Hello everyone, for the last time! If any of my peers read this I hope you guys do great on your finals and good luck in life! Over this past semester I was forced to try out new things through this blog. Although it may have been for an assignment I truly enjoyed what I did.
Through this blog I was able to do many of the things I said I always would, but never really got around to it! For example, going to a haunted house! Going to a haunted house was on my bucket list for a long time and I just never got around to it. Through this blog I was able to and share my experience with my fellow peers.
I loved the sense of community we had through our blogs. Commenting on each others blog post was my favorite part. Through the comments section we were always able to lift each other up and give advice. In one of my blog posts I talked about my acne and how insecure I felt about it. Those who commented on that blog made feel so overwhelmed and happy! I will always remember their comments and how wonderful they are!
Although I enjoyed writing about my experiences, I loved reading the other blogs as well! All the stories, experiences, and advice everyone had to share was incredible! I was able to learn not only through my experiences but others as well! Which was amazing because I gained some very useful advice. Some blogs were hilarious and some taught me things I didn’t know about. Which was one the best parts about reading these blogs.
Overall, the blog posts I made taught me so much about myself. My journey from the very beginning was to be able to learn more about myself as I hadn’t really explored. I learned that I didn’t have to follow a religion, be insecure, or have anyone else validate my feelings. Writing my feelings out about those topics helped me gain confidence in myself. I felt more powerful and comfortable with myself. This semester has been a hard one. However, this blog made it a little bit easier to get through.
This blog didn’t feel like another assignment I had to do. It felt as if I was just writing in my personal diary to people that I could share these personal thoughts with. I still have so much to learn and share! It is so sad that this came to an end so fast. However, I will continue to learn and do my best to try something new every week, just like I did for this blog! If I continue to do that I’ll be able to finish my bucket list in no time!
This class was very unique and I loved every part of it. I hope I am able to keep in contact with everyone! Good luck with everything you may do! I also hope some of you continue your blogs because they were actually very good!
