Just three days ago, I graduated college. It seems unreal at this point as it has not fully sunk in. The last semester of my senior year was a huge struggle as I could not find enough time to get everything done that I felt I needed to. I had do my homework, complete my senior capstone projects, study for exams, uphold my leadership positions and attend campus event, all while trying to maintain relationships with the people I care about.
People always warn you about how difficult the real world is and that you should soak up the time you have in college while you are there, but they never warn you about your last semester when everyone around you is on edge and it seems like you are constantly drowning, trying to stay afloat.
There were weeks when everything seemed to be piling up and that I wouldn't be able to get everything done, but I am here to tell you - I always did! At times, college was a very bumpy ride, but I gained many valuable skills I can now take with me to into the real world.
For me, the real world starts tomorrow as I move to the city. As a girl who grew up in a very small town, this will all be very new to me. Luckily I have a very close friend who will be joining me in the city. I cannot wait for the adventures to come! I am very excited for the next chapter in my life!
