I am a very big goal setting kinda gal. Here on the blog, I’ve gushed about my love for planners and other goal setting tools which I need to keep focused during my year. I’m a classic Enneagram 7 (which if you haven’t taken the test I highly recommend it) which means I am notorious for starting projects and not finishing them. I never thought I’d be a “Word of the Year” person because it isn’t a tangible goal and it is a COMMITMENT. I mean one whole word for 365 days?! Nope.
It is finals week at Wofford!!! Always a great time. My week isn’t as crazy as some of my friends as I have two papers due and two written tests so it isn’t as awful as it could be. However last night I sat on the phone with my mom and was reflecting on my stress. I was trying to figure out what really has kept me afloat and one big thing was my quiet time. In high school, I began journaling and somehow, not sure really how I’ve been able to keep that going. I’ve treasured my journals throughout high school and in my time here at Wofford I’ve filled up almost six little happy books.
I’ve taken Spanish now for four years and love it. My Spanish professor this past semester sent me a link to a scholarship offered by my school. I applied, I’m a “yes girl” which means literally any opportunity that ends up in my inbox I say yes to. A curse and a blessing. Anyways. 4 essays and forms later the words “Congratulations…” ended up in my inbox.
