With my first semester under my belt, I can’t believe how much has changed just within the past 6 months.
I care about things that I didn’t care about before. I have a 401K! I balance school and work (which I did before, but now it’s way more of a balancing act). I have opinions about political candidates and actually know things about how our government works.
This first semester of college was difficult and easy. Adjusting to the ways of college was sometimes hard, but the ways of college are so much fun! There is so much freedom which can be the best worst thing about college.
I have learned how to handle my time, how to make time for the fun and to balance work, school, and fun AND be happy about all of it.
I cherish things more now than I did before; my relationship with God, my family, even my dog. I cherish the relationships I lost and I see how much better I am now without them.
I love college. I love my life and the things in it. Where I am now I had no idea I could ever be, but here I am. I never thought I (extra capitalized I) would be a small group leader for an amazing group of girls. I didn’t think I would be worthy to help lead and befriend such an amazing group of sixth-grade girls.
College was not like I thought it would be, it has been better! I have had some awesome experiences that I never imagined I would be blessed to have.
This first semester of college has been hard, but it has been worth it. Who I am now is not who I was then. I am a better version of myself. I am a stronger version of myself. I am excited to see where my life is going to go and I trust that wherever it goes God is in control.
