With A Little Help From My Friends

January 19, 2011

 

Well, my final semester in undergrad has finally begun and I am left feeling excited, nervous, sad, and happy at the same time. I never felt this way about high school graduation. Maybe because I knew the friends I had from high school would be my friends in college and those I wasn’t friends with I would never care about. For the most part, this was true. However, college has been a different experience. Although challenging and frustrating at times, I have had the best experiences while I was in college. I have made a lot of true friends and I have grown a lot as a person. This has not been made clear than when I hang out with my college friends. We all get along so well that it is “clique” ish at times. But we have laughed together, cried together, complained together, and encouraged each other. I guess my nervousness comes from the thought that I will not find this same type of group ever again in life. This is completely discouraging about the future and makes me want to let time stand still and not move on. But I have to move on.

Even though I have made stronger friendships in college than I did in high school, I must still keep somewhat of the same attitude i had about leaving college. I am going to bigger and better things. The friends I’ve made in college will not disappear. I will get invitations to all of their weddings and they will be invited to mine. My closest and dearest friends will, hopefully, come visit me and I will visit them. And my friends who will still be around good ol’ S-town will see my face every once and a while because my parents are here. So, I should look at graduation as not the end but a beautiful beginning.

On a slight side note: The first two days of school have been fun. I am interested to see how the semester goes. I am really glad to see everyone and I am going to enjoy EVERY minute of my last semester.

Have a good rest of the week everyone!
