Hard to believe four months have passed and tomorrow I am back in class. In a few weeks, this four-month vacation is going to feel like a distant memory, a really really amazing memory.
This hiatus, or as some would call vacation was extremely self-healing and rejuvenating. My months were filled with weddings, trips to the cabin, work, patio beers, late night river walks and lots of food, lots and lots of food.
Last year school brought me so much joy, I found something I loved and I started to learn how to apply it to my life. I had no idea writing could be so therapeutic and creative at the same time. I didn’t post anything over the summer, but I used writing as a tool to sort of my life and find the positive in things once I had it down on paper.
I didn’t take the traditional route this summer by getting myself a communications job. I did start a few freelance gigs and my new employer opened several doors for me. I have a few jobs that I can work on during school along side of serving and spending the majority of my time and energy on my classes.
Summer gave me perspective, it gave me opportunities and it gave me a second wind. I am ready to kick ass this year and I can’t wait to do it along side my extremely talented and motivated classmates. I learn a lot from my instructors, but it constantly floors me how much I learn from my classmates.
Here goes second-year CreComm, let’s kick some serious booty class of 2018!
