Tough times never last, but tough people do.
I graduate from college on Saturday, but to make it bad, I still have two exams. To make it worse, I have an essay for one of those exams (which my professor decided to tack on last minute…aka FRIDAY)! What?! That should be illegal, I know. Anyway, I found this quote by Robert H Schuller and it seemed to fit my situation. My college years have been tough, and I mean absolutely miserable, but I’m graduating a year early, and I think that I have grown so much, learned even more, and without a doubt found what I am the most passionate about, maybe I’ll write about it sometime (teaser)?
But for now, I’d like to write about school… Everybody has been there, your assignment is due in a day, couple hours, what-have-you, and you haven’t begun it, let alone read the assignment yet, and you would just rather breakdown and cry than actually tackle the obstacle. Well, that’s me right now, and that’s actually why I began this blog to begin with. Welcome to procrastination at its finest. Hell, (sorry, this blog will have swears on it sometimes, but not the worst ones, I promise) I did my senior thesis for my bachelor of arts in a weekend. And I got an A- which was the highest grade in the class! It was excruciating, but I got over it. Now for my assignment due in 21 hours and 9 minutes… I just have to write a page, but it’s intense. Like, analyzing Anglo-Saxon intense.
The thing keeping me going at this time is that each day from today until Sunday involves something. An exam a day for two days, graduation practice on Friday, graduation on Saturday, then I get to go home to my hero! That is what is keeping me going. I don’t know how people get through college without something like that driving them. Well kudos to them, sincerely! I wish everybody finishing something up the best of luck, and hope I do well, too!
