I’m all moved back into my room for my upcoming junior year. Like wtf… I can’t believe I’m a junior??
I love my space this year though and my roommate. My house is so cute and I am very grateful to live with such awesome people.
Getting adjusted to a new setting/schedule is not the easiest but I have learned to really just go with the flow and ride all the waves that come along with change. I don’t have class until Wednesday this week, and syllabus week is always very very minimal work. So I’m really just trying to go with it all here… enjoy the time with less work and stress and just be present through it all- even the times I am stressed or overwhelmed. Mindfulness is one thing I am always trying to work on with myself.
This year for classes I’m taking health psychology, research methods, poetry, feminism, and a film class that fulfills one of my gender studies requirements. I really do love to learn so I’m excited because I get to learn about information I am so interested in. I was going to do an internship instead of the poetry class, but I really found it wasn’t fitting for me. If you know me, you know I love poetry… and I didn’t want to work in a school setting. So I kind of just went with my gut and made the decision to drop the internship, take a class for credit, and in return probably have a bit more free time for myself as well.
I’m excited for a lot of things this year… teaching yoga at school, co-leading a women’s interfaith spirituality retreat, turning 21, living in a new housing situation, my classes. Being back with friends and walking around campus again has made me so happy. I’m grateful to be here and receiving an education/connecting with other amazing souls… something I will be reminding myself for the times that I’m not in the best mood and am super overwhelmed by all life is throwing at me.
any changes happening in your life?
what are you looking forward to this week?
Have a great day friends!
