Grab Your Journal: New Year’s Prompts

It can be overwhelming to realize how much happened  in one year, + even more overwhelming to think that another year of events is ahead. Life is so fast paced [especially in college] + often we move from one day to the next without any thought.

Sometimes, to help sort through your thoughts + organize them for the next school year, it can help to sit down, take some deep breaths, ++ journal. So, grab your favorite journal, get comfy, + see what your mind wants to tell you with these journal prompts!
