At the time this post will self publish I will not yet have graduated. My graduation ceremony isn’t until 4pm and this thing usually goes live around midnight so I’ll either be asleep or doing other things.
I will however have completed all my final examinations. I will have no idea if I passed or not, and I tend to think negatively about such things to ward off disappointment (not saying it’s healthy, just saying it’s what I do) but I know that I did my very best on all of them.
This was an interesting semester for me. Perhaps it was because it was my last, perhaps it was pure circumstance but I was considerably more interested in my courses this semester than any previous semester.
Well, I was extremely interested in ONE course, interested enough in three, and I tolerated the forth.
It felt very much like my senior semester; everything felt big and important and final—part of why I think it has more to do with it being my last semester than the content actually being significantly different.
I do not know what the future will hold, but I have been in school so long at this point that I am beyond ready to take that next step at a full run. I want to leap into the unknown and get on with my life. I know it won’t be easy, that it will be both terrifying and incredibly difficult, but I am ready for this challenge.
I know many have already completed their semester or are nearing the end, and I’m afraid I have no words of wisdom to help you save to say that I believe in you, regardless of whether you have exams to do or summer plans to make real, I believe in you.
So let’s blow this popsicle stand.
