Many times in life we are too caught up in the day to day tedious cycle of our lives to take a step back and make time for ourselves. Come along with me for the ride as I get closer to experiencing the joy that comes with living life to the fullest :)
random 2am thoughts
Seeing my end of semester grades tonight and realize that everything is finally coming together for me to graduate in just a few months, I find myself thinking about what will come to be after I throw my cap in the air and close this chapter of my life definitively. What friendships will unravel, and which ones will last as my new journey begins?
Needless to say my collegiate career has been the most tumultuous era of my life. It’s a time when people who think they’ve blossomed grow, break down, and reemerge again through the relentless struggle of just four years’ time. Some of us leave transformed and others are more lost than the time they started. In this spectrum I find myself excitedly comfortable about the position I’m in. I’m graduating with not only a degree but with a skill set that I think only comes with being a polyglot, as well as certificates in areas that I’m very passionate about. Whether I choose to enter the workforce or continue my career as a student in graduate school is my call, but I wonder about who will be with me for the ride.
I’ve attached and distanced myself from so many people in my four years at Pitt. To suddenly, after four years of making Western PA my home, pack up and leave all of those bonds behind seems ludicrous to me at the moment. I can only hope that the universe will grant me the opportunity to savor the small, fleeting moments I’ll have with the friends that I cherish in the months ahead.
