To give a little background info, I'll let you in on a little something: before this school year, I had awful anxiety. It's my last year of college, I left the comfort of my best friends and family, I moved into my sorority house, and I was on edge. We're talking level 10 anxiety here. I was uncertain as to what my surroundings would be in every area of my life.
Luckily, this has been one of my best semesters! I'm always surrounded by good company, including my roommate and suitemate and my close friends here. Living in my sorority house is a lot less stressful than I thought, in fact, it's pretty great. I always have someone to go out or stay in with, and I'm never by myself. Also...there's free food, like, all the time--total bonus.
I'm doing well in all of my classes....well....almost all of them. Comm Law is kicking my butt, but for some reason I'm very zen about the whole situation? Weird, but true. I'm expecting all A(-)s and HOPEFULLY one C in Comm Law. Crossing my fingers on that one. I think I may even be able to pull off getting on the dean's list! I'm doing awesome in my reporting class, which makes me feel so confident in my decision to be a reporter. This is my "thing," the thing I'm really good at. I get a crazy amount of compliments in that class for some reason, and it makes me feel fantastic.
I think one of my greatest confidence boosters has been getting an internship at WSLS. If I'm this happy before I intern, I can't believe how happy I'm going to be while actually interning. I am so proud of myself and it just makes me feel so successful. :')
To top it all off, I'm leaving Blacksburg tomorrow for Thanksgiving break! I haven't seen my family in 3 months, and I' can't wait to see my mom, my best friends, and my dogs. The more I think about it, the more excited I get.
All in all, life is good. I honestly can't remember the last time I've felt this happy, and I can't complain. :)
Until next time,
