an end to a chapter

this is me, on my last day as a college student.
after transferring schools 2x's, moving apartments/houses 6x's, changing my major 5x's, getting married & having a baby, i am  d o n e.

i took my last two finals today & couldn't be more relieved. i've felt so much anxiety these past couple of weeks, it's insane. i've never been so nervous for finals before, & i think it's because it's my last semester. you'd think by now i would have learned not to procrastinate. but no. i still leave studying to the day of the test, & paper writing to the day that it is due. but it's all over, thankfully.

school has been the life i've always known. it's surreal to think that it's actually over. i've been a little sad thinking of it coming to an end. i love school. not the papers & test aspect, but learning & being in school. i'm happy that i didn't rush through it. i took my time. took all the courses i wanted to take. tested different majors, all art related. experienced a million new & different things. found my passions & learned new skills. i've grown a lot.

it's crazy to think about all of the time i have spent in school. it's taken me longer than it takes most, but it's been a really amazing experience. looking back at the time i've spent in college is sort of crazy. even though a lot has changed in every aspect of my life, i still feel like the 18 year old i was when i very first began.

    change and the unknown can be so scary. reading along i caught myself nodding in agreement - i am graduating in december and i'm currently finishing up my last semester on campus (i'm spending my fall semester in spain), and i'm already feeling very anxious and uncertain about what's next to come. i love school! and learning! i could stay here forever! haha i know exactly how you feel. but it's all so exciting! adventure awaits. i'm happy for you!

    I'm so happy for you. I love your blog, I found it through other blog and I've been following you for a while, so I actually feel like we are friends, haha. I studied arts too, and finished a couple years ago.
    btw-I live in Spain, so maybe we could have a coffee when you move. Let me know if you need a tour! :)
