Journal Entry 12/06/18
Life is all about transitioning. You’ll be so close to being comfortable at a certain stage and then things take on into a new direction. As 2019 approaches I am facing transitions. Sometimes transitions are bad and sometimes they’re good, more times than not you really don’t have a clue what you’re getting into or what’s to come. No matter how many times I transferred as a child or the fact I’ve already been a college student for almost two years, I find it funny that I still have some of the same nerves going into UAB. 2019 is a year that a lot can happen. These next two years of my life determine so much. As I was leaving my new student orientation the other day, I had the feeling of “Life is getting real.” I had that same feeling when I started my freshman year of college. That feeling of “My life is finally starting.” But as I’m entering into my major’s core classes, my last two years of college, and seeing a projected graduation date of 2021. I find myself thinking how two years will fly by. What will I have accomplished? Where will I be? Will I have changed majors… dear Lord lets hope not. My time at my community college is coming to a close in matter of days as well as the year 2018. I don’t think that’s a coincidence. Looking back over the past year and a half, I feel like God was preparing me for this transition. Showing me I had what it took to succeed. So my “New Year’s Resolution” for this upcoming year is to push myself. Push through my limits, boundaries, and walls. I have high hopes. I can’t wait to look back and see where I was at this moment and where I will be. I’ve learned to love new beginnings and that “the good” comes from them.
