THREE steps forward, and ONE step back.

OH MY GOSH. These past few months have been so hectic for me. Juggling two jobs, schoolwork, and my family WHILE attempting to have a social life has proven to be quite a challenge this semester. Thats mainly why I haven’t been able to post anything in a while. 🙁 Regardless, I thought now would be the perfect time to recap the crazy sophomore year I’ve had.

This year was really a time of growth for me. I’ve strengthened important relationships and weeded out the poisonous ones. I’ve finally been able to come to terms with the fact that there are many life changing decisions ahead and the time to act on them will come sooner than I could ever imagine. I’m learning how to have balance in my life and appreciate those who are sticking by me…even with all the whining I do. hahaha. The way I see it, things can only get better right?

(Now I know this photo has nothing to do with my post, but for me its a nice reminder that life goes on and everyday is another chance to change.)

At school, I’m starting to explore my options. My mind has been rummaging through all the possible future jobs and fields of interest to pursue. For example, now that Junior year is months away I need to find some internship opportunities. To add to my stress, my area of interest (within psychology) seems to change everyday! I guess it will come with time.

Home and work has been the same. Time consuming. haha. Just kidding. I know my family will always be there for me and working means I can eat, so who am I to complain?

As for having a social life, I’ve tried to participate in as many school events as my schedule would allow. Regretfully, I have been unsuccessful. This year a friend of mine organized a new student club on campus called Marianist College LIFE. I agreed to be a part of the club and help out with their many community service projects and social events; however, I never had the time to :(. They are also sponsoring Chaminade’s last Mass of the school year on May 1st so hopefully I’ll be able to show my support then. I really do hope that I will be able to be a more active member next school year. Its quite nice to be a part of something so selfless and generous. Especially when all its members are young college students. haha.

I’ve been trying to compile a “highlights reel” of sorts of this past school year and I promise to upload as soon as its finished. Now, here’s my disclaimer….I’m no pro at video production or anything. I’m just a lazy college student with iMOVIE. haha so don’t get too excited 🙂
