CAUTION: Extremely sappy post ahead because it was my last day in college yesterday (I HOPE) and I was writing this at 3 o’ clock in the morning (and we all know that’s the time when all the feels come out). Don’t say I didn’t warn you! 😆
We finally submitted our undergraduate thesis yesterday and the following quote seems really applicable to my life as of the moment…
Never make anything your everything, because once it’s gone you’ll be left with nothing.
…LOL ok I know, I’m being overly melodramatic—I should be happy beyond words right now. Don’t get me wrong, I *am,* but it’s just that I have never exerted that much effort for anything in my 20 years of existence (and for that long of a period of time), and now that it’s over I’m feeling a bit disoriented because I made my whole life revolve around it. I mean, I invested eight whole months of my life in that 171-page document. Now that I’m finally done, what the hell do I do with my life!? It also totally doesn’t help that I got so used to being with my thesis mates for the majority of the term (countless sleepovers, too) and I suddenly won’t be seeing them for an extended period of time. Talk about a major case of separation anxiety and excessive attachment! 😥
Kidding and drama aside, I swear, nothing beats the sense of accomplishment getting your thesis hardbound and submitted gives (except maybe garnering best thesis and/or getting it published ha-ha please pray for us on this one). Thank You Lord! We couldn’t be more grateful! ❤️
P.S. I guess you’ll be seeing me here more often now that school’s finally done (for good, I hope—here’s to the wishful and prayerful thinking that I don’t fail any of my other subjects this term and that I get to graduate college this June 2014), huh? Can’t wait to finally write and publish all my pending posts! 😉
