I truly can't believe this is the final assignment I will be submitting for my Capstone. 2 years has gone by so, so fast. Faster than I ever could have imagined.
Writing this paper was a challenge. I love to write, but there were so many things that were new to me in this experience. I had never even done footnotes! Change is hard for me, so stretching myself outside my comfort zone took a lot. A lot of energy, time, and commitment.
Truly, this entire program has been energy, time, and commitment. So many weekends, and hours after work. But, gosh has it been worth it.
The program overall, and writing this paper, has really taught me a lot about myself- my ability to push myself, and still get the thing done, even when it's difficult. Getting up early on the weekends and spending hours researching and writing. It was tough. But, it all feels so worth it. The relief, and pride, I have in myself now that the paper is done, is overwhelming.
I am so thankful for all of the assignments tied to the paper- the listicle, the panel presentation, and the series of blog posts- all of them made me think about my topic from a different angle, and really made me feel like an expert. I'm extremely proud of my writing- it's not perfect, but I know I tried my best. I put the work in, and I'm proud of that.
