Wow has it been a hot minute since I have updated everyone on things going on my in my life. I like to keep my blog about things related to lifestyle, fashion, and beauty, but sometimes a little update is good! With school starting today, I thought it would be fun to let you all know what my semester and just general life looks like right now. So, without further ado, here is a little life update for ya!
Can we just take a second and let it sink in that today is the first day of my senior year in college….WHUT?! It makes me sad thinking about it. College is seriously the best time of your life so live it up while you can.
Anyway, like I said this is the first day of my senior year which means I am student teaching full time now! I have been looking forward to student teaching for a long time and I am so excited because I love the teacher I am working with. I actually already knew her from last semester when I observed her teaching for one of the classes I was taking. We got along so well that she asked me to be her student which is so, so sweet. When my professor approached me about being her student I literally cried I was so excited (talk about embarrassing though). At my university, we do two semesters of student teaching with each semester being in a different setting. For me, that means that I will be in a first grade classroom in the fall and then I got accepted into the local children’s hospital education program for the spring semester. When the spring semester rolls around, I will be going to the hospital every day and working on the Heart / Transplant unit working with kiddos who are too sick to go to school. Getting into this program is such an honor because only one student is taken a semester and I am lucky enough to be that student! I will make sure to give frequent updates when that happens. Other than student teaching, I do have to take three night classes on Wednesdays which means I will go straight from school to class on Wednesdays. Someone please send coffee to help me make it through 😅
Since student teaching and classes isn’t enough for me I am also going to try and work four days a week & be on the executive board for my sorority during the fall semester….I promise I am not crazy! Okay, maybe I am a little bit for packing it on this semester but it’ll be fine. Honestly, I don’t really have a choice on these two things. I need to work because I am financially independent (as much as I can be) and my exec term isn’t over until the end of the fall semester. I am excited for the amazing things that my sorority has going on though, one of them being this giant celebration our chapter is throwing since we are turning 120 years old! That is yet another thing I am heading up because honestly, I don’t think I am busy enough as it is. Between that and the three philanthropy events this semester we are hosting, I am sure to be running in a hundred different directions. I’m not too worried though, I thrive under pressure and having a million things on my plate. I mean it, it’s like a hidden talent of mine.
As for everything else in my life, I have no complaints. I have a wonderful boyfriend who is doing amazing things of his own and friends I would go to war with. I am currently living in a house with five other girls and my two pups and I couldn’t be happier. Having six girls in a house will be insane I’m sure but hey, insanity can be fun sometimes. I am so excited to get the school year started and it is my goal to be as present as possible with things on campus / in my sorority since it is my last year here. I so easily get caught up with working a lot that I miss out on things and I don’t want that to happen. So, I am saying it now, I will be present in what is happening now and not let myself get caught up in work! I’ll continue to grow the blog and the amazing things I want to do with it and continue to make it better for all of you. This little blog brings me so much happiness and I want to continue to make it better. If there is anything specific you want to see, lemme know!
So, like I said before, I will be present this year and soak up every last minute there is. It’s my last year and I am finding myself to be very sentimental about it. Grateful as well for all of the amazing experiences I have had while in school and for the people I have met. College is amazing, don’t let it go by to fast.
