As I sit down to write my very first blog post, on my new website, I am amazed at how much has changed and how much is going to change.
As you may know, I am in my fourth and final year of university. I have been applying for summer internships like crazy and sadly I haven’t gotten one yet. In my head it was going to be an easy process, as I normally achieve everything I go far. I passed my learners the first time, my drivers test the first time, and so far I have passed all of my classes with decent grades.
At this stage in my life, it is time for me to learn how to ‘fail’. In my mind not getting the the summer jobs I apply for feels like a failure, but it is not actually a failure. This just means others are better qualified. I must learn to keep working at it until I find something that works for me.
I thought I would post about this because I know numerous friends and fellow students who are going through the same emotions as I am. I just want them to know that they are not alone.
Not all of my posts will be like this. Others may be about my adventures in Southern Alberta, like hiking in Banff! Stay tuned.
