I can’t remember if Tiffany and I were in my dorm room, her dorm room, or the community living room down the hall from our rooms, but one night early on in our college experience we made a pact to graduation college. We had to graduate or join the Marines. Tiffany fulfilled her end of the bargain last December (you go girl!) and today I will fulfill my end! This morning she text messaged me, “I’m so happy for you and proud that you don’t have to join the Marines or something.” And I laughed out loud and texted back, “I almost blogged about our pact!” haha And she said I definitely should. So I am! :)
Many days during my college career I felt this day would never come. Even this semester, I had days where I felt so overwhelmed that I thought I would never graduate. On Tuesday, after my last college final, I was so relieved! As I walked back to my car, it was surreal to know that I would never have to be on campus for a class again. It also felt good to realize just how much I had accomplished. It’s so weird that today will finally close this chapter. I know that when classes start back in January it will really hit me that I don’t have to go back. I do not know life without school, but I’m really excited about it! :) I could ramble on and on about all the great people I have met in college and all the great memories I made, but I’ll save that for another day.
Thank you, Mom & Dad.
