All through your life you enter in and our of different phases, you have to say goodbye to people you love and move on. I’ve had to say a lot of tough goodbyes in my day, so you would think I would’ve gotten pretty good at it. But I suck.
Yesterday was my last day of class as an undergrad, true I still have finals, but my official last class ended at 3:15pm on thursday the 28th of May. I’m ready to cash out my credits and graduate. I’ve been ready for a while to move on from college. I just never expected it would be so hard.
Everyone will tell you that college was the best time of their life, and although I thoroughly have enjoyed the past four years…I’m not sure if I’m ready to give it that title. Instead of enjoying the usually college extracurriculars I’ve been participating in pre-professional groups, internships, flying off during summers, and staying up late at night to finish last-minute assignment. And I wouldn’t change a thing. I’ve met some pretty fantastic people along the way who have made it all worth while.
I didn’t plan on my goodbye to be coinciding with Micheal Scott’s, and after watching that episode (if you didn’t cry you have no soul) I’m not ready to say it. I thought that I could handle saying goodbye to the people I’ve been working with, the people who have become like a happy little blogging family to me, but I’m not even ready to say goodbye to my version of Toby…although it will probably just be a quick email.
It’s saying goodbye to people I have been in constant contact with for a year and a half now. Reading and editing about their interpretations of different events, and all of our dinner meetings from last semester just seem so far away. Regardless D-day is coming may 4th, so I think I will just have issue handy..or at least keep a plastic bag for myself close by.
It’s hard to say goodbye to a phase in your life, no matter how long or short it was. And for the most part you don’t really get to choose when it is coming, well unless you are in school then you can kind of gage it. Even though I may be ready to graduate from college….it’s still going to suck when the goodbyes starting rolling in.
