I just don't like the pressure to get searching for those things...
But hey, I'm graduating! A BA in Journalism from Christopher Newport University with a minor in Philosophy/Religious Studies.
I've made plenty of friends (and some enemies) who I am going to miss (until I see them again, which I'll blindly assume will happen more often than it will, at least for the summer). I've learned a lot about myself and the things I believe in, the world around me and other people.
I am definitely not who I was when I moved in as a freshman, and seeing those marks in my life where I grew is exciting. And it is that fact that makes me realize that I can continue on in life, to develop myself so I make my mark on the world, however small (or large), and a mark for myself.
Granted, that is all pretty scary. I am pretty sure that were I to be handed $5,000 right now, I'd go escape and hike Europe for a few months, escaping all this madness and being able to be free of worry for just a little longer. No joke.
(Three cheers for auto-publishing drafts!)
