There are only just over two months of work left to put towards my undergraduate degree. Three courses, thesis, graduate school applications, conference presentations, lab work, medical school interviews (I have two, so far. Words can’t even begin to explain how grateful/nervous/excited I am). Work. A dozen or so assignments. A semblance of a family/social life.
I am so, so in love with life right now.
Stress has, for the most part, given way to grace. I feel capable. Much less overwhelmed, particularly with a summer of simplicity on the horizon. Soccer, playing and coaching. A potential new job. Time to write and complete a novel. Two trips, one to Europe, the second to Africa. Weekend camping trips with friends. Perhaps even a music festival.
I’m most definitely feeling the crunch that mid-to-end of term brings – the entire month of March promises to be a particular challenge – but everything feels manageable.
Confidence in myself, in the universe. Grace upon grace.
To my family, friends, and partner: thank you all for your unwavering and continued support. It’s been a fantastic journey I’ve been so privileged to share with all of you. I can’t wait to see what these next months will bring.
