Virtual Tea Time  Endings and Beginnings
It’s April 6th, and I think it’s safe to say that spring has finally arrived! I’m persuaded by the budding tulips seen on campus, the need for an umbrella in Kingston’s torrential downpour on Friday (April showers bring May flowers!), and cravings for smoothies. This girl isn’t mourning the loss of winter at all!
I’m un-officially dubbing April the month of change. So many things are happening this month, for example, I just finished by last week of school. The last presentation, the last lecture, the last simulation lab. Forever.
Everything I have felt this week about endings has been bittersweet. These past four years have just flown by, and there have been so many ups and down both personal and academic. If you were to look back on the person I was four years ago, I don’t think you would recognize her.
School isn’t the only thing that is ending. Next week brings the end of my part time job which I’ve held for three years, the end of my yoga teacher training course, and saying goodbye to friends who are graduating. I really struggle with endings, so it’s bound to be a bit rough.
My plan of action is to focus on the new and exciting. The next few months are going to be a weird time for me, probably initialing even more change. I’m scheduled to write my Nursing exam in June, giving me RN and ‘real person’ status. In the meantime I’ll be studying, working in a cafe here in Kingston, and hopefully having lots of fun. I also have my half-marathon training to keep me occupied, and all the other excitement that summer weather brings
So that’s where I am right now. To wrap things up, here are five awesome links from last week worth a read:
