I was just reflecting on the semester. Although it isn’t quite over yet, I took a moment to think about where I was when the semester began and how I am feeling about things now. I feel as though I have definitely gone through a transformation. Not the painful werewolf kind, but the caterpillar-butterfly type. I feel as though by the time the semester is over my little wing buds will have grown just enough to encourage me to continue my academic pursuits. Since I’m at the beginning of my D.A. program, I hope that by the time I am ready for comps my wings will be big enough to help me keep up with all of the bees and birds already in academic flight. Yes, I know this is a corny metaphor but stick with me.
I encourage all of you to pause for a moment to take stock. What have you learned this semester? What kind of transformations have you experienced? What have you learned about yourself that you can bring with you into the next semester?
Of course, if you would like to share we would love to hear from you.
In the meantime, Good Luck with finals and seminar projects. It’s almost over….
