Two Monday’s ago I started my senior and last year of undergraduate study.
Can I just say,
Everyday of school I’ve thought about the fact that I’ll be graduating soon and leaving Ball State. Which, of course, has made me feel like this:
I’ve made some awesome memories here and plan on making a ton more before I graduate. But I still can’t help feeling like graduation day will come too soon. Ball State has been my home for the past 3 years. I’ve lived here, made awesome friends here, had my share of firsts here, and learned so, so much. It’s kind of like moving away from your hometown. Ball State has been my college. I have my share of haunts here and know my way around campus like the back of my hand. In a word, Ball State is comforting.
However, I know that Ball State has successfully prepared me to breach my comfort zone and venture out into the “real world”. I used to be so worried that I wouldn’t be able to become a responsible, functioning adult since I’ve always been a bit of a rebellious kid. Luckily for me (and my parents!) I’ve grown up quite a bit. I’m ready world!
Until the time I have to leave, though, I’m going to savor my time here. And do way more awesome at Ball State.
