I realize it's been months since I last posted. I thought about my blog basically everyday and kept telling myself, "Tomorrow I'll get back into it," but as we all know, tomorrow never comes.
Basically, 2015 was the most difficult, challenging year of my life. I was a second semester junior and first semester senior. On top of that, I knew I wanted to apply for graduate school in Psychology but wasn't sure what degree or subject I wanted to pursue. While trying to figure that out, I had to study for the GRE, keep on top of my school work and attempt to raise my GPA, research schools, decide which schools to apply to, workshop my resume at least 100 times, write a hundred personal statements, and try to have a social life. Needless to say, there was a lot going on in my life. I was very anxious and stressed out about what life after my undergraduate career looked like. It was not at all a bad year (in fact it was one of my most memorable); it was just very, very stressful and tiring.
2016 has been a lot less rough and a lot more wonderful. Alhamdulilah (Praise be to God) I am now a second semester senior (and going to be In Shaa Allah (God Willing) graduating in about two months), and I've also gotten accepted into three graduate schools so far! In other words: life is good. I'm at a good place.
While I am still busy, trying to make the most of my last two months here both academically and socially, I now have time and mental energy to put back into my blog! I'm so excited to get back into writing. I have so many blog post ideas. I am going to work on my next post right now, about what it is really like to live in an Aramco camp. :) So stay tuned!
