As it draws closer to graduation, I realize how much I am going to miss this place. I know I complain about a lot of the administrative stuff, but Cabrini has really become a place I can call home, despite all the messed up things about it.
When I left high school, I dreaded going away to college because I didn’t want to make new friends and have a new life. I was fine with my old life. Four years later, I find myself in the same predicament. I have made friends here that I will have, hopefully forever.
These are the same people who I thought I would never find when leaving high school and the same people who sometimes know more about me than I do about myself. My closest friends from this school are the same ones who lived on the same floor in the same dorm with me freshman year. It’s where all the crazy memories and amazing friendships started, Woodcrest.
The girls that I have met at Cabrini have stuck with me through crazy roommates, getting in trouble, embarrassing moments and much more, not to mention those mornings that we would spend trying to put the pieces together of what happened the night before.
We have been through so much in these past four years and now I am starting to feel the same way that I did when approaching high school graduation, except now, it’s even scarier because I know there aren’t four more crazy years to look forward to.
In a month, my life will revolve around finding a real job and putting college memories in the past. To tell you the truth, I don’t know if I am ready to do this. It’s hard to think of myself as a college graduate. I look like I’m 16 and having a good time is still a number one priority in my book.
I like staying up until 4 a.m. talking with my friends about anything and everything and waking up for class a few hours later. It is what I do and what I have done for the past four years.
Whatever happens after graduation, I know I will never forget the friendships I have made in college and the amazing memories that I am walking away with. So for all of you who have made these possibly the best four years of my life, thank you.
