It’s been just over a month of life as an official student here and I feel as if I have really settled into my role. I am relishing the experiences presented to me, be it service projects, meeting new people, or going to movies at Gateway. These several weeks have taught me that keeping organized and staying focused are two very important practices to master. Had I studied for my upcoming math midterm a little sooner in the week, I probably wouldn’t be up this late on a Sunday night (technically now a Monday morning) typing this. You live and you learn, I suppose.
That being said, I believe that this will be a good thing for me to go through as I typically adjust well when faced with challenges. While this one could easily have been prevented, it is nobody’s fault but my own for putting myself in this situation. Likewise, the only person that can do anything about this is me. I plan to learn from my mistakes and move forward, working hard along the way to become better at whatever it may be.
Although obstacles can be difficult to overcome, I am the type of person to embrace the difficulties of life and take them on. I am grateful to go through this now so I can learn and grow as a student.
