Hello all & good day!
This week marks yet another new chapter of my life as its orientation week in Uni! Class selections are to be done tomorrow while my actual classes start next Monday aaand I can’t wait 😀 (I am a tad bit fidgety & hoping that I’ll be able to get good class timings as well as lecturers) There’s much to look forward to and I know I’ve got a goOod 3 years ahead of me.
To be honest, I’m not really an outgoing person by nature 😮 Though I’ve gotten an earful of advice on how I should get myself active in university and I know it so myself, it’s definitely going to be a challenge for me.
I’d say I’m more of an introvert… but I can be friendly! (A friendly introvert? 😮 ) I’m not one to completely shy away, and I reach out to people (especially when in the position of responsiblity) but at the same time, I get intimidated when there’s a whole bunch of extroverts dominating the scene… I really do :S
Nonetheless, I’ve set out to get actively involved in the programmes and events my university offers so that I can serve the students as well as gain experience and develop my character 🙂 A thought that came to me awhile ago: “If you don’t feel comfortable doing it, but you kinda know you should, then you should!”
This is because I realized that the things that we are hesitant to do – that are out of our comfort zones – are the very things that make us stretch and grow as individuals! It’s how we learn new things – about the world, about people, about ourselves! 🙂 So get out there, yes – take that step! Don’t talk yourself out of it once you’ve set your mind on it. Don’t be scared to give yourself a little push sometimes because in the end you’ll most likely look back and think “hey, I needed that” 🙂
Much love and thanks for reading! ❤
