If I look back to this time three years ago, I thought this day would never come. I am actually starting my last year here at Cabrini. I am a senior and I am going to graduate in about nine months. Wow. It is kind of unbelievable.
In nine months I will be done with school and I will be getting a “real” job. No more summers, no crazy weekday nights with my friends and no more partying ’till all hours of the night.
The responsibility factor is going to be raised and as of right now I don’t know if I am ready for that.
I can say that I floated through high school. I was told I had “senioritis” since the first day of my freshman year and I have to say that was probably true. When I got to college, I thought that it was so much easier than high school, which made me not slack off as much as I did in high school and that lasted for about six weeks.
Now that I only have a short time left, I have to work as hard as I ever have as my career as a student begins to end.
I’m ready to do the best that I can in this last year and I am ready to graduate, but I don’t know if I am ready for the realization that I will not be with friends everyday, joking and having fun. I will probably be sitting in an office trying to figure out what my job is and trying to figure out what it is that I want to do for the rest of my life.
I have always prayed for this time to come, a time when there would be no more homework and no more classes.
But when you think about it, it is just the same thing as school. They will just be replaced with deadlines and a class that lasts eight hours long. The bonus is the simple fact that I will be making mucho bucks instead of having to give it out.
Am I ready for this? Isn’t this the goal that I have been working towards for four years? Why wouldn’t I want to leave? Yes, I have loved my college experience and I cherish every moment that I have spent here at Cabrini College but it is time for me to move on.
It is time for me to make new moments with new people and make a new life.
The memories I have made here will stay with me but there are so many moments yet to live. So come on life, here I come.
