Now What? : Farewell

Posted on by Jaela Hall Posted in Now What? | Comments Off

12. It’s Just About That TimeGoodbye

I never am the one to enjoy goodbyes. But, as it’s been said time and time again, “All good things must come to an end”. So, I–with no shortage of tears in my eyes–announce that this will be the final post of the Now What? series. Oh, comrades. Please hold back the uncontrollable sobbing and snot laden tissues, at the very least until I have some delivered my final words of wisdom.

I have had a blast writing for all you forgotten sophomores. I hope that, by reading my weekly posts, you have learned something valuable to take into this coming academic year. Whether it be how to manage stress or maintain savings, my greatest wish is that I have provided you with some information that will somehow come to service you in growing as a person and having an overall successful second year.

You-can-do-it-BABYFreshmen are “special”, I guess. But that’s just because they are–for the time being–the babies of the collegiate family. And everyone knows that the youngest siblings always get special treatment. Yes, the  spotlight no longer shines affectionately on your smiling faces. However, from loss, new opportunity can be found. Meaning, though the Golden Year has ended, you now have the chance to apply last year’s lessons to the adventure that awaits as well as welcome new lessons into that big, beautiful brain of yours.

Do not dwell on what times have passed. Focus more on what amazing experiences, people, and brand new lessons are sure to come your way this year! You all have the power to make each year you spend here in college a wondrous and treasured time. Do your part to make the best of everything put in your hands, and you’ll be golden.

Hope you learned a little something about being a sophomore, see you when I see you! :)

Goodbye golden year!

Now What: Inspiration

11. I’m Going to Put Your Heart in an Oven 


Yeaaaaaaaa…that title probably got your attention, didn’t it? Let me just put the impending admonishment to a halt now  before you go full super saiyan on me. If you haven’t caught on to my sarcastic tone by this time, I don’t know where you’ve been! I don’t actually  plan on committing such an egregious act as that of cooking your corazon in an 1,000-watt piece of machinery. For this week’s post, I am going to step just a bit outside the box. Basically, the plan is to dump heaps and hoards of inspirational material on you until you feel suffocated by all of encouragement. If it sounds a bit unnervingly glorious, that’s because it is! Time to finally oil up those rusty hinges on the doors of your hearts. I’m about to stuff a lot of warmin’ up in there; maybe some cerebral strain, if I’m feelin’ sassy.
