It is natural for people to feel.
After 3 months of countless hours of work, studying, and actually learning…I feel something.
I feel like this days will never exist again and instead of feeling relieved and anxious for the next semester…I feel, lost.
New people, new professor, new relationships to be made, and work to be done. Is this really what I want or did I just start to get complacent?
Looking back, I did learn something every day. I learned the material and I also learned about myself.
I believe that this is what college is really about and it is not about tests, papers, and stress. It is the idea that you as a human will grow into your own mentally, physically, and spiritually along a timed journey.
For the first time after being a student of formal education of 16 years and a student of life for 24, I feel it.
To say I have done any of this alone would be a poor, inexcusable understatement and discredit to the people I have been fortunate enough to cross paths with.
This is my thank you to you…all of you. You will never know what you have done. It is my job now to show you by being what you always wanted me to be…myself.
