Well, it’s here guys. Yep, graduation. As well as my final COBBlog post.
There are so many things running through my mind. Other than the fact that I got the keys to an apartment this past Wednesday, I have no clue where I am headed in life after today since I don’t have a job yet. There are so many options and possibilities. So many things that I could just decide I want to do. The trick is just figuring out how to get there.
Over the past four years at Concordia I haven’t just gained an education that led me to my two degrees (I double majored in Marketing and Communication), but I’ve gained many friends, mentors, and a huge support network that is cheering for me to do great things in life. Probably one of the best things I did in my time at Concordia is get part time jobs in more than one office on campus. Each of the wonderful staff members in those offices have given me lots of support and encouragement throughout my time here when it came to getting my homework done to now where I’m at the point of trying to find a full time job. They’ve cheered me on when I’ve had interviews, and have shared many uplifting thoughts and encouragement when things haven’t quite turned out the way I had hoped.
So, as I say goodby to being a student, and hello to being an alumnae of Concordia, I am reminded by the people around me how incredibly blessed I have been to attend school here, and to have gotten to know the people that I know. Although it is hard to say goodbye for now, I am excited (and extremely nervous) to start the next chapter of my life and see where God leads me next in life. To all of you that have followed my stories the past four years, thank you for reading them, and for all the support you have given me. It really means a lot!
Congratulations, Concordia class of 2013! We did it!
