So as of yesterday at 4:36pm I am officially done with my junior year of college! I honestly do not know where the time as gone. This was one of the best and most challenging year of my life. In August I started a new job and I did not know then but it would teach me a lot.
I started with a new family to watch their two year old daughter everyday Monday though Friday. I have always been a nanny/ babysitter but this took it to a whole new level. I spent every single day with a mini me. She was the most sassiest, funniest, caring little girl. Yes, she drove me crazy everyday but I would not have changed this experience for the world. It was very challenging at times because I was teaching and answering to a two year old that was beyond her years. It was also hard because I would be gone from 1:45-7pm Monday through Friday. Which might not seem like long but it was a huge adjustment from the pervious year. I still went to school before picking up my girl or worked for another family before and/ or after. My time to myself this past year was nothing maybe five hours a week no joke. It taught me a lot about time management and how to multitask along with many other valuable skills.
I did well in school both semesters. I made dean’s list my first semester and I’m still holding out for it this semester. I work really hard for my grades and I love my major so much. I am majoring in hotel restaurant management with an emphasis in sales and marketing and a business minor in marketing. It’s a heavy load but I would not have it any other way. I do not work well I have free time lol I need to be busy. I love bouncing from thing to thing to thing. It is the best feeling ever to be busy and be loving what you are doing. You also appreciate the quality time you actually get to spend with your friends and family!
This school year I also learned a lot about myself. I learned that I can do it. It might take some tears and a lot of hard work but I can do anything I set my heart to. I also learned it is okay to not have everything go my way. Everything happens for a reason. If something I really want did not work out I know there is a reason behind it. When I thought one door was closing this semester ten other doors opened up for me. I have everything I have ever wanted and even more.
I can not wait for this summer and my SENIOR year…. what? I cannot believe I am a senior now. Like I said I really do not know where the year has gone. It’s been real it’s been good bring it on summer.
