I wanted to wait this till after all the hustle and bustle of Christmas and New Years was over. I hope everyone else had a fantastic Christmas and New Years, I know I did. Just as last year, I had an extremely busy Christmas day, with celebrations happening all day. My family hosted Christmas morning with my mother’s family, went to my boyfriends house for Christmas lunch with his family and later that evening enjoyed Christmas dinner with my dad’s side of the family. I love the holidays because we spend so much time with our families and reminisce on the past years! For New Years I went up to Harrisonburg with my boyfriend and his family to visit his grandparents, aunt, uncle and cousins. This is the second year we have done this together and I love it every time. There is always so much food, laughter, pictures, family, friends, and not so much sleep! It’s all completely worth it.
After everyone started to get back into the swing of things of everyday life I decided that searching for an internship, going over my schedule for the upcoming semester and nannying my favorite children was how I would spend the end of my break! 2016 has started off with a bang! After emailing 7 different venues in my area, I received only a few responses, one being very promising. I have an interview on Monday with a venue close by for a possible internship opportunity over the summer and I couldn’t be more excited! I also received an email this morning informing me that I have made Dean’s List for the first time. I have been working so hard over the course of the last 5 semesters to get to this point. I couldn’t have done it without the motivation, help, and support of my family and boyfriend, I’m so blessed. I am feeling so accomplished and motivated! There really is no better feeling! I have high hopes for 2016 and can’t wait to see what happens next!
