I am aware I have been missing for a week, but it is because I was home for my graduation. I have missed home so much so I really felt like I had to be present and off my social media profiles.
Anyway, I can’t believe I have finally made it. When I first started university, I was always thinking of the day I would graduate, and it seemed so far away, but it was something I wanted to reach. Three and a half years later, here I am, walking down to get my diploma with my parents and my boyfriend in the crowd. It is crazy.
It is a bit non-racking the fact that I am no longer a student, and that in fact, I am full grown working woman. I have been since I finished all my classes in January, but I was still using the “Oh, I still don’t have the diploma so I am still a student” excuse. But that is not going to work anymore, is it?
University has been the best and worst time of my life. Yes it is stressful, sleeping is not your first priority and you can get saturated. But I have grown as a person and as a professional. I have pushed my boundaries and I have found myself. I know what I like and what I don’t. I have learnt how to make decisions, standing up for myself and learning how to appreciate my effort and the results that come with it.
The people I have met are incredible and although each one of us is doing their own thing and we are living in different countries, I am so sure we will still be in touch.
Now it is time to make a life of my own, and work towards the dreams I have always had. It is extremely scary but exciting at the same time. It’s one of those things that you dream when you are little: all the things you want to do, the lifestyle you see yourself having, the amount of travelling you want to do… now it is time to work for it and turn these dreams to reality.
