Blog Post #12
So. This is the end. Or more accurately, an end. Or even more accurately, a few endings for me. This is my last required blog post for a certain class I’ve been taking, and it’s the end of my time at Simon Fraser University. Scary.
I’ve been doing my undergrad at SFU for the last 5 years. I started university in 2016, and I’m graduating in 2021. It still doesn’t feel long enough. How do you know if you’re ready to go out into the world and become a full-fledged adult? How do you become ready?
Being in university feels like having a safety net beneath you. No matter what, I knew I had something to go back to, to fall back on.
I took internships and had a great time knowing that if I didn’t like the job, well, at least it would be over in a few months. I learned so much, and I made some of the best friends possible, all while preparing for whatever career I’ll get.
I got to study abroad and live in Ireland and try it out as a student for a whole semester, far easier than it is to move outside on your own. During my trip, I visited four different countries and learned so much about my own competence and ability to do great things.
On top of all of those things, I’ve gotten to learn about blogging now, and been able to create my own blog. I like to think of myself as a creative person, and I like to learn new things, so I think blogging falls right into my area of expertise (if you could call it that). I just mean that I love finding new ways to express myself, and making this blog has made me realize even more about myself.
I think that creating this blog and discussing stories from my own life has made me realize that I can be interesting and funny, and that I’ve had some really relatable and fun experiences in my life, and that at least in the case of this blog, I have been the main character. I’m really proud of my blog so far, and I can’t wait to see where this goes, and what stories I’ll have in the future.
