I’m flying out to Delhi tomorrow immediately after class. All I can think about right now is the fact that I’ll get some time off-campus, which I think will do me some good. I’m also very excited and very eager for the new experience I’ve got lined up on Sunday, and all the things I will get to learn through that.
My confidence is taking a hit though. I’m just very grateful that there are some people from school who are willing to help me mend that. All of them recognize I made a mistake – but they’re people who want me to be better. And they’ve helped tons. One day I hope to pay it forward.
In this preparation for Delhi I’ve spent a lot of time reading things I love. Its reminded me of debating preparation back in second and third year, when I used to spend a lot of time reading from a debating perspective. I’m fortunate to have that background, but it’s also reminding me and reaffirming my love for learning and reading. I know its the one of the only ways I love pushing myself to grow – and I will always commit to that. I miss reading when I don’t do it as intensely. Maybe it’s important to do it consistently well again. Not just the fiction and the non-fiction, that is.
