My time at KU has flown by. You always think you will have more time but you won’t. I realized that this weekend after my final presentation. I realized that presentation was my last in my undergrad career and suddenly I realized that I had basically closed a chapter in my life. There wasn’t anymore time. So I went out with my friends that night and danced like I haven’t danced in years. Why? Because I had put it off. Always saying I would do it later but right now I have homework. Suddenly I didn’t have homework. I just had time to dance the last time.
So as I go into finals this week I’m not dreading them. I’m smiling because I’ve had my time in college and it’s been wonderful. It’s where I became who I wanted to me and where I learned who I am. It’s where I’ve cried, laughed, screamed and everything in-between. I don’t have to close this chapter this week but I know it’s time. So here’s to the final week of undergrad.
At the end of this week I will leave everything I know in this phase called college. The friends I’ve met. The people I’ve loved. We walk together in a ceremony and then everyone goes their own separate ways. Some of the lucky ones have a job and can’t wait to start their new adventure. Some of us are nervous, apprehensive and just relieved that we didn’t flunk out. We all know deep down that some of these friendships aren’t going to last but we cling into them because we need someone else to understand what we are going through. In five or ten years we might not be friends but it doesn’t matter because we just need each other right now.
