“Be silent and safe — silence never betrays you; Be true to your word and your work and your friend; Put least trust in him who is foremost to praise you, Nor judge of a road till it draw to the end.” ― John Boyle O'Reilly
I've been busy with school and work and planning for next year. But I think I should make a post to update anyone reading this on what life is actually like here at Norwich, for me at least.
Firstly, it's mighty cold but I'm used to it. I was born in New England so I'm used to New England weather. It's temperamental at best, you never know what you're going to get. There's lots of snow also and every time there's a storm, I have to remember to clean my car off or else I'm in for a surprise (mostly because I tend to be forgetful about a lot of things) when I do have to drive it because it's sometimes buried.
I probably mentioned in a previous post that I had switched majors from nursing to psychology. It was not a last minute decision, believe it or not. I had been mulling over it since I was a sophomore at Norwich during the Fall semester. Of course, the change seemed to come suddenly, but if anyone knows me well and frankly few people do, they would know I never do anything in haste.
I also never abandon something I've started. Which means, at some point in time, I will be finishing out my nursing degree. After I graduate Norwich I already have plans to attend USM and enroll in their accelerated BSN program. After that, I'm still making plans but they are tentative at best.
So, that's where I'm at right now. I'm very much looking forward to the end of this semester and the start of my senior year at Norwich. Sometimes, I am surprised to realize how far I've come. To everyone closing in on their senior years, I'm sure you're going to do amazing and go out into the world and do great things!
This is an ability that can give us the opportunity to hear the stories and experiences of those around us. In today's world, there is so much talking and so many judgmental attitudes. Sometimes, we just need to stop an listen.
