We’re almost at the finish line, ladies and gentlemen. I began the final year of my college career (for now, I think…) a few weeks ago with both excitement and hesitancy. Quality friends, new projects to create, a Disneyland pass, and a refreshed mindset: this year will be a ton of fun. However, it’s the last time I’ll ever be anything less than an “adult.” After this year, it’s a whole new ballgame.
As I like to do, however, I’m taking this year into my own hands. I locked in an internship that I’ve been hoping for since July, and will finally get to be doing things I want to do (and yes, I get to stay at Paramount!). The classes I’m in right now are truly interesting and have kept me engaged. The two films I’m working on this semester are made with wonderful friends and have rad concepts.
It’s going to be a good year…no matter what happens.
Maybe it’s just me, but each school year starts with a fresh motivation to take it on with all of my heart. There’s something different this time around. I’m actually doing the things I want to do and being the person I am proud of. I have been feeling more “me” than I ever have. I’m not quite sure what exactly changed over the past few months, but I do feel more confident overall. There has been some healing over the summer, which has put me in the right mindset for the grand year ahead. More than anything, I think I’m able to see myself for who I am and who I want to be – and most of it is the same!
I apologize for my break towards the end of the summer. I also don’t want to make any promises right now for when things will come next, because this is the blog for me, too. The motivation is there, but I want to make sure I am being purposeful with my posts. As always, I’m doing the best that I can. With this blog, with my friends, family, school, and work.
This year has potential to say the very least, and I trust that it will unfold exactly how it’s meant to.
One thing is for sure, though: I’m going to make it count.
