I often feel a sense of dread when people ask me about the future. I’m not some genie or fortune teller, eager to tell stories of the upcoming year with ease and laughter. I am the girl who is more afraid of the unknown than I am afraid of most things.
It's spring break for UVA students, and I've been spending it by volunteering at middle schools, tutoring kids. It's the middle of the semester - spring 2020. Feelings - it's all going by so quickly.
Hey friends! This blog post is about my past weekend spent in Indiana at the Kelley Business School for a case competition representing UVA.
As many college students are about to begin their journey of higher education, I thought it would be nice to provide some ideas of things for them to do before going off to their university and starting college in the fall.
I’m currently in my 3rd week in my 2nd semester of first year. It’s the most unreal thing to be back and yet it feels as natural as ever (if that makes any sense). This month my music taste kind of reverted to my high school self. For most of high school. I really liked rock and pop punk - Pierce the Veil and Evanescence. Similar to my 2018 self (so far away), I’ve listened to worship and but I’ve been loving Boston Manor and My Epic - just really cool bands at the moment. I’ve even gotten back into listening to Tonight Alive. Anyway, here's my life update!
I absolutely love New Year's! There’s something about having a fresh start and knowing that everyone gets a do-over, some motivation to get started on those dreams we lose in the day to day life. Some people hate New Year's because they feel like they never get to their dreams. But to me, everyone acknowledges that we all need a clean slate after some pretty rough days.
We like to believe all of our dreams are really best for us, but honestly, the expectations we put on ourselves can be harmful. I thought coming into college I’d still be an amazing A student. That dream was just not for me.
