Hey friends! Becca here! I wanted to update y’all on my life! This is about to get vulnerable so prepare yourself and please read it all! This semester in school I’ve been struggling a lot with online classes, covid stuff, anxiety, and focus issues. I’ve recently been diagnosed with anxiety and ADHD and have started on medication for both. Although it’s started helping a lot, it came a little too late to salvage my grades this semester.
I have been doing a lot of reflecting, most done during this one tiring day, about what I really want to do in my life. I’m currently a manufacturing and mechanical engineering technology major, but I’ve recently decided that that’s not really what I want to do with my life. After all the reflection and research and chats with my mom, I decided I want to be a high school math teacher. I know this is a crazy and huge shift in topic, but I feel like it’s what’s right for me. I’m about to start the process of changing my major, which I hope goes smoothly. This semester has been rough and my struggle isn’t over yet, but I’m glad I made this decision when I did. My parents have always told me that it’s never too late to change your mind and that is so true!!! And while it’s super scary to decide what I want to do with the rest of my life when I’m only 20 years old, being a high school math teacher checks all my boxes of what I want to do with my life.
As someone who is so terrified of change, I’m here to tell you all that it’s ok!! Change is sometimes needed to get where you want to be. It’s okay to be scared of change but it’s also necessary to recognize when it’s needed and beneficial for your life.
