Coming From A College Graduate…

Whew.
It’s been a long 4 years and an even longer past week.
But graduation is FINALLY over and I can breathe again.
I can SLEEP again.
And I am not having to do Summer classes to it’s basically a miracle but y’all…
I FINALLY GRADUATED AND I PASSED WITH ALL A’s!!!
passing out

I was a hot mess coming up to graduation.
What if I don’t pass this class?
I don’t wanna walk – I won’t know anyone.
I’m stressed.
WHAT IF I FAIL?!
etc.. etc..
I slept like, maybe a few that whole week leading up to graduation, I was grouchy and nervous and terrified.
It was a nightmare and I didn’t even want to be around myself.
I talked to hardly anyone, I was basically shutting everyone out in fear of failing and being tired and not wanting to take out my anxiousness on anyone else.
It was too much!
I was too much.
STRESS CAN TAKE OVER and it sucks.

Once graduation day came (super early that morning, might I add) I was sleepy and tired and grouchy and nervous and scared.
But I was pretending I was fine.
We got there and Haley was waiting for me so we could sit together (yay a friend!) and I started to feel better.
Until it was time to walk.
We were all like OMG THIS IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING I AM GOING TO PASS OUT.
But we didn’t – we survived.
It was long and boring but we got to walk and we got the cheers and we got the emotions and we graduated.
WE GRADUATED!!!
A lot of selfies were taken and I will include them now.

You’re welcome – we’re so cute.  ha!

We got home for my party after we did lunch with the family and I was POOPED!
I mean, it was rough.
I stayed up as long as I could and I was like well guys GTG and I went in and went to bed.
I WAS SO TIRED and I still am.
The past 3 nights I have slept like a champ.
I thought I was over my sleep deprived-ness but no, last night I fell asleep on the couch at 9:30 and if you know me you know that time is NEVER bedtime.
Ever.
I need like a week to recover or more.
I didn’t realize HOW much it had taken out of me, but, it had and I’m recovering…. maybe.

But now it’s back to the normal life.
Work.
Home.
Eat.
Sleep.
Repeat.
I am planning on doing NOTHING school related this Summer (except working there) and I plan on relaxing before my Masters degree starts.
I definitely earned it.

Happy Graduation to everyone who graduated and a BIG thank you to everyone who was there for me (and didn’t knock me out) during all this time!

XOXO
