My mind is fogged and running like clock work as my final two exams for my undergraduate degree are quickly approaching. I have always dreamt of the day that I run out of my last exam and have the biggest beaming smile on my face knowing that I have finally achieved my goal! However, in four days my 3 year dream will be a reality. It’s nerve-racking to imagine because never did I actually believe that this fantasy would be my reality.
When you’ve worked for something for so long you forget about how far you have truly come! I started my undergraduate degree on the other side of the country, not knowing anyone. After a year I had formed close friends that had become family to me. I then transferred to a university back home and completed my final two years.
It’s so surreal to believe the stress and heartache and overwhelming relief will soon be over, and a new adventure awaits. As excited as I am to complete studying for awhile it’s also scary. Since I was 5 years old i have been schooled and then straight into university. I have never experienced life outside of books, endless assignments and exams.
I thought at the beginning of undergrad that I would know where I want to be in the future, that I would have a path set out for me. Unfortunately I have become more confused, unsure of where my true passion sits.
I am excited for the future, to work full time, have a stable life and then to embark on a overseas adventure of a lifetime! However, now all I have to do is wait 4 more days… and hopefully pass! 😛
I cannot wait to celebrate the past 3 years and for my new future, wherever it may lead me!
