Well, sophomore year is officially over. Praise the Lord, forever and ever amen.
In all honesty, it was a great year. I was blessed to have incredible roommates, friends, and mentors– it was a year of building relationships, and deepening roots. I feel like I’m walking away with a greater sense of purpose, and a more holistic understanding of the world.
That being said, it was far more academically challenging than freshman year. (*cough* organic chemistry *cough*.) While entering summer was bittersweet last year, I feel drained this time around. The next couple of months will be a much needed respite.
That being said, I’ll be keeping busy. I recently received a job in a nearby bakery, and I’m hoping to line up some shadowing opportunities. I’m also enrolled in an EMT program (SO PUMPED) and I’m taking a couple of summer classes.
That being said, I’m going to spend this upcoming week resting. And I refuse to feel guilty about it.
It’s going to be a great summer.
