From the first day of junior year to one of the last (with my big who I am going to miss so much! I’m not letting her leave)… Y’all. I am officially a senior! That doesn’t even sound real to me and I’m still getting over the shell shock of it all. I feel like just yesterday I was moving into to the good old no AC dorm and now I’m about to enter my final year at JMU. Where has the time gone?
I feel like every year (and let’s be real everyday) I am learning something new. Whether that be a new meal to make (quesadillas on a panini press are a game changer) or a new topic in class to little life lessons from friends, I am constantly being taught and molded.
I thought I would share a couple tidbits of information that I have learned this year that might be able to help some of you out…
- It’s ok to not be ok. Crying is also welcome.
- Bottling up your feelings and thoughts will just lead to an explosion of them at once and lots of tears.
- Say yes and spend time with people. You have so much more time to do assignments than you think. People will also make more time for you if you make more time investing in a relationship with them.
- Also on that note, relationships are REALLY important. Do not push off spending time with your friends or you’ll regret it later. Also, love so hard on your family because they will always have your back (and will wake up just to talk on the phone).
- Trust that God’s plan is good, even when you are confused on what you are supposed to learn from it.
Those are some lessons I learned this year. Other random things I learned about or how to do…
- Drive an ambulance.
- Learn how to assess and help a patient.
- Cook zucchini noodles. Also learned how to cook without following a recipe and just going with what I think works together and no measuring.
- A crap ton of medical Spanish vocab as well as about the US healthcare system and health theories for changing behaviors.
- How to run a blog (well maybe still working on this but better content to come this summer when I have time to take pictures!)
These were just really random things (and honestly not sure if they made any sense) I can remember with my brain being a little dead from finals week. I know I experienced so many opportunities and periods of growth this past year. I hope to be able to apply things I have learned and overall work towards the plan God has for me in the future. So many fun things happened over these two semesters and I am so grateful for the people that influenced my life.
Now onto a summer organic chemistry class! The work never stops but here’s to knowing how important all of it will be one day! Thank goodness for a short break before this Maymester though!
What little wisdoms or how to’s did you learn over the past couple of months?
