Today once again turned out to be another good day, even if it was not as eventful as the last three have been. I had my morning classes like usual, then during my break I had a lot of writing homework to do, which I almost didn’t finish, but I’m glad I was able to, then I had my afternoon/evening classes. For my film class we went to go see a Polish film at the theater entitled “Body/Ciało”, which tuned out to be pretty good.
It is amazing how fast time goes by, but especially the last five years or so. So much has changed in my life, including the person who I am. I have become the person whom I had always dreamed/wanted to be, because for a while I struggled with depression, but that’s all I’m willing to reveal at the moment.
I still can’t believe that tomorrow I will have officially have lived for a full two decades, which at this point, is sort of amazing to me. It seemed like just last month I was turning 18 or 16 or even 12. I also can’t believe that in a year from tomorrow I will be able to legally purchase and consume alcohol in the states.
Even the last year has been extremely eventful. First, I graduated high school, which as a freshman it seemed like senior year was so far away and that it would be a really long time before it was time for me to be a senior. But of course, freshman year went by extremely fast and each year after that seemed to go by faster than the last. Next, for my graduation present from my parents, I got to tour four different cities with my dad and sister over two weeks for our annual father-daughter “camping trip turned plain vacation”. My sister and I got to stay in Poland for an extra month after our trip and I had an amazing time at the language course that I attended through the same program that I am currently attending. Thirdly, I attended my local community college, even though I was literally dead set against the idea, while at the same time working at my local Meijer’s from November through a week and a half before leaving for my study abroad semester. And finally, now I am here, pretty much living my dream and studying something that I want to pursue further.
I also have many hopes for the coming year, including traveling more and studying psychology and the Polish language and culture at Benedictine College in the fall. If I have other dreams for the next year, then I have not completely realized it yet.
On a completely different note, I would like to take a week where I sort of go through what we do in each of my classes, but this week we have Thursday and Friday off and next week we have Monday and Tuesday off for Easter Break. In addition, the week after that I have midterms so I most likely won’t be able to do it that week. Basically I would have to do it the week of April 20-24, which would already be a full two months in the semester, but oh well, what can I do at this point.
That should be all for today. I’ll update again tomorrow after I get back from my third and final birthday dinner with a girl that I have gotten pretty close with. Coincidentally she just graduated last spring from Benedictine College and majored in psychology. She is basically the reason as to why I have decided to attend Benedictine, because up until this point I had really wanted to attend Spring Hill College, but I believe that God puts people in our lives for specific reasons, and not just to have random people in our lives. Once again, I can’t believe that tomorrow I will be 20 and how fast time flies, not only when you are having fun, but all the time.
