Spring quarter is in full swing (or should I say, full bloom? The cherry blossoms are, at least!), and this weekend I definitely spent my time playing catch-up with all the homework I didn’t do during the first week. I also finally saw Love, Simon with my best friend and oh wow, it was absolutely adorable and probably one of my favorite movies this year. Nick Robinson did such an amazing job playing Simon. I have to say I liked the book more (under a different title, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda!), but the movie was seriously so CUTE.
This week has still been pretty crazy since I’m still interviewing with a few accounting firms, but it’s all fun since they include social events usually the night before the interview. For example, tonight I’ll be going go-kart racing for the first time!
Anyway, today I felt like catching up with y’all since it’s the beginning of the quarter and I just have a lot of thoughts running through my head.
from before spring break when the weather was so nice – sun, please come back!
I have to admit, I’m feeling pretty overwhelmed about this quarter. Earlier last week, I actually had a mini break down because I was looking through my calendar for the upcoming months and I felt like EVERYTHING IS HAPPENING AND I HAVE NO TIME FOR ANYTHING. Luckily, my good friend was able to calm me down because she knows I can handle it. And she is right: I’m good at staying on top of things and prioritizing. It’s one of my best skills.
One of the things I was really overwhelmed about is actually becoming President for one of the business clubs I’m part of on campus. So exciting! But also so much planning and meeting new people and managing. I haven’t been a president for something since my senior year of high school, and while I told myself that I would take things off my plate for my senior year of college, here I am. I thrive off of opportunity, I really do. It’s one of things I’ve learned about myself: I love trying new things to push my comfort zone so I can learn in different ways. I’m pretty excited about my team, and it’s going to be a great learning experience.
I don’t know about you, but back when I was in high school, it took me awhile to find my solid group of friends. It wasn’t until about midway through junior year that I felt like I had my people. Now in college, I feel the same way. Freshman and sophomore year, I didn’t really have my group of people, but now I’m really happy with who I’m surrounding myself with. I have a support group, and it’s an amazing feeling. These are people that I truly feel like will be my life-long friends.
trying Five Guys for the first time over spring break. i definitely like In-n-Out the most, but this was great bang-for-buck.
This post is all over the place today, but I just feel like I’m in a good place right now and even though this quarter will get tough sometimes, a positive attitude (and a little coffee, haha) will get me through anything. I’ve been waking up before 8am every day last and this week, and I’m not sure if that’s been helping, but I feel like I’m in control of my life this quarter, if I have the right outlook.
How do you feel about spring?
