I graduated from college today. I think I'm still in shock that this day has finally arrived. It's scary to think that I have been in school for about 20 years from preschool to graduating college and now I find myself asking, "now what?" I feel so free, and lost, and excited, and nervous, and anxious, and happy all at the same time. My life is lacking structure now. All I've ever known is summer vacation then school in the Fall. The scary thing is I'm not on summer vacation anymore, now I'm just unemployed. Crazy right?
It's weird to think that tomorrow morning I'm going to wake up with no papers to write, no assignments to work on, and no tests to study for. What am I going to do with my life? Why can't I just move to Disneyland and live with Peter Pan and never grow up? That sounds pretty amazing right about now.
I guess the point of this post is that before you know it life happens and one day you find yourself graduating college. All your hard work and long nights with no sleep finally pay off and then here you are, degree in hand not knowing what to do with your life. And no matter how much you plan, life is going to take you places you have never dreamed of going. Some good places, and some bad.
I've always hated change, and now I'm going through one of the biggest changes of my life. Life is going to be very different from here on out, and honestly I'm scared. But I suppose change is necessary, and eventually everyone has to grow up (well not completely). Even though I'm nervous about growing up, I'm excited to start a new chapter of my life!
Congrats Class of 2013!
