Why I'm Ready to Graduate

Oh, college. 

They say "it'll be the best years of your life" & "enjoy it while it lasts," but really?  Was that the best 4 years of my life?  Was that it?  Now the rest of my life will just be mediocre?  If that's all true, then I might as well call it quits now because it really wasn't all of those things. 

College was rough.  It wasn't all that fun.  And I beg to differ that that was the best four years of my life.  But, if there's more exciting things to come (which I believe there are), then that makes me so excited to be done with college.  For that reason, I am ready to graduate.

Don't get me wrong, I think college was a lot better than high school.  I wasn't the biggest fan of high school, but college gave me more freedom.  I got to semi-choose my own schedule, wear what I wanted, & bring my coffee to class.  Although those were some perks, college brought some heartache too.  I didn't want to go to community college & I was told my senior year of high school that I had no other choice due to dumb universities being so expensive.  I lived at home which ended up working out for the better when after my first semester, my dad died unexpectedly.  I remember thinking a million times after that happened that I should just drop out.  College was hard.  I didn't think I could do it after everything that happened.  But my friends, family, and the main One who got me through it all, my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, helped me see that it could be done.  So I pushed through, trying to remember my goal of graduating in four years.

A few bumps in the road later & a couple of new adventures along the way, I'm finally here.  Watching the calendar.  Seeing each week creep closer & closer to graduation.  I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.  It's finally happening.  College is about to be over.  The "best four years of my life" are coming to an end.  And may I just say, I'm relieved.  Not that I haven't had good times along the way... I've had some great times.  I've made new friends.  I got a boyfriend that turned into a fiancé, that turned into a husband (whom I love very much).  I learned a lot...  I learned what I truly want to do with my life (even though some people in society don't see it as worthy).  I also learned that helping people is something I absolutely love.

With everything that college has taught me, yes it has been good, but I'm ready to see what else God has planned for my life.  I'm ready for a new adventure that doesn't involve school.  I'm ready to prove to people that college really isn't the best four years of my life.  I'm ready to enjoy life outside of college.  I'm ready to be done.  I'm ready to graduate.

See ya soon, May 8th.  I'm coming for ya.
