Today was officially my last first day of school ever! The last two years have been a wild ride, but I am overcome with joy that I decided to pursue this step in my career. In a little under a year I will graduate with my Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology and I couldn’t be more proud of myself for taking a leap of faith and moving away from my hometown, my parents, and everything that was familiar to me. I have learned so much over these last two years, things that I never would have learned if I had gone to school in Wisconsin.
I am both excited and nervous to see where my future takes me, but for now I am taking it all in stride. I am learning and obsorbing as much as possible from my internship experience and the seminar course I am taking both this semester and Spring 2018.
Self-care is going to be so important to me as I move forward through this transition to my last year of school along with my internship. Knitting is the most consistent hobby that I have as I try to knit each day for at least an hour. I enjoy reading but have not read as much as I would like to, so that is definitely something I need to pay attention to. Working out and eating healthy are two other aspects of my self-care that I need to work on as I tend to be lazy with both my exercise habits and eating habits.
What do you do for self-care? I’d love to hear about hobbies or activities that you have!
In other news… I have been working on getting my swap package together for my lovely Fibreshare partner.
I have also decided to participate in the Andrea Mowry What The Fade? Mystery Knitalong which begins tomorrow. I have never participated in a MKAL so I am excited to see how it goes! If you would like to see the fade I chose for this MKAL, head over to my instagram feed and check it out!
Thank you for sticking with me through this transition as I come into a new routine with my coursework and internship. I can’t tell you how much it means to me.
