As the semester comes to a close, I wanted to take some time to discuss some of the things I’ve had going on. It has been a difficult year as I’ve had some health issues that have permitted me from putting my all into my schoolwork. I’ve spent the past few months going from different types of specialists, having all sorts of different labs and imaging done, as well as just not feeling well in my day-to-day. Because of this, I was not able to fully focus on school and I actually ended up changing my major this semester. Though it was not an easy decision and it has set my graduation a year back, I feel that I made the right decision.

It is totally okay to change your mind and choose a new path as long as it is something you want and feel is better for you. I felt very down on myself and frustrated when I first came to my crossroads but I met with my advisors and come up with a new plan and now I am ready to see where my new path takes me!
