The winter months were pretty difficult for me this year. This semester has felt like the semester from Hell. I’m pretty sure I had more emotional and mental breakdown in the past ten weeks than I had in my past two years of college combined. This semester also put a serious amount of strain and tension on my relationship with my boyfriend. It was rough, and I was ready to give up multiple times. I often felt like the light at the end of the tunnel was miles away.
But. One week and I am done with my junior year of college. (Though, technically, when the credits from this semester are submitted, I will be considered a first semester senior starting the final semester …!) I was inducted into Psi Chi International Honor Society for Psychology this past week. I have been asked by my adviser to join his research team. I have a couple of amazing trips coming up in the summer. And, it’s finally beginning to look and feel like spring on campus.
I have made it through, and I am happy.
It’s been awhile since I’ve compiled things that make I feel are beautiful, and make me happy.
“Think of all the beauty left still around you and be happy.” – Anne Frank
This list is small, I know. But when I have been reaching for beauty this semester, these are the few things I clung to.
I would also like to note, that since I am at the end of the semester and am able come up for air, I am prepping a load of posts. I have missed posting, and writing, and exploring this aspect of my creativity. I have learned, and grown a lot these past few months, and I am so dang ready to get back to this hobby. When school is officially over, I am going to aim to create a posting schedule, so stay tuned for that.
Thanks for hanging out 🙂
Ciao for now!
