The new year is always exciting because it opens new beginnings but this year in 2019 the age of 22 is coming my way next month. My birthday is next month in February and I will be turning 22. I have come to the realization that I will certainly not being the 21 age range anymore where its the big birthday because you are turning the legal age. I will soon be entering the fun and serious parts of my 20's because I have goals to meet this year that include my future.
My goals for the upcoming age of 22 is complete all of my spring semester classes, graduate with my degree/public relations minor, and to get a job offer at a good company that works on public relations. You may be wondering what about relationships? Men are technically not on my list in 2019 because I am waiting for the right guy to meet me. I have learned that you do not need a boyfriend in college to be happy.
Young women out there that are single and don't have a boyfriend at the moment, it is okay you are not in a relationship right now. There is a reason that dating exists so we can find out what we like and don't like. A lot of big life events will happen when I turn 22 next month which are graduating college in May, job interviews/offers, and more. I may not know what my future holds this year but I already feel good about it.
One of my favorite quotes I have looked up to during my life of being 21 is "I've reached a point in my life where I find it no longer necessary to try to impress anyone. If they like me the way I am, great. If they don't it's their loss... not mine" (Anonymous). I think that 21 has been full of adventures. I was able to study abroad, figured out what I wanted to do career-wise, and many more but this upcoming age of 22, I am ready to see what it has in store for me. I don't know what 22 will be yet but I am looking forward to it and to move on from being 21.
In 2018, I had some highs and lows. The highs were traveling abroad, completing my fall semester of senior year, joining the Arizona Student Public Relations Society of America, and a lot more but I do believe it was a tough year as well. I feel that once people start moving forward with their 20's, they start to feel more appreciative of what they have in their lives. I feel very appreciative that I was able to attend a great four-year college at the University of Arizona. The university has taught me a lot and it may be sad that this spring semester is my last semester at the U of A but I know when I turn 22, there will be a lot more exciting things happening in my life. Lastly, I am going to make this upcoming last semester of mine count before I leave Tucson. Bear Down.
