Graduation weekend. It's hard to believe that it all happened just one short week ago; the end of my collegiate era, and the beginning of everything else. Here is some perspective, both literally and figuratively:
"If you're going to be passionate about something,
be passionate about learning.
If you're going to fight something, fight for those in need.
f you're going to qiuestion something, question authority.
If you're going to lose something, lose your inhibitions.
If you're going to gain something, gain respect and confidence.
And if you're going to hate something,
hate the false idea that you are not capable of your dreams." -Daniel Golston
College was a period of ample independence with very little responsibility.
Being a college student was easy and challenging and fun all at the same time.
Now, as a real adult, a college graduate sprung into the real world, it feels as though every decision I make is a big one, one that will affect the rest of my life.
Although, in retrospect, maybe it's always been that way... couldn't have all been luck.
I'm probably being dramatic about this (I know I am) but I think I'm allowed to be... this entire transition is so overwhelmingly bittersweet. I am currently living at home. Beginning June 1st I'll be working in the city at my 3-month internship. From there? Only time will tell. And after four glorious years, I'm ready.
