Today is my last official day of summer.
I remember my last day of school last year, thinking to myself how long a four month summer seemed. But it flew by in a flash and now it’s over.
Normally, school is something that has just always been there. Going back to school each year has never really evoked any strong emotions in me. But this time around, I have been feeling pretty nervous the closer back to school comes up.
This year is my last year. When I made my schedule last spring, I made a couple errors, which pushed back my graduation date. By some sort of crazy coincidence, I managed to get a spot in the two classes I needed as prerequisites for two other classes I can take next semester. That also means I will be in five classes each semester, which is technically normal, but I’ve only ever taken four classes each semester. So I’m scared I’m going to be very overwhelmed and struggle really hard.
I guess I can’t (and shouldn’t) sike myself out because I literally haven’t even started classes yet. I’m just going to keep reminding myself that this is the last push. I feel like the fact that I randomly checked the courses, and there just so happened to be one spot left in each class I needed, should be a good sign that this is what was meant to be. If you believe in that kind of stuff.
As I look back on my summer, I’m very grateful. I can’t help but smile because I got the chance to do so much in those four months. I made new friends, I got a new job, I went to the concerts of some of my favourite artists ever, I celebrated new milestones, I experienced fun and exciting things, cross items off my bucket list and I got to travel with my best friends and the love of my life! I have nothing to complain about this summer.
If you’re reading this, I hope your summer was as eventful as mine was. And if you’re going back to school – best of luck to the both of us! Let’s make the best of the remaining months of 2017. Stay strong, focused and determined. Let’s achieve these goals together yall! We got this.
