The Most Stressful Yet Most Rewarding Journey

There were times when I wanted to loose my mind, have breakdowns, drop out and run away from school but I just kept telling myself that in the end it would all work out... and it did.

These past four years have been the most stressful yet most rewarding years of my life. I didn't only go to college to get a degree, I went to college to challenge myself and to do something that I would be proud of. It was not easy but it was totally worth it. I had plenty of professors who did nothing for my college career but then I had others that taught me so much about myself and about what it is going to be like when I start my career. I took classes that were so pointless and a waste of $400.00 but then I took others that at the time I thought were pointless but now that I have started my career, I am using those things that I asked myself, "when will I ever use this?" . 

I did not know what to expect when I started attending college, I was SO nervous. But through college I learned how to manage my time, be organized (maybe a little too organized) and met some of the most amazing people along the way. 

No one can get through college without an amazing support system and I would not have made it as far as I did without my supportive family, friends and boyfriend. They were there to constantly remind me that I am almost done and I need to keep pushing through. But there is one thing for sure.... your last semester of your senior year is by far the WORST and most STRESSFUL. You are so close to graduating that you have dreams about it every night, you start lacking on assignments, not studying for exams and your grades slip away from your fingers. BUT just push through it. It still doesn't feel like I graduated from college and I still feel like I have assignments that are due this week but believe it or not, I think I am going to miss this chapter in my life. When I walked across that stage, it felt like such a dream and so unreal. I dreamed for this day to come and I never thought I would see the day. But now, it is time to grow up, wake up, kick a**, and repeat!

If there is one thing I could tell everyone that is going through college right now and wanting to be done... don't wish it away and never stopping chasing those dreams. These 4 years or less or even more will be the most stressful but the most rewarding and now I can look back and say I DID IT!

Congratulations to all of the 2017 graduates!!!
