sometimes I regret choosing to come to Bryn Mawr.
then I quickly retract the thought when I think of all the amazing women I’ve met and encountered, especially my best friends. Bryn Mawr is truly a unique atmosphere, fulled with dedicated, passionate and smart women. and that’s the environment that I saw myself flourishing in 4years ago.
but sometimes, just sometimes, I wonder why I didn’t go somewhere else? I understand I love to be challenged, but I have truly screwed myself over this time. see I was never good at doing things that were easy. however, now as I’m approaching the end - I’ve realized that I have, figuratively speaking, ran too far in the opposite direction. I’m not failing or anything - but I’m not excelling either. in the 4yrs in college I’ve never had a dull moment, I was constantly on “high stress” mode and I don’t know if it was worth it. I’m mentally drained and I don’t think I have the mental energy to accomplish a single dream or aspiration I had talked about for decades.
How did I allow four years of my life to completely change me? and am I ok with it, or am I still shocked, just too confused and too stubborn to admit it …
