i graduated.

It's official. I graduated. I've ended chapter one and am now on to chapter two. 
Now on to the "Big Girl World". Now on to real life. 

I feel slightly indifferent about the whole situation. 
I mean, I am excited to start something new in life, to grow up. 
But I'm afraid too. 
I feel old to be honest. And I do not like that. 
I have my first job and I hate it. But it makes the money I need for college. 
My curfew is now gone, kind of. 
And I have not one, but TWO bank accounts. 
That is the extent that my "growing up" has been so far. I know that's not much but it's really weird.

I'll miss playing in the cornfields with my sister, I'll miss sitting with my boyfriend during lunch, I'll miss sleeping in in the summer, I'll miss my friends, I'll miss high school. 

But I'm excited.
I'm excited to be on my own, learn new things, accomplish all I've ever wanted, to be in control of my schedule, to make new friends, to grow.

Life is changing so fast and I'm not entirely sure how to handle it. I guess we'll find out.

The only thing I know for sure is that I am blessed in everything I have and God has a plan for me. I'm just hoping "Talk Show Hosting" is in that plan.

  10. Hey, I just graduated too...but from college! It's definitely a weird feeling, and it's nice to know that someone else also feels a little unsure about this whole graduation thing, since everyone else I know just seems so excited. Congrats, college is WAY more fun than high school! :)

  11. It is scary!
    I had a rough time at high school until my final year. Hands down best year of my life so far!!! It just made it all that harder to leave and honestly, it's still scary!! I still feel like I should be there. I still pine for that time again. I'm kind of afraid of moving forward which might explain why I keep putting it off?
    I'm putting Uni off for a second year...I will finish it next year, but...it's hard to explain! I think I'm afraid to commit to becoming a grown up so I'm just running free for the time being :) it works for now.
