Ohhhh October, where have you gone?
As I compare my happiness level after two months in my new city and home to what my happiness level was many months ago, I have realized that they are totally and completely incomparable. Where I was at months ago, I would have never thought that I would end up where I am, feeling the way I feel.
The month of September was a new awakening and new journey for myself, figuring out my new surroundings and finding my place. However, the true test came this month. Midterms hit, and they hit hard. Harder than I ever would have expected due to my past experience at my old university. But I was able to find the strength and was really able to prove to myself just how hard of a worker I actually am. Although the atmosphere is super competitive, this is exactly what I wanted and I wouldn’t really want it any other way.
As for myself personally, I really pushed myself this month to stick true to who I am and just have a good time, in all honesty. With college as demanding as it is, it’s easy to let school take a hold on you and to drain you of who you are. Considering I had such a busy schedule (you should see my planner), I was determined to make sure that I didn’t let it get me down too much. Yes, every college student has mental breakdowns (and if you haven’t ever had one, I really question you), but I wanted to make sure that I was able to stay sane and be myself through it all.
Two months down, roughly 19 more to go.
