Why is it that every single second semester of each year of college I’ve experienced has been full of changes? Second semester my freshmen year I met my first long term boyfriend, second semester sophomore year I had a ton of things change regarding my family that have no bearing on the internet, and second semester this year, I saw that long term relationship end.
All of these are things I never thought would happen, things I never saw coming. I’ve never been good at dealing with bad changes. Adaptability is something I desperately need to work at, because I have this tendency to become a creature of whatever routine I’ve developed. After the break up, dealing with the holes in my routine was almost as bad as missing the guy was.
Luckily, there is something I’ve learned from all this, which is that I am more than capable of getting by, of surviving whatever is thrown my way. (And some of it was pretty awful at the time.) For me, surrounding myself with awesome people is the easiest way to make sure I can keep going, keep pushing ahead even when it’s hard.
The next year is going to be full of huge changes, in both my personal and professional lives, I know this. And for the first time, I’m sure that I’ll be able to handle whatever comes up. In spite of all the bad that’s happened in the last month, I’ll always be grateful for that particular revelation.
Anyway, sorry to get all philosophical on you guys. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately, and I think that’s where this came from.
