This year I graduated! Today is my actual commencement ceremony and I couldn’t be more happy. I’ve already written about my experience a couple of times. I’ve talked about my journey to the end and how it’s made me feel.
I can’t help but have this overwhelming sense of accomplishment. I have it for no other reason than: I did it. I finished what I started. There was a time when I couldn’t say that about much of anything. Before, I would quit in the middle of something just because it got hard, or boring, or inconvenient. I didn’t feel like I had that option with school. I wanted to quit. I hated it. But I didn’t, because I knew it was something I needed to get to the next step.
I gained a lot of skills while I was in school. Skills I didn’t even know I would need. But the most important thing I gleaned from my college career: Follow Through.
