Getting Back in the Swing of Things

Guess what!

I am in the VERY LAST semester of my undergraduate career. I am excited, sad, happy, anxious… The list could go on forever.

I am having a difficult time getting back into the swing of things on campus. It’s not like me, but I am getting off to a slow start this semester. I am wondering why it’s happening. You think I would have this perfected by now, right? I think I am afraid that I’ll rush through the next few months. I do not want the end to sneak up on me too quickly.

Usually, I can jump right back into the rhythm of classes, homework, and campus life. This time things are different. I know I should be more excited than anything else, but this transition may be more challenging than others before it.

I am excited to learn more about myself as I chase the dreams of my childhood. I am going to do the things that I was too afraid to do until now. Let’s just say that magazines like Vogue, Elle, and Glamour will know my face soon 🙂

 It feels great to know that I have great friends that will support me in my endeavors. I am prepared to support them too. I have great faith in the potential of my peers. I know they will be the psychiatrists, singers, professors, lawyers, researchers, songwriters and doctors that will change our society for the better. It brings me joy to know that in small ways we are all connected through our experiences here.

 Any advice for a graduating senior that is anxious about what’s to come?
