I would like to apologize for the absence of not writing; life is always busy. So I’m finally is the last home stretch game of my college career, and I was thrown an out of the loop request that I can’t seem to shake. Getting ready for graduation, while attending class, can be stressful. However, as I was getting my graduation form signed, one of my professors asked me a question that has been asked but in a different way. “Julia, Why aren’t you majoring in Spanish?” My first thought was I can’t speak Spanish very well. I become super nervous and my words don’t sound the same out loud as they perfectly sound in my head. Mind you, I have been studying Spanish since Junior year of high school. I can attest my Spanish has improve in the written part and a little for the speaking.
So, I went to see how many credits I already have in this department. I can’t believe that I only need 5 more classes in order to obtain a bachelor’s in Spanish. I always wanted to have a degree in Spanish and Nursing although the latter is going to be fulfilled at a later time, but I’m reaching this goal naturally. I’m taking Spanish classes to fulfill my concentration, but why not play the game a little longer?
I’m expected to graduate in the Spring with a degree in Exercise Science (the name is longer) and a concentration in Spanish. I don’t want to extend another year because that’s more money that I don’t have. But I’m thankful that God is allowing me to accomplish one of the goals I have internally set.
So do I continue playing, ignore the curveball, or finish the game strong?
I’m still considering the curveball, but I don’t want to speak too soon.
Remember, decisions are hard to make, especially when you are finally on a solid direction moving steadily. But don’t miss a different path that could help you, because you are focused, not saying we shouldn’t be focused.
Explore while you still have the chance.
As always, I hope you have a wonderful day, the sky looks clear enjoy Mother Nature.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, wishing you a stress free week.
