i went up to campus today and had insane déjà vu putting my ID in my back pocket, my headphones in, and walking to the bus stop. it’s only been 3 and a half months since the last time i had to do that but it still felt really surreal. summer lasted way too long. i couldn’t help smiling when i stepped off the bus and saw groups of freshmen laughing with their friends and exploring the campus. it took me back to the first week when i moved in and everything was new and exciting and different.
i’m a senior in college now and i’m pretty excited to be done but also freaked out because i waited till my last year to do a lot of important things. i’m going to be interning at a group home for foster youth (specifically girls) for the next 6 months, while also taking two upper-division psych classes and working at my current job at a supported living services agency. this year i’m also trying to get involved in research with a social psych professor before i graduate. i know it’s gonna be really stressful and hard and i’m gonna have to work my ass off (like always) but hopefully it pays off in the end and everything works out as planned. i just need to remember to relax and set aside some personal time that doesn’t involve anything work or school related and not let everything overwhelm me like it has in the past. having my boyfriend by my side to support me will definitely help, which i am insanely thankful for. he has no idea how much i appreciate his presence in my life and how greatly it’s needed.
although it sucks having to be busy reading, writing papers, studying for exams, and doing homework 7 days a week, i am very blessed to be at a university, getting an education that will lead me somewhere in the future. i’m also proud of myself for being hard-working, dedicated, responsible, and serious when it comes to my education, no matter the emotional and mental toll it has taken on me. i have come so far since my high school years and it amazes me everytime i look back and see how much i have accomplished.
