End of the Semester
This past semester has been my busiest so far. On top of working 25 hours a week and taking a full courseload, I was balancing friends, a boyfriend, and my recently relocated family. I love having people I love nearby, but it is an added time constraint. I am glad to see this semester end, although it does bring me closer to the ever-nearing end of college, which I am awaiting with equal parts dread and eagerness. I have no immediate plans to continue with my education. I will need to go to graduate school someday if I want to practice speech pathology, but for the next year at least, I plan to stay in Grand Rapids and find a job. I want a little more time with my loved ones here, and if I can get close to paying off my school loans, that would be great! Over Christmas break I hope to do a couple more blog posts looking back on the events of the past semester. Many events got lost in the shuffle of my busy life. I’d think to myself, “I have to blog about this!” and then it would be weeks later, I hadn’t blogged, and another blog-worthy happening would occur! So I’m going to try to get things caught up here in the next week or so while I’m out of school and have a bit more time.
