Oh my goodness, I didn’t post anything in April! I’m horrified! And after I promised ya’ll at least two posts a month, too. I’m sorry. I value each and every one you readers immensely, but I’ve got to hold up my end of the deal here. Besides, I love blogging. I just need to remind myself of that every now and then. I’m actually going to skip the Entertainment of the Month section for this post (sorry!), but here’s my Happenings of April.
My Life This Month:
Well, ya’ll already know that I haven’t blogged anything in a month. Even this post is later than it was supposed to be. It’s indicative of how crazy April was for me.
Finals week was not as bad for me as it was for some, but the end of the semester is always a little nuts. The hardest part of it for me wasn’t my assignments but rather the stress of choosing classes for next fall. It’s frustrating that they expect you to choose classes right as you’re brain-dead from your semester, but I didn’t want to risk my classes being full by the time I got around to it. So, such is life. I survived the process, thankfully. I’ll have a full load next semester, but I’m excited to be taking a history class. I love history, but I haven’t had to the chance to take it until now. So, I’m looking forward to that.
I closed out this semester with good grades, which is a blessing. I was happy to be done with most of my classes, but saying goodbye to ASL was harder than I expected it to be. I’ve had this teacher and most of these classmates for about eight months now, and suddenly it was over. I did really well on my final presentation, thankfully, but leaving class was unexpectedly difficult for me. This wasn’t one of those classes where you go all semester without meeting each other; this was a really interactive class. I was sad to leave. I still am, honestly. I’m feeling kind of melancholy. Time will cure it, but enough time hasn’t passed yet. Goodbyes are hard.
I am taking more ASL next fall, but most of my classmates aren’t taking up that class. So, it will be different, for sure. As for this summer, I’ll keep going to deaf socials and try to get some actual order into my life. Cleaning my room is first on the list (it is a disaster), followed by my writing. For now, I’m living with the end-of-the-semester blues and waiting for my summer job to start. Such is life.
