Guys. I got straight A's! I kind of felt like that is something I shouldn't post about, because bragging never really suits anyone. But then I decided that since I really did work hard this semester and I really feel like what I produced deserves A's, it's okay to share my bliss.
I sacrificed a lot this semester. I guess that's something I felt like I had to come back from my mission with—the discipline to change some bad habits from pre-mission (procrastination, BS, an attitude of whatever-I-can-pump-out-in-one-night-goes) to good habits (Saturdays studying on campus, making sure I believe in the things I write about, multiple revisions of my papers including peer editing, doing reading and papers in manageable chunks). I learned so many important lessons that they should probably comprise their own post. But I'll just wrap up now.
This semester was hard, but now that I can see the end result, it was worth it. I guess THAT'S the takeaway message of this post.
It's worth it.
Love, Future Kami.
