College Chronicles: Second semester finished...
You have completed the spring semester and your first year of college!
You made an A in English, an A in Library Intro, a B in History, and a C in Math.
Even though you didn't make a 4.0 GPA for your second semester (you did the first semester), you should still be proud of yourself. You should be proud of the two A's. You should be proud of making a B in a condensed History course. And, you should be proud of working hard on math, realizing you needed extra help, meeting with a tutor towards the end of the semester, and making a passing grade. Be thankful.
You are taking the summer off to rest. You need the rest. Remember, it is more important to stay in good health than to try to meet the pattern of society by finishing college as fast as possible. Don't rush. Work hard, but don't rush. You need the rest after all that has been going on these past few months and after your first full year of college. Look how far you've come! You studied for and passed the GED just last spring. You didn't even know if you could handle going to college or how you would do. Yet, here you are, finished with your first full year of college and in a good place health wise. You carried 12 hours each semester. You worked hard. Now it is time to rest. You also need the time to rest and to prepare for the fall semester. You have an exciting fall semester ahead! (And, you can't wait to share a bit of news with others soon in regards to the fall!) Take this time to rest, grow, and prepare. Deep breath, give thanks for this year.
Enjoy this summer! Enjoy the time with family, time to rest, creativity, swimming, sunshine, and many other things. And, take time to write here on the blog more regularly.
