A very significant event transpired this past week. An event a lifetime in the making. One which is, though it's been almost a week, still settling in. That event, of course, was none other than my College graduation. Last Saturday (May 19th), at 10:40am, I walked across the stage with some of my closest friends as we commemorated the completion of our college careers.
It still feels so foreign to me. In theory, nothing has changed. I still have to wake up at the same time every morning. I still have to go to work every day. Only now, when my work for the day is over, I don't have to head to class. I don't have to stress over assignments. I am now free.
It's funny how fast this day arrived; how far I've come. I remember vividly a conversation I had a year ago with someone who was very important to me at the time. A year seemed like forever, but here I stand... a college graduate.
