Hi and updates :)

Hi, sorry (again) for being away from wordpress for a few months! I don’t really have a good excuse lol, I guess just that school was busy. Don’t count on me to be reliable!

Good news! I GRADUATED COLLEGE!!! 🙂 🙂 Woo hoo!! This is very exciting! I am proud of this because it really was a LOT of hard work, and I struggled a lot during that time. There were many times that I wanted to drop out, or thought I would fail… but I didn’t! I got through it all!!

I have gotten to celebrate with family and friends, which was very nice. 🙂

I was living on campus this past semester, and I am now living back at home with my family again. The transition is hard, and I don’t really want to be at home. I was having a lot of fun with my friends in person, and people were only just starting to get vaccinated, when I had to leave it all behind. I’m sad and angry about that.

My plan is to get a job or internship for this summer. I don’t have one yet. I didn’t end up taking that job that I wrote about earlier.

I had a pretty good semester, actually. One of my best. My social life, grades, interest in classes, independence, and mental health were all probably the best they’ve been out of all my semesters. This makes it even more sad and frustrating that I had to leave. I was really doing so well. It also makes me sad for all the time on campus that I lost due to covid.

The only major bad thing about this semester is that my health issues continue to worsen. My joint pain is still bad. My hands were hurting to the point that I didn’t want to / couldn’t take notes in class for the first time because of the pain. Dancing was difficult. My doctor thinks my gut/abdomen issues could be endometriosis. I had to go to the ER once. But I’m getting things checked out. I’m going to try a hormonal birth control for the reproductive system issues and hope it doesn’t make me depressed.

I think those are all my updates. 🙂 I will try to be a little more present on wordpress…

This is supposed to be me graduating! 🙂 My school’s colors are not pink and purple haha, I wish!

    1. Thank you!! 🙂

      Okay, that’s good to know! I’ve mainly heard bad stories about birth control haha so that’s encouraging. I haven’t started it yet because I’m scared, and I’m also not good at swallowing pills. But maybe I’ll start it today…

  1. College graduation is forever. You earned it and it is real

    Hope you stick to your values as you are able. Working for money caused us many values conflicts.

    Younger Child is about to graduate high school and go to college far, far away. What strange times we live in

    1. Thank you!! Yeah! It doesn’t feel real sometimes. Like, I’m not going back to school in the fall. I’m strangely free. It’s weird.

      Thanks, that’s a good reminder to stick to my values. Hmm, I haven’t thought about that. I’m glad you know what you value

      Wow!! Congrats in advance to Younger Child! That’s a big deal. Most of my extended family is graduating from various things and moving across the country. Many of my friends are taking jobs in far away places too. It feels like everyone is just scattering to the wind. I don’t like it. It’s a big change

      1. Indeed! That’s a good point that this is the way it is in our world today. Maybe for hunter-gatherers, there were more gradual shifts instead of distinct phases.

        I’m living with a new roommate now!! 🙂
