I Just Graduated!

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.

All gone.

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.


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.
