It is my last semester here at Fontbonne. It is starting to kick in that I will be starting a new adventure after this. I have grown since I transferred here — about myself and about others that I care about. Here is a list of things that I have discovered since I began here.
- i can trust my friends
- when you are taking a class with Dr. Sommer, you have to give a lot of details
- teaching is not for me, but writing is for me
- enjoy the little things in life, like walking to Walgreens or Bread Co on a nice day instead of driving
- having hope is a good thing to have
- teachers want to help you graduate
I began thinking about what will happen after December, which is kind of scary for me. Here is another list of things, only this is what I want to accomplish.
- see the last The Hobbit movie
- adopt a beagle
- get a job
- kick off living on my own with one of my best friends
I have decided that my goal for this semester is to just do better. What I mean is that i want to do better in classes, do better at work, just be better overall in my entire life. If I’m doing something I want to put all my effort into, in turn creating a better body of work for myself so everyone can see it. What I truly want to accomplish is the feeling that I did everything I could to make a better life for myself.
So you ask how I will get there right? Well all i can do it get up every morning and put effort into any and everything. Nothing beats a fail but a try! I will be better because I will try everyday and because I believe in myself. I will become a better me.
Chuc mung nam moi!!! Translation: Happy Lunar New Year!!! Or Chinese, hehe.
Hello, again, everyone. I hope you’re all happy and healthy out there! Things have been pretty okay lately for me. Well, except for the bitter coldness not too long ago…I have never been so impatient for spring to come! But I’ll deal with it. Be patient, young one…Sure.
Anyways, I have actually made some new decisions this year. They’re not really “new year’s resolutions” but more of letting myself explore and experience new things. Well, I have been doing that but I’ve been talked to about being a little more selfish–to take care of myself more.
I may have mentioned before about working with my mom all the time, but this year, I need to work for myself. As a ceramics major, I need to expand my experiences. Therefore, I will apply for an internship! Where, you may ask? I don’t have a specific place in mind yet, but I have options. That will be updated later. I will also work on more individual projects to show my techniques and prepare myself for a show (taking place in March). I’m determined to make extraordinary things and hope people will appreciate it.
Another thing is to take things slowly this time. Last semester was almost a nightmare. I said almost because I did have fun and gained new friendships and opportunities, so I can’t complain too much. This semester, I want to be more relaxed and not stress over too many things. I would also want my fellow Fontbonnies to relax and just take each day slowly; cherish every moment. I know, how cliche is that? But it’s really true!
Life is precious. Yes, there are crazy people and things out there, but let’s be happy that we have what we have and please, don’t take them for granted. Take care!
