It has been about a week since I posted! It's exam week and I'm trying my best to catch up and to find myself in the chaos. There has been a flurry of events that have happened. This past weekend, I got the opportunity to attend a leadership and diversity conference. The experience did so much more for me that I could have ever imagined. It forced me to confront issues that I wasn't heeding as a woman, student, black woman, etc. The conference gave me so many visions and ideas for my future. (You might be able to tell my excitement, idk)
In the same vein, my philosophy has always been: Take advantage of each opportunity given to. Currently, I've been like like that window of what I viewed as "opportunities"has been opened up it's supply of options. I am also learning the importance and ability to say "no" to certain opportunities. I've learned that it's ok to say no and to think about what is best for me not what someone else thinks or what "may look good." While I always consider myself as an adventurer and explorer, I have changed my outlook a bit. I've learned that I can "explore" by throwing myself into a new book, and that "adventuring" does not necessarily mean buying tickets to Paris and even hiking down to Florida. Sometimes, the adventure is right in front of you, but it all depends on what you do with it. For me, I plan to do a lot of things over the next year, just tune in.
In the meanwhile: I will continue my time being in good company
