have gone through college, it kind of hit me hard that I’m halfway through it. As excited as I am for these next couple of years, I still don’t know exactly what I want to do with my life. On one hand, I can’t wait to find out what that is; what I’m going to dedicate my life to! But on the other, it’s kind of terrifying not knowing where my future is headed. I know I’m on the right track, but I hope a great idea presents itself to me soon.
This year I am living in a dorm for the third year in a row. I’ll be honest, at first I was pretty bummed I wouldn’t be living in a bigger space like an apartment. But now, I’m really trying to look on the positive side of things, because there really are some great things about dorm life that make school so much simpler! I’ll be so much closer to campus as compared to last year and I’m close to the kitchen, where I’m planning on sticking to an ultra healthy lifestyle this year. I’m living with one of my closest friends at school (shoutout to Emmy!), so I know it’s going to be a kick butt year! I’ve learned through situations like these that even though you might have not gotten exactly what you needed, you can still find positives in whatever you were given. And that makes you excited about what lies ahead and to even look forward to it.
It’s crazy to think that after this year I’ll only have a year left. I think at about this time in a person’s life, they feel happiness, excitement, sadness, fear, uneasiness, and fulfillment to the greatest levels. In the end though, everything works out the way it’s supposed to and everything leading up to this moment happened so that you could be here. That is the attitude I am taking with this upcoming school year and I really hope it’s a great one for everybody! Have a lovely day everyone <3
