Try try again.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted and there’s definitely reason for that. With eight classes, a new job, and the extreme desire for summer to be here, there hasn’t been much free time. My thought behind the title of this post is that everyone, myself included, fails at a lot of things. Lately, I’ve been struggling to keep up with school work and have been extremely stressed about it. As I sat here cramming for tomorrow’s test, I realized I do this a lot. I should’ve learned from past experiences that the night before is not the time to start studying. But in the scope of the whole class, I always try harder the second time around. The first test of each class never goes well. The second one…a little better. The final? Obviously, it’s the most stressful. I always feel like I failed it and sure enough, I always do best on that test.
Life has thrown more than a few curveballs my way since I started college, yet here I am, less than ten months from graduating. I couldn’t be more excited to try everything I’ve wanted to do as a “grown-up.” Here comes the deep, philosopher-sounding part. If you don’t ask, the answer is always “No.” Life is for living and taking chances. For every time I have not and will not succeed at first, I will try one more time. I’ve always been the type of person to voice my opinion and go for what I want. Some people think I always get what I want, and I think the complete opposite (just ask my mom!). There are lots of things that I am blessed with and I am so grateful for that. There are other things that seem to be more of a challenge to have, but that’s all just part of the game of life!
Here’s to going for what you want and not letting anything stop you from getting it!
Countdown to summer…t-65 days! Countdown to the real season of summer…t-104 days!
