my talents include sleeping eating and thinking of a good comeback two hours after someone has said something rude to me
Even the important ones, like being able to start a new day in the morning. We really take things for granted.
It’s weird how each person you encounter has at least some effect on your life. Even looking at graduation photos of people that I am not very close with makes my heart ache. I feel distraught, thinking that I won’t see these people again. They have their whole lives ahead of them. New beginnings. New adventures. I’m happy for them. Yet, I want them to stay.
“Before you know it, it’ll be your turn.” A senior said this to me a few hours ago. These were the words that made me think. I have two years of college left. I need to appreciate these years. It’s so easy to be caught up with exams and stress. To this day, I’m scared of what the future holds. I’m still uncertain about my major. I’m still confused about what I want to do in the future. I feel weak because of all these uncertainties. It’s always reassuring to have a plan.
Maybe I’ll never figure myself out. But you know what? I might get there halfway. I might discover at least some of my passions, if not all. And even if I don’t get there before college ends, it does not matter.
I will be fine.
When it’s my turn to graduate, I want to look back and appreciate the work that I have put into my college years. Of course, I will have regrets. But these regrets will only make me stronger.
Congrats class of 2013! I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.
Thanks for impacting my life.
