Intentionality

Tomorrow is Tuesday, and also the start of the 3rd week of Sophomore year. The past two weeks have been a wild ride, let me tell you. My new classes, new job, and new internship have all presented unique challenges. Nonetheless, I feel like I have managed really well and I am so excited for the rest of the upcoming year.

Throughout the past few weeks, I have made an effort to be intentional. “Intentional” is often flung around in meaningful conversation or blog posts and is a word that I ponder often. What does it mean to be intentional? And why is it so important?

Although I am not sure exactly what everyone else means when they use the word “intentional,” I have come up with my own definition.

Being intentional – living in the moment. considering others thoughts / needs when making decisions for yourself. offering unsolicited support to others. paying attention to what is important in the moment. not getting distracted by future worries. spending time in the most productive and thoughtful manner. operating based on general thoughtfulness. 

I hope to be intentional with my thoughts and actions in the upcoming months. This semester has been great and I am so thrilled to see what great things are to come.

Here are some pictures from the last few weeks.

Me after the first day of school. The first day was, as always, a little overwhelming! I watched the movie “Sing” that night, btw.
A celebratory “WE SURVIVED THE FIRST WEEK” dinner! This week, I want to have a “WE SURVIVED THE THIRD WEEK” dinner. I’m down to celebrate every week for the rest of the year, honestly.
