In a little over 24 hours, I’ll be a college graduate!
It’s really sad saying bye to all my friends..every time I run into people I have to stop and ask if it’s the last time I’ll see them before I move back home.
Also really sad is packing up my dorm room. There’s just something really depressing about seeing the last four years of my life fitting neatly into plastic bins and suitcases. It’s amazing how much random stuff I’ve acquired over the years. I hope it all fits in my car. And I hope it all fits in my room once I get home!
Baccalaureate Mass is tonight at 5:30 in the AACC, then graduation tomorrow afternoon. Then Sunday- checking out of the dorm, saying my last goodbyes, and making the drive home. I’m going to be a mess. I haven’t cried yet but I feel like all the emotion is just accumulating and when it hits, it’ll hit hard.
I guess I’m feeling a little ambivalent about graduation. Definitely bittersweet. I am so happy to have made it and accomplished this, but leaving San Antonio and all my best friends is going to be so hard!
My family is getting into town today for Mass, so hopefully they will take pity on me and help me clean up the room and get my stuff to the car!
