It has begun to sink in.
What has begun to sink in, you might ask?
The realization that I graduate in less than 4 months.
Today marked my last first day of college classes ever!
While I'm always a bit sad to leave home, there is nothing quite like the first day back at school! Today was a little different for me though. Today marked my last time buying school supplies for another semester (lets be honest, I'll never stop buying school supplies!) ;-) It marked the last time I'll feel the anticipation of what my classes will be like and who will be in my class. It marked the last time I will have to wait in the bookstore line for textbooks. It marked the beginning of many other lasts that I will be having over the course of the next few months.
Being a senior in high school meant more fun to look forward to in college. But the reality is starting to sink in as a senior in college about to enter the working world. I have enjoyed my past three and a half years here and while I am ready to see where the real world takes me I am really going to miss college and all of the fun times & opportunities I have had here. I'm definitely having mixed emotions... I am so ready to be done with papers, tests, group projects and meaningless work but I'm not sure I'm ready to be on my own working 9-5.
I'm sure these next four months will bring a lot of mixed emotions for me. Looking back & moving forward. I am ready to soak up these next few months, enjoy them, and ready to see what opportunities lie ahead!
Is anyone else experiencing their "lasts" too?
