Graduation and Final Words
After five years, laughs, tears, ups, downs… I am graduating college. It seems odd that we are so excited to become an adult when we turn 18 yet when I am graduating with my Bachelor’s degree with the expectation to get a job and find my own place, the one time we have to grow up is exactly when I do not want to do. I am excited to go onto the next phase of my life yet it is bittersweet. My college experience was amazing. It was hard, but I met amazing people, had great jobs, and was able to do many awesome things.If I could leave you with a few words of advice it would have to be these three things. One, always remain humble. There will be times where you are on top and then there will be times when you are on bottom. It is important to always lift a hand when people need help no matter what positions or awards you may rise to and receive. Second, never forget to make time for the fun stuff. I waited too long to go sunset kayaking and when I finally made time my last year, I regretted not doing it sooner. Go to the beach, finger paint, treat yourself to a dinner, it will only make your college experience that much better. And finally, treat people well. Whether it is the custodian, your professors or other students- you would be amazed at how far a helping hand and a kind word can go. With those little life tidbits I hope you enjoy your college experiences. Make the absolute most of it as it goes by in a blink of an eye.
