This semester is going to be my weirdest one yet. Not only is my schedule a little bonkers due to my internship, but it’s also my last semester of college (unless I decide to go to grad school, but that’s doubtful).
When that hits my mind, it hits hard. This is my last semester of school. It’s a whirlwind of emotions because on the one hand, come May I’ll finally be done with school and be able to get a job in the field I love. Then on the other hand, I’ll be done with school. It’s weird, exciting, scary… everything. Think about it, for a 23-year old who has been in school since she was 5… that’s pretty much changing my entire lifestyle.
Though I will say, it will be so nice to not have to worry about papers or grades anymore.
So am I a little scared of what will happen after graduation?
I won’t lie, I’m a little scared, but I know I’ll be more relieved than anything when I get my hands on that degree.
I guess I’m a bit anxious as to what will lie ahead once I graduate… thinking about it now anyway. I can’t help but wonder what job I’ll end up getting or if I’ll actually move down south (like my mom and I have been saying since I was in high school). Trying to imagine what is going to happen post-graduation now is the most scary part of it all because there’s no way I can know what is going to happen. So I’m pretty darn thankful that I know God knows what lies ahead for me in my life, and I trust Him fully.
“‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord. ‘They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.'” – Jeremiah 29:11
God has never failed me before. From putting me in the hands of the right doctors to directing my path to the right high school to showing me what type of career to pursue, He’s always guided me through the right doors and closed the wrong ones. I know without a doubt that He’ll continue to do the same for the rest of my life, in every area.
So really, the weirdest part of this semester is that for the first time in three years, I don’t have a 9:30am class.
Not that I’m complaining ;)
