Something You’re Proud Of

I actually struggled to write this post for a while, but after thinking a while I have a few things I’m proud of.

First, I’m proud of the fact I’m taking the time to be more involved on campus this year. Even just showing up to the political science mixer and an extra philosophy debate is more than what I ever did last year. I’m proud that I’m pushing my comfort zone a little bit more, and the people I’m meeting have also been fantastic.

Second, I’m proud that I’m working hard this semester to stay on top of things. I already have plans for three out of four of my essays that aren’t due until the end of November, which is way different than last year. Maybe I’m just more interested in what I’m studying, but I’m proud of the hours I’ve put into my school.

And lastly, I’m proud of myself for making it this far. Some days last year and this year have been rough, but I’m still going strong. That’s an important thing, that you pick yourself back up after a failure, and turn it into a lesson that will motivate you to keep going.

What are you guys proud of this semester, or year? Leave a comment below!



I'm a recent graduate currently living in Calgary, Alberta. You can usually find me with a cup of coffee in one hand while reading a pile of books or planning my next big project. I'm curious about many things - including history, photography, and travelling. You can find me writing away at
