What I Learned About Myself During My Junior Year
Soon my junior year will be gone, over, done. The 11 will become a 12. The "ju" will become a "se." I will be in the oldest group of high schoolers.
My junior year taught me so much about myself. I learned my personality type, how to say no, how to manage time and commitments, and that I can take on college-level courses.
Here are some of the other facts I learned about myself, whether fun or deep or both:
// Personalities, the future, books, and God are four somewhat abstract concepts, but they are my four favorite things to talk about.
// I can let my true self shine through in as few words as possible. (See Ecclesiastes 6:11, one of my new favorite verses for its sassiness.)
// I don't want to read a book that smart people would think is stupid.
// It can be so hard to find a friend that is "an equal in age, intellect, and social standing with whom to share both entertainment and confidences." (Emma, Jane Austen).
// I am a combination of Belle, Padme Amidala, Anne Shirley, Mary Poppins, and Susan Pevensie, according to various sources.
// I have a strange obsession with eating things in their raw state: batter, dough, frozen things before they're thawed, etc. I guess I'm just not very patient.
// I never really think about "hurt feelings." That just isn't in my vocabulary, even as an ENFJ. Hmm...weird.
// I am choosing to simply be myself, regardless of what others think.
My junior year has been neither good nor bad. It's been a beautiful mix, and I've learned a lot and become more myself as a person. I've been freed from bad habits and found a deeper side of my personality. I've made new friends and worked tirelessly on whatever I put my hand to.
So long, junior year, and hello, senior year!!!!!
