Hey guys! Welcome back. I always love doing these semester reflections because they allow me the opportunity to reflect on where I have been and what I have accomplished throughout the semester. Reflections help me see how much I have grown and how I can continue to grow in the future. So today I wanted to share with you my semester reflection for this past semester.
I came to notice this semester that even though I faced a lot of challenges and had many struggles, there were only a few times that my depression and anxiety peaked. I was surprisingly less stressed than I ever have been before. I found that I was much more calm in situations that normally would have made me more emotional. I think that has a lot to do with the people that I have surrounded myself with and the support that I have had this semester.
I did really well this semester in terms of grades. I didn’t procrastinate nearly as much as I have in the past. I motivated myself and pushed through despite the difficulties early in the semester. I dealt with many challenges and had a lot going on, but I still managed to complete everything and do well. In that way, I am proud.
I made several new friends this semester. I can’t believe how much I have grown and how open I have become. I absolutely believe in the power of surrounding myself with people who lift me up instead of bring me down. One of the things I dread about going home for the summer is the fact that I will not be surrounded by people who lift me up. I miss the people who encourage me to be myself and grow into the best version of myself. I look forward to returning in the Fall so I can see them again.
I am a very ambitious person, so naturally a lot of things happened this semester. I started to grow my brand and expanded my business ventures. I don’t accept failure or defeat until I simply can’t go anymore. I look forward to seeing where that will go.
This semester, I finished my first year as an RA. I will talk more about this in a later post, but I just wanted to say that I am so thankful I have had this opportunity. It stretched me to be the very best version of myself and showed me that I am capable of more than I often give myself credit for. I chalk this up as a success for the semester.
