I’m back! I haven’t updated this website since taking PUB 201 in the spring, so I’m excited to see what changes will happen with this platform in the coming months.
This week, we were asked to create a mood/vision board that describes a few feelings and experiences we are aiming for in life. This could take the form of a word bubble but I am choosing to do a collage to serve as a visual representation or blue print of what I am striving for. In PUB 201, we were asked to do a similar post so it was quite interesting to see what aspects and goals have changed throughout the past few months. For reference, here is a link to what my mood/vision board looked like at the start of the year during the Spring 2020 semester —> https://marylouvillegas.com/blog-posts/progressposts/
This is what I would envision my board to look like today:
Themes —> warm tones, music, nature, plants, coffee, my faith, friends and family.
Although there are many goals and aspects of my life that haven’t changed, there are a few that have been added. For instance, ever since the start of quarantine I felt this urge to get reconnected with nature. Whether it be through neighbourhood strolls or rigorous hikes, I have come to appreciate the power exercise and fresh air can bring to one’s life. In relation to nature, I have decided the theme of this season in my life — GROWTH. As difficult as these past few months have been, I believe that it has pushed me to grow in faith, love, and most importantly… in the number of plants I currently own.
Various changes, hardships and tribulations have allowed me to come to peace with the idea that I am not the same as I was when COVID began. Much like many of you, I was having trouble visualizing what the coming months would look like, where I would be, what I would be doing. To add to the anxiety, I am currently in my last semester of university and if all goes well I will be graduating at the end of the year. It’s daunting to think about, but I am more excited than scared to face what the future holds.
