Yeah, you read that right. I just graduated from college. And as with every major event that comes, I’ve got feelings about it.
First of all, let me repeat: I just graduated from college. Not kindergarten. Not high school. College.
Four (actually five) years of caffeine-induced all-nighters, crazy study tricks like eating minty gum and writing notes in blue ink.
There’s a new place that I’ve entered, a new sort of realm, called reality.
I find it rather terrifying. School has been a sort of safe place for me. It has been a luxury for the past sixteen or so years.
Times are changing.
Which leads to more questions. What am I going to do? Where am I going? How am I going to do this whole adult thing?
I mean, I’m not saying that I can’t do these things. It just feels so impossible at the moment.
It is a huge accomplishment to graduate college. I would never knock down that accomplishment or try to water it down like it was nothing. It wasn’t nothing. It was so much work and dedication and I needed to get through it to get to where I am today.
I am now officially a college graduate.
I AM NOW OFFICIALLY A COLLEGE GRADUATE.
It’s crazy. I am still struggling with the idea that I, Jessica DeMello, have somehow become a college graduate.
But I did it!
I’m not sure how to end this so I won’t. I’ll leave this open-ended.
If you have any comments, feel free to leave them!
