“I feel extremely lucky, extremely grateful, and a little bittersweet, too.”
It’s been awhile since I’ve written. I guess senior year is what they say it is. So busy you can’t even breath let alone write in your blog once in awhile. But I’m back!
You know that bittersweet feeling when you’re about to leave a place and nothing will ever be the same as it is right now. That’s how us seniors who are about to graduate feel like. In just a couple weeks we will be college graduates. Something I still can’t wrap my head around. Something that is described as bittersweet. I’m so excited to graduate with a degree I love and to find a job I’m passionate about. I’m also scared as hell too.
WHAT IF I DON”T FIND A JOB?
I think that’s a question most of us seniors are thinking right about now. Unless you have a job lined up, but let’s be real I don’t have my life together. I don’t have a job lined up. And I honesty don’t know what I’m going to do once I graduate.
WHAT IF I HATE MY JOB?
Maybe you do get a job right after you graduate. And what if you absolutely hate that job. Being an adult is getting scarier and scarier as the days narrow down. I mean I can barely call my doctors office and make an appointment for myself and I am expected to be a real adult in a few weeks?
I can’t imagine waking up next year and not having my two amazing roommates there. I can’t imagine not doing everything I am doing right now. Let’s be honest. As much as all the school work and classes suck sometimes, college is kinda awesome.
WHAT ABOUT GRAD SCHOOL?
I guess this questions pops into most of our heads as we near graduation. Some people don’t want to have to do more schooling and that is completely understanding. Some of us have to go to grad school to continue their education. And some of us just want to. I decided last minute that I wanted to go to grad school and I just found out today that I got accepted and I couldn’t be more excited about it!
My point is that we don’t know where we will end up and it’s okay to not have a clue what we are doing. We will figure it out eventually and for now let’s just enjoy the ride and figure it out as we go.
Enjoy your last couple weeks of your undergraduate. Appreciate the little things and look forward to the big things. Before you know it you will be working your 9-5 job and wishing you were back in college.
