I think I blinked during my high school graduation and suddenly became a junior in college.
It doesn’t seem quite right, that I should be halfway done with college. I feel like I just got here. And I know I’ll probably blink before bed tonight and suddenly be standing at commencement, ready (or not) to go out into the world with a college degree.
My, does time fly. Completely cliché, but entirely true… as clichés usually seem to be.
This year was awesome in many ways. I got to sing in choir again, make some new friends and keep in contact with old, and take some pretty amazing classes. I learned a bit about the history of the English language, read some amazing pieces (classics and student works), did a research paper on Harry Potter, and even learned a bit about a fetal pig. I can’t wait to continue to learn more and widen my world view and take some more really, really cool courses. I’m grateful for two more years, but I’m also a bit nervous. I know they will go super quickly.
I’m getting a bit ahead of myself now though. For now, I’m going to enjoy summer… watch some movies and read a ton of good books (I’m working on my reading list for break, and I’m so excited to delve into new stories and authors!). I’m going to take advantage of the opportunities I have at work. And then, in the fall, I’ll return to the dorm and return to my friends and classes. And I’ll try to soak up every minute… which is hard sometimes, but it doesn’t hurt to try.
And eventually, I’ll go to the next step, whatever and wherever that may be. But, I’ll figure that out in a few more blinks. 🙂
