Fresh out of the oven:
Smiling - halyosy niconicocollabo.comSo I guess this is how the day before college starts
Will be together
It's that time of year again; new books, bags and pencilcases.
New friendships, acquaintances and professors.
Feelings of nervousness, anticipation and excitement,
Overwhelm us and prepare us for the future ahead
In an attempt to write a little poem very briefly explaining college from the point of view of a second-year college student, I ended up making myself worry more than before Honestly, I sometimes wonder when the mindset of an adult will start taking over my brain. I am going to college with people, some who are in their late 20s, and yet here I am with the mindset of a 12 year old. Nervousness? Anticipation? Excitement? I'm better off not worrying but concentrating on how I am going to survive the year. I have big hopes for what I want to accomplish, and I understand that last year wasn't exactly the best. But there's a reason to why people always enjoy a fresh start. It's a chance to redeem yourself, to show the world what you can do, what you are capable of and what the future ahead looks like.
Ever since highschool I already knew that I wanted to be graphic designer, so I should do what a graphic designer does and immerse myself into it like everyone else. I have the same passion as them to be successful in life, and this year is an important year to focus on. On tumblr, there was a quote I read that gave me so much hope this year, and it was this: "You can come back from academic probation and excel." because guess what? Here I am, proudly announcing to the world that I made a mistake and goofed off first year of college and got myself on Academic Probation without having to have anything to do with getting drunk, skipping class or getting myself into problems outside of college. That gives me, more than anything, hope that I can get back up on my feet with confidence and get that Academic Probation off and excel. I'm not the only one who failed two courses because I was just lazy and didn't hand in projects that worth more than I though it did, many people all over the world have experienced this, but that doesn't mean they can't also be the one who went from the bottom of the class to the top. And that is what this quote gives to me: hope. With that, nothing can break me down. End of story.
Hang in there! Ganbare! ^-^~
