As I am writing this to all of you I am sitting on my couch with my mom who is sick with a horrible cough. I am drinking a smoothie and watching Long Island Medium in my comfies. I am going to start doing this every sunday; sitting down and writing to all of you about whatever it is that I feel like talking about. I decided on Sundays because I feel that it is the perfect day. It is the end of the weekend and a day to rest and relax but it is also the beginning of a new week and a new chance to have a great week and do great things. I guess that you could call it a transition day.
This whole week has actually been a week of thoughtful transition and change for me actually. So let’s talk about that. Being in college/having a major verses actually knowing what you want to do in life are two very different things. I went into my university thinking that I wanted to do one thing and once it became more real that that is what I could be doing for the rest of my life, I realized that that wasn’t what I wanted. It brought up a lot of emotion in me, which is a bit unusual (because I’m not a super emotional person, i.e. my mom calls me hard hearted hannah haha).
It was kind of hard for me to just sit there and think, “Well what am I going to do? Where do I go from here?” I am someone who thinks things and doesn’t think too far in the future at that moment, I just think about that moment and what I can do in that moment. I kind of work myself up when I shouldn’t. It’s not necessarily a good thing but I am working on not being that way and just taking a breathe and taking it all in and moving forward. Realizing that some things I can’t change in this moment and accepting that.
And because I am going to be graduating in the next year, it’s hard having that realization that I will be out of school and going into the real world, and being confused and unsure about all that is hard.
Am I ready? Yes
But does it scare me a little bit? Obviously
But I think that this is something that a lot of college students deal with. That realization that the life you’ve been living as a student for the past seventeen or so years is going to come to an end and you’ll be starting an entirely new chapter. My advice for other people going through this is to take a breathe and take your time and talk it out. I personally am taking the summer and really thinking about what I want to do and really evaluate the next steps and the path that I want to take. But I want to stress something that I have just realized…

It is okay not to know. It is okay to try new things and figure out what it is you want in life and it is okay not to follow the norm or do what others expect you to do. Do what makes you happy, not what makes the biggest paycheck.
Well now that I have thoroughly rambled on for a while I will end this here. I hope that you guys have enjoyed this post and stay tuned every Sunday for your Sweet Sunday. Any questions that you guys have or would like me to talk about just leave me a comment. Have a wonderful week and…
May the worst of your today’s be the best of your tomorrow’s
