Four years. Three different colleges. Two supportive families. One degree. Over the past few years, I have been admittedly ungrateful for my opportunity to go to school. All I was hoping and seeking was to make this little business thrive and sometimes my schooling got in the way of that! Well when you take seven classes in your last semester of college so that you can “just be done already” it’s easy to forget how fortunate you are. There are a lot of people that don’t have the opportunity to graduate college with their bachelor’s degree, and so today, I’m choosing to focus on how lucky I am that I’ve had the opportunities that I have, even if at the time I wasn’t very grateful for them.
I’m grateful for the people that I’ve met in college, the opportunities I’ve been given, and for the classes that I never expected to like or learn anything from. And, would this really be a graduation post without a reference to “SCHOOL’S OUT FOR-EVAAA!”?? Thank you, Alice Cooper. Thank you to all of my sweet friends, teachers, and family who have supported me through all of my schooling. After 16 years of school, I’m officially done!!
