Sorry for the random personal journal but I wanted to write this to give myself closure.
Today was my last final and now I'm finally (mostly) free for summer! I started college off strong in the fall semester, but somewhere along the line this semester my mental health spiraled out of control and my GPA was brutally murdered. It's so hard to not beat myself up over my mistakes but shit happens and I'll just have to use what I've learned to make my future school performance better. And for something to look forward to, my dad is in town to help me move home for summer and tomorrow we're going apartment shopping for fall! While living on campus had many benefits, I didn't have a comfortable place to study and take time for myself. I've made many great friends over this year, but living in the same building as all of your friends really tests your self control to study. Aside from just my mental health being a mess, I couldn't handle the temptation and therefore had terrible time management skills. I just hope I stay true to my word and use this mess of a semester as learning experience instead of just digging myself into a deeper hole. Now's finally the time to catch up on the sleep that I've been losing and start moving forward.
