I’ve never thought much about community service before. I mean, it’s just something you do, not necessarily think about. Maybe you have reasons in the beginning, personally, I just find the reasons as I go along. It’s quite a bit different sitting yourself down and thinking about what you want to accomplish before charging forth. So, generally, I’ll go through with whatever it is I’ve planned for myself to do and at the end I’ll look back and access my actions. For the Community Service Project, however, I had to sit down and think to myself, “what do I want to achieve from this experience?” That’s probably a good approach to life.
I feel as if the entire school itself is my support system. The library, the honor’s lounge, and even the cafeteria in the morning have given me somewhat of a home away from home. They provide for me a place to work or hide, undisturbed by unwanted forces. There are still a lot of resources at Baruch that I have yet to utilize. I will probably get to them eventually, but, so far, I have realized that I have to utilize my own resources better. Specifically, my time.
Time flies by so fast, I mean, look, the semester is pretty much over on Thursday. I’m not sure if I can determine whether it went well or badly until the grades get, life is all about stressing over grades.
I haven’t joined any clubs, but that’s the next goal. If things go according to plan, I’ll be spending the winter break attending VITA training taxes. Oh, the thrill of taxes is just filling me with (sarcastic) joy.
Funny thing is, 3 years seems like an awful long time, but it will probably pass in the blink of an eye. The thought is terrifying. Honestly, I have no idea where I will be in 3 years. I surprise myself. Sometimes I accomplish things that I did not even know I was capable of. Life is surprising. It has it’s twists and turns. I don’t think anyone really knows where they will end up in the end.
