As I reflect on the month of September, I am reminded to take a moment to slow down. It’s hard to believe the month is already coming to a close. I shouldn’t have exams already. It seems too soon still, because it doesn’t feel like we have been in school long enough. But looking back on all that happened this month, I realize that a lot has happened.
My month has been filled with football games and school work. We celebrated my close friend, Bridget’s, 21st birthday! The Badgers rocked the football field. I made new friends in my classes and through other friends. My roommates and I even tried to make friends with some of our neighbors (I’m not sure how successful that was). I worked–A LOT! And I met a few of my new coworkers, even if I might have already embarrassed myself in front of them.
In the height of my stress over school, I kept looking at the pack of unopened “Thank You” cards sitting on my desk. These cards provided a reminder that even though I haven’t taken a lot of time lately to realize it, I have a lot to be grateful for.
What I am thankful for this month:
- Great friends and family
- My health
- The new people I have met and the bonds that have grown stronger with friends
- My job (and my coworkers)
- My position as a managing editor for Her Campus-Wisconsin
- Finally having a concept for one of my major projects in my production class (shoutout to my friends who helped give me many ideas in this process)
- My roommates
- Our awesome house
