I am on the edge of something, wondering what will happen after I take that step.
It has been a while. And this is a much-needed description of a disheartening yet breathtaking time in my life.
I will soon be welcoming the month of December with open arms, claiming that it may be my favorite month. Just maybe.
But with December comes the conclusion of a very big part of my life. It is bizarre to think that my college experience, all that I longed for for eighteen years, will soon come to an end. I am often troubled when I realize that those whom I have grown to love will soon be a memory. I will no longer survive difficult days with ease because of their support. My days will be much different. It is time to grow up. I am going to have to learn to depend upon myself. I am going to have to become a responsible adult who manages money and discusses politics. I don’t know how to manage my money and I know nothing of politics! I have not yet learned what is sufficient for me to survive the world out there. This frightens me.
I guess all I am saying is that my life, in all of its glory or lack there of, will never be the same. For I am finishing this chapter of my life a completely different person than the girl who began it. And this makes me happier than I ever thought I could be. So thank you to all who have been a part of this journey. It has been amazing. I couldn’t have asked for a better college experience.
Don’t forget me. Or else.
