Wow! I don't know about everyone else, but this fall semester has really gotten me beat! I honestly really feel that I learned and grew so much as a person this year. I learned things about myself that I truly value and I also know not to study on my bed anymore. I am going to take all the things that I learned and apply it positively to next semester.
I feel like often times, I have to look back at the person I was when I was a little girl because that girl I knew, had so much passion and determination. And it's not to say that I don't have motivation, it's just that sometimes, I lose sight of what I really want and get distracted. My older sister, Chaoy, told me that college is an experience that I can use to learn how to put distractions aside and just focus. I believe that is something I have been struggling with this semester and I hope I can learn the tricks on how to do it soon!
My plan for next semester is to stay more organized. I plan to make a huge poster of my goals to remind me everyday what I need to be focusing on. I mean to you, it might seem like I'm all work, and no play, but for me, this is fun! I enjoy working towards my goals and I love school and all the great opportunities that come with it!
Like many people I know, I won't be actually taking time off to relax during winter break. I am trying to obtain 60 hours of shadowing my dentist and orthodontist in a week and a half before I go back to Simmons. I am also enrolled in the two-week World Challenge; Living on the Edge of Poverty winter course at Simmons in January! (I will blog more about this in another entry.)
I am applying to many pre-dental summer programs and summer research experiences for undergraduates during the winter; I wanted to try this new thing where I don't do too many things at once, but I don't think I'm making much of an effort to really do that. I really hope things work out!
