I really hope after reading that title that you have some serious HSM tunes stuck in your head!!! You’re welcome.
Pretty much since as long as I can remember, I’ve had a brief wave of excitement before the new school year started, and before you start screaming, “NERDDDDDDDD”, let me finish. I don’t think that this anticipation comes from the love of school itself (although, yes, that may have a litttttle something to do with it). I attribute this specific wave of excitement to something I have titled ‘new beginnings’.
I love cracking open a brand new planner and filling it with important dates, fun activities, and yes, even tests. I love reading through a syllabus and looking forward to completing yet another class that puts me one step closer to my goal of becoming a physician assistant (or doctor — that’s still up in the air, whoops). And so today, as I get everything prepared for my very first nursing assistant class, I’m filled with that same excitement that fills me at the beginning of every semester. It’s time for a new beginning, and this one in particular will really catapult me forward in gaining essential experience for my future.
Working in a nursing home as a receptionist, gift store clerk, and activities aid has definitely given me plenty of experience as far as understanding the ins and outs of a long-term care facility, but I’m looking forward to expanding my knowledge into the more medical, direct-contact side of things. Soon enough, I’ll have the knowledge and credentials to be a nurse aide! How exciting!!
So even if you’re not taking a new class, or moving to a new city, or starting a new job, there are plenty of small things that can be seen as ‘new beginnings’, and I encourage you to have excitement about these as they only help you in your growth as a person and will bring new people and new experiences to your life!
If you have a special ‘new beginning’ in your life, I’d love to hear about it in the comments down below!
