Change–some people like it, some people don’t. I haven’t quite decided.
It’s weird to think that I only have one more year left at Bethel after this. And I technically only have one more full semester on campus because I leave on practicum in the spring of 2013. It seems like just the other day that I first arrived on campus and first met who I’m sure will be some of my lifelong friends. But the past three years have been full of change. And everything continues to change before my very eyes. There’s a change in me, as well. Although, I don’t think that I can see it quite as clearly as I can see the renovation of the dinning commons here on campus. But there is a change–a maturity. I have grown.
The interpreting program in and of itself doesn’t allow a student to enter it and not be changed. It’s tough, but it teaches you so much about yourself. Because of this program, I have learned how to step back from what I have presented in order to analyze it and do even better the next time. Because of this program, I’ve learned to take constructive critisism as an aid. Because of this program, I have learned that life is not easy, but also that easy is not life.
Change–it’s all around me, and it always will be. But remember, the spring always follows the winter.
