Late Sunday night, I clicked "Submit" for the very last time.
And with that simple click of my mouse my life as an undergrad came to a close. I had been looking forward to that moment for so long and while it was freeing, it was also bittersweet.
Over the past 2 1/2 years I have been reading, studying, writing, reading, studying, writing all for this very moment and now that it's here it is bittersweet.
I can understand why most graduates feel lost after graduation. After spending so many years spent studying, writing, working hard--then all of sudden it all abruptly stops. And while you knew this day would eventually come it always seemed so distant, so far into the future. And now that it is finally here, staring you in the face it can be intimidating. You are left at cross roads as to what to do next. There are so many opportunites in front of you and you become so overjoyed with the possibilities and yet scared you might fail and the last few years would have been a waste.
And so as I say goodbye to my undergrad days I look foward to a new beginning, though bittersweet, yet so full of hope. I may not land my dream job, but that does not mean I should not try my best at what opportunities may come my way.
