For my final blog, I would like to reflect on the semester and plans for the summer in the form of a journal entry!
May 8, 2023
This past semester has been hectic, but I am so happy with how it went! This semester, I decided to take advantage of all the opportunities possible, but as we know, life can throw curveballs. After having to get another job and joining more things than I could handle. I found myself with five classes, joining DSAC, blogging, adding a minor, and having to work two jobs. Blogging was my safe haven without realizing it. Whenever I felt overwhelmed, I found myself looking forward to putting my creativity into a post for my peers to see. After writing a post, it reminded me that I am not alone, and the person sitting next to me is BMGT 451 is probably feeling the same exact way!
While I valued this tremendously, the one regret I have is not having enough time to put into finding an internship for the summer. Nevertheless, the hunt is not over! I also know that I’m not the only one in this situation, and I can’t wait for summer to come as I continue my education journey! This summer, I hope to rest, work, and spend lots of time with my family and friends! The last thing I would like to document is that I am so proud of myself and the person reading this!
Blogging for USG Around The Grove has been such a privilege, and so much fun! This experience has been one of my favorites this semester, and I do not regret taking the opportunity given! It’s been exactly what I needed this semester to get through my hectic life. I want to thank my friend for telling me about this amazing opportunity, and I wish my peers good luck for finals, and the best end of the semester!
