Hello Concord Family,
I hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy at Concord. As for me, I am finally doing better after being sick for weeks. I am also in shock because I only have four weeks left of being a junior and then I become a senior. Is weird to think in just a few weeks I will be entering my last year of undergrad, I knew time would go by fast, but I had no idea how fast it would be.
April was a hard month for me but as always, I pushed through, I was excited to head into April because of the warm weather and just being able to do things outside. But I was hit with bad allergies and getting sick at the same time. For a few weeks, I really had a hard time being a student and trying to keep it all balanced. Even though I was behind at times academically, I still found the courage to push through. Because I am in classes geared towards my major, that is where my motivation came from because I really like attending these classes and just talking about political science. These classes that excites were able to be my motivator to get up everyday and go to class even if I was feeling sick.
Even though April was hard for me, I still had some things I looked forward to. For one, I declared a second minor in Journalism, and I am so excited about it because anyone that knows me, knows I love to talk. I also wrapped up my job at Xfinity as an ambassador which was very bittersweet as I had so much fun working there and learning from them. I also got choose my classes for next fall, which means only one semester of choosing classes left for me. And on top of all that, I am still studying for the LSATs. April was filled with up and downs, but it was still busy.
As we enter May, I am looking forward to being done with finals and being able to just take a break from school. I might also be getting some exciting news (fingers crossed) so stay updated with my May blog. And honestly, I am looking forward to nicer weather still.
Lastly, as a black person in America and a black woman, the verdict of Derek Chauvin was important for me. Hearing the guilty verdict was like breathing a sigh of relief, in that moment it felt like finally, justice. But the works does not stop, there is still work to be done and even though Chauvin was found guilty, it also showed that the work is just starting. The fight continues!
I hope everyone has been safe and healthy at Concord!
Until Next Time,
