It seems like just yesterday I was moving into college for freshman year orientation. But at the same time, I feel that I was also just leaving my house in the morning for my first day of first grade. In just one short month, I will be packing up all my belongings for one last time as I move out of my house and into school for my final year of school. While it seems like a breeze now, after doing it for three years, this time is different, as this will be the last. With both excitement and nervousness overcoming me, I find myself not knowing what to expect. In less than one year, I will be done with college. I will have my degree and will be starting the rest of my life. But it is that one last school year that I am focusing on now. Here are my hopes for my senior year of college.
For starters, I want my senior year to be the most memorable year. My first three years of college were nothing but memorable, making friendships, traveling the world, and growing myself. But I want my senior year to be different. Unlike the first three years, I want to focus more on me and not other people. I want to do just what makes me happy. I no longer want to worry about what others think or want, but instead, focus on myself. I want to only have positive relationships and friendships. I do not want to let negative people bring me down. I do not want to ponder over why people wrong me or upset me, but instead, accept the things that I cannot change and move on. I want to focus on my studies, taking everything I can from the education being offered to me and retaining that. I want to build relationships that will last me a lifetime, instead of ones that have an expiration date. And on top of all of that, I want to have fun.
As I gear up to move back into school, I am hopeful for the future. I can hold my head up high knowing that I will continue to strive to be the best that I can be. I will focus on things that hold importance to me and my well-being and not on things that have no relevance to my life. I am hopeful that this year will prepare me for my future and guide me into the right direction to allow me to be successful, happy and ready for the rest of my life.
To my senior year of college: please bless me with my hopes and dreams for my final year. Please give me the strength to let things go that I cannot change and instead put my energy and time into building my future. Please fill my time with memories that I will keep with me forever. Please make this be the best year yet.
