Thank you for those who still read my blog. This blog goes to you.
I finally did it. I finished 5-years of college. No, I did not fail a year or decided I wanted to take a break mid-way. I joined a 5-year program - no summers, just school and internships/co-op. I say appropriate blogging because here I am in Babbio Lounge. The place I stayed my whole Senior year - eating, hanging out, studying and sleeping. This may sound cheesy, but for the past few days I could not stay away from this room. I’m done with finals yet I find myself back at school in this lounge.
It’s the skyline that really gets me. They finally put up the spire up on the Freedom tower and it is blinking that red light on top that reminds me of when I was a kid always looking for the twin towers before I slept. So here it is - the big step. I read all these blogs about graduation with the .gifs of how college graduates are supposed to feel and I could not help but laugh. IT IS TRUE. Even though I wanted to get out of this place, I don’t want to leave it. It’s a big big world out there and I am ready to step into it. I believe this school has prepped me in so many ways to realize what the real world expects of us.
I officially got the phone call from the Human Resources department of my company that I start July 8, 2013. I only get one month to breathe and then start this new step of adulthood. I’m ready. I have worked so hard from grammar school to high school to college to make it to this point and I am finally here. I am 23 and employed.
Thanks Stevens for everything. 9 more days <3
