I stand on a stage, receive a few rounds of applause and realize that it’s all over. Three and a half years of collegiate slave labor, come to an end.
People keep asking me what it’s like to be graduating so soon. Well, I’ll let you in on a secret. It’s terrifying. You think you know what you want to do throughout your college career. You plan out your future and dream about all the sweet jobs you’ll have in that field.
Come senior year, especially just a week or two away from graduating, you realize that the real world is way more expansive then your little career plan. So many possibilities. Do you REALLY know what you want to do? Maybe this, or maybe that? Or maybe just anything, to pay of the school debt.
So yes, it’s exciting. Yes, I feel like I finally accomplished something legit. And yes — it’s terrifying.
