Last semester, I struggled mightily with my school work, which made me homesick all the time. I just wanted to spend time with my family everyday… This semester, however, could possibly be my best academic semester in college, which is very encouraging. 1 downside of this is that I feel the need to do work all the time that I think about my family a lot less than usual. This thinking has been bothering me lately, because I worry that when I get a job years from now, I will put my work before my family. I can promise that that will not happen, but that’s been my thought. I just need to constantly remind myself of all the loves my parents pour out to me, which is helping me to do my best in any aspect of my life.
