Well, I finally did it. I am a college graduate.
It feels a little anticlimactic since I’m not walking in a graduation ceremony and I don’t have a diploma yet. And I won’t get a diploma for, I don’t know, 6 months or something like that. And I don’t have a job. Or any offers. So basically I’m kind of the worst student ever. Or a typical college grad these days. I think I’ll go with that one. It sounds better.
I wonder when it will set in that I’m done with school. When the semester starts again and I don’t go back? When I have an accounting job? When my diploma comes in the mail? When I have to start paying back those student loans?
Either way, whether I believe it right now or not, I never have to step foot in a classroom again if I don’t want to. And, I can finally say that I feel good about that. Because I went back after seven years and finished my degree after person after person told me it wouldn’t happen. It did.
It just took a little longer than I thought.
