As another university year comes to an end, its always nice to look back at the good, the bad, to reflect and consider what I would’ve done differently. I can honestly say this year was a great year academically wise, I was able to learn from my mistakes and do my best at not leaving things ‘till last minute (sometimes you just can’t help it). I’m at a very good place with both of my jobs and I’m thankful that I’ll be working at both places this summer. I also hadn’t thought of meeting new people, but I met a lot of people during my second year, people during frosh, during classes and even just around campus. For those people I truly hold this new friendship dear, and to my friends that have always been there I’m glad you’ve stuck by :) My highlights of this year would have to be frosh, pub events, and birthdays, these were the times I really got to hang out with friends.
Thoughts of second year and what I would’ve done differently: try to have more time, unfortunately with the amount of work I have I wasn’t able to spend a lot of time with my roommates and I really regret that. I’ve also become to be passive aggressive, and that’s not something I value. For next year I will learn from these mistakes.
Also to do more readings.
Thoughts of third year: I’m happy that I’m on track with my credits, and for the first time since grade 9, I will not be taking a summer course, which I find extremely weird, but at the same time thankful so that I can work a lot more. Also I’m going to be moving into a house with two great guys and I’m very excited for this, we get our house next week. I would like to also become closer with friends that I’ve drifted from this year :)
and always try harder in school of course… damn readings
