Hey guys! Welcome back. In less than three weeks I will be graduating from college. And today I wanted to share some feelings that I have about that. I will be updating you after I graduate and start settling in to the post-grad life, but I wanted to share how I am feeling in the weeks leading up to graduation. Part of me is doing this in case there is anyone out there who is also graduating or will be graduating soon. But another part of me just wants to document it so I can look back on it later in life. Regardless, I thought it would be fun to share with you how I am feeling right now as I get ready to close out this chapter of my life and start the next one.
There is a lot of anticipation around graduation. I am really looking forward to it because I know how hard I have worked and how much I have looked forward to this day for such a long time. The anticipation just gets stronger and stronger as the days go by. It’s a great feeling, but it is also a little scary at the same time. There are a lot of mixed feelings around graduating and knowing that it is the end, and even though I have been expecting this for a long time and knew it was coming, something about knowing it is finally happening is a really big deal for me.
I can’t say that graduating doesn’t make me a little sad. Actually, it makes me really sad. I am going to miss some things about college. There are so many people I am leaving behind that I am really going to miss. There are also things about college life in general that I have grown to love and appreciate. I love my job and I am sad about leaving, but also kind of looking forward to it. I am going to miss going to class and getting to learn knew things. I am going to miss seeing the same people everyday. Graduation is going to be a great day, but I just know I am going to be super sad.
Even with the anticipation and the sadness, I am really excited. This is something I have been working towards and looking forward to for pretty much the biggest majority of my life. So I am excited that it is finally here. I get to experience one of the biggest days of my life and something I have wanted for a really long time. This is probably the biggest feeling that I have about graduating. I am so excited I can hardly wait. Even though it will be difficult and I will be sad, I am also excited for it to end.
I am also really proud of myself. Four and a half years ago I started this journey. It was not without it’s peaks and valleys, but I finally made it. I did something that so many people believed I wouldn’t be able to do. I am accomplishing something that I have always really wanted but didn’t know if it was possible. And now it is happening and I couldn’t be more happy. I get to show all of my hard work and all the time I put into to getting this far.
All of this is to say that graduating from college is such a bittersweet thing. I am looking forward to it with anticipation and excitement, however, I am also really sad and a little scared. I don’t know what the next chapter of my life holds, but I do know now that whatever it is, I can handle it. I have proven myself capable of great things and I have proven that I have the ability to withstand great pressures to get what I want. So I look forward to whatever God has in store for me next.
