I graduate from my undergrad in 31 days and am so stressed… 31 days…
Of course, I am stressed over getting a job and finishing up with good grades but what I am more nervous about is transitioning to this new part of my life where I am no longer in some form of an education system. I mean think about it, from the age of 5 years old until 18 I was “forced” to go to school – it was required, and it was the norm to finish high school. That is 13 years of your life where you get accustomed to education as your norm. Then I just spent another 4 years in undergrad continuing my education – which in total is 17 years of my life and I am only 22. Basically, for the past 17 years, I have followed a routine, had resources to help me navigate through the world, and have had opportunities basically handed to me because of my education.
Truthfully, I decided not to go to grad school for 2 reasons…
Reason 1. The cost is astronomical.
Reason 2. I cannot just continue my education because I am scared to be in the real world and not in my comfortable routine or bubble that the education system provides me with.
Anyway… I just wanted to talk about what I have learned in college (not like derivatives and proofs but more of the life lessons)
I learned so much more than this but I think that I will save the rest for a book if I ever decide to write one.
Be sure to let me know if you can relate to any of the points that I mentioned above! I would love to hear your opinion J Always remember that no one can take away your education from you no matter how bad times can get!
Thank you for checking out my post & keeping up with me! I have so much love for all of you.
