forever vs. the end of my life




So this is what I wore on my last day of class. I was kind of excited because that blouse is a mint color + it has horses all over it. So naturally, that makes it awesome. The last day was a little bitter sweet, torn between being glad I was done but also thinking about how I'll miss seeing some of the people I met and I'll actually kind of miss some of the buildings. The lobby in my main classroom building has so many memories in it, I've spent so many hours before, between, and after classes sitting in that lobby. But nonetheless, I was glad it was over. No more cramming, studying, or keeping binders full of notes and handouts. I happened to think today that it's a little ironic, the feeling of forever vs. the end of my life. College kind of felt like it was going to last forever, even though I knew it had an end, I thought it would talk forever to get to that end. Now that I'm out, I have this sense of freedom like I have the rest of my life to do whatever I please with. It feels like there are so many more options and possibilities now and I'm looking forward to seeing what God places in my life next. Now that I have the rest of my life ahead of me, it feels more like I can take things one step at a time, even though that's basically what college was. It'd all a little weird and ironic but I kind of love it this way.

  2. Oh, I know exactly how you feel. I think we've just go to take things as they come, as opposed to over-thinking about the path ahead.

  4. The horse print top is so cute! A great last day of class outfit :)

    I graduated college 7 years ago (yikes!) and I do miss it at times. Some of my closest friends I have now I met in college. :)

  14. You are so cute! Love that blouse. And college ending is definitely bittersweet...I think I was actually more sad than happy for awhile, mostly about leaving my friends. But moving onto a new chapter of your life is definitely exciting...good luck :)

  18. Gosh I love love love your top!! congratulations on finishing. It's such a weird time in life isn't it? You have the entire world at your fingertips - it's just narrowing down what you want to do with yourself and when! Kind of overwhelming but fascinating at the same time :)
