this is how it ends

It's been a strange few days. I'm a graduating senior, for anyone who didn't know, and this was my last week of school.

Wednesday was my final English class (we drank beer with our professor and read aloud personal narratives reflecting on our experience). It was also my last day of work (I worked at the school library). And tonight my Graphic Design major culminates with a gallery show showcasing all our senior projects.

The realization that I'm actually graduating has been hitting me slowly. Although I've known it was coming, it didn't feel real until this week. Every time I see a professor or a classmate or have a final class, I find myself thinking, Man! I might never see this person again. Ever. 

It's really strange and makes this new phase of life I'm entering feel incredibly (and horribly) real.

I'm just really thankful that I have another week before I move out. For walks around campus, hanging out with friends, and final goodbyes.

If only we could all be students forever. :)

My dorm room, freshman year. Oh the memories!

  1. I know exactly how you feel, though I roughly still have five more weeks of school. Honestly, I'm going to miss the college people way more than in high school. I feel continually inspired when I'm at school and I'm going to miss it. :(

    1. It's hard, isn't it? And I agree- I'm definitely going to miss the college people way more than the high school people. And professors too. I left their classes feeling so inspired. It's going to be a rough transition :(

  3. This made me feel really nostalgic! I finished Uni last year and it was so sad- I loved it so much. Good things to come though and it's nice to be an adult! x

    1. Thanks for the wisdom! It's scary being at the edge of something new and looking ahead, so hearing from someone who's been there definitely helps. Just gotta keep my chin up and start looking forward to adulthood!
