Made it through

….another weekend. But this wasn’t just any other weekend. This was my BFA Exhibit weekend. This was the Logan Film Festival Weekend. This was the “fringe” design weekend. This was the redesign of 100N Weekend. This was my parents coming in for the weekend.This was the last weekend of doing projects! By this time next week I will be done with college! I will be done with school projects and sitting in classes. I can’t believe it. I really can’t believe I am going to be graduating in 2 weeks. Thats a short amount of time when you think about it. A lot can happen in two weeks. 2 weeks of waiting. 4 days of getting through my last classes. 4 final projects due. I’m so excited!!!!!!

I’m stronger than I was 4 years ago. I’m wiser, I’m more open and outgoing, more creative, more natured, more traveled. 4 years ago I was graduating high school. Now I will be graduating college. A lot has happened in 4 years. A lot will happen in the next. I know I may not have a set path on what I am doing with my life in the next  couple of months, I know its up for grabs on the outcome of a job will be, I know I have no idea where I will be come August, but I do know its hard for my mother to let me go, I know my dad will guide me and support me through my decisions, I know my sister has got my back on whatever I do, I know my man will be there for me and keep on motivating me. I do know that I’m excited for whats to come and I can’t wait for what God has in store for me.

God has a path for me, he has plans for me, I know it may not be as fast as I would like it to be or as clear as I would, but I know its there and no matter what I have faith in him that what ever does happen will be for the benefit of me. What ever path he leads me on will be the one for me. I’m stronger than I was 4 years ago, I’m stronger than I was at the beginning of my senior year, I’m wiser, I’m focused. I’m stronger today than I was yesterday.

Bring it on world. Bring it on

Word of the Year 2012

My word of the year for 2012 is FOCUS —-mentally, physically, and spiritually.

I want to focus more on my studies, more on my future and more on making connections.

I want to be able to focus more on my friendships, the ones that matter, and the ones that have just begun. Focus more on relationships–family, friends, and extended relationships.

I want to focus more on praying everyday and thanking God for what he has given me. As well as keep God in my daily life whichever thing that I do throughout.

FOCUS is my word of the year. Focus on the bigger picture, focus on my future, focus on my graduation, focus on getting a job, focus on being better than I was the last year, focus on my relationships, focus on learning more about my career, focus on saving, focus on becoming better, focus on God, focus on family, focus on my attitude, focus on my heart, focus on the things that are important to me.
