They sound easier than done, but everyone knows that in order to build a strong bridge, you have to put effort into the building process.My plans for next year still have not been decided yet. That is probably the main source of my anxiety. I guess I should talk to the council or my parents on how to make this crucial decision because it is difficult to make the "correct" choices on my own.Meeting new people and making new friends can be scary. Like I said before, it is the start of a new semester, and it will definitely be hard to make new friends; other people might alienate me.

I plan to improve my social and communication skills, thus to improve my abilities orally and also being able to make new friends.After being able to come up with helpful ideas and solutions for my problems, I am feeling cheerful again. It is a very interesting second semester to start the second half of the year. Life is full of surprises. We all need to make decisions in life. And hopefully, the decisions I will be making in my second semester will be positive ones that will benefit my self-confident and my future education career!
