I’m Okay Now (Trust Me)

One of the biggest most annoying things I had to deal with about being a college student longer than two years, is having to deal with the most annoying, and most anxiety giving question in the world: “When are you going to graduate?” Oh, and thats not even the worst one, how about hearing from your teachers or fellow students: “Wow! You’re still here?”

Processed with VSCO with a6 presetSeriously, They make it seem like I have been there for six years or maybe since World War I. I understand my parents need to feel the need of accomplishment of seeing their daughter achieve one of the biggest moments of her life (and theirs..) but having to hear it from people around me makes me feel like I am a failure in life and the amount of anxiety it gives me is not even funny.

Processed with VSCO with a6 presetThankfully, I walk around school with a big grin on my face now hoping, no, praying for that annoying question to come up. Why? because this girl will be graduating this December. YES FINALLY. I spend three years in college and I am happy to announce that I will be receiving my highly anticipated bachelors degree. All I can say now is that my parents treat me a little bit nicer than they did before, and are no longer in a big rush to kick me out of the house.

Processed with VSCO with a6 presetI know many of you that are in college have heard this question just like me, specially if you have been studying for more that 5 years. Listen to me, it doesn’t matter how fast you go as long as you finish. Many students don’t even receive the opportunity of attending college, but you still manage to hang on an keep going? That is adMayrable lol see what I did there? I’m so punny..

Processed with VSCO with a6 presetIt is your problem on how fast you will succeed. Don’t ever let anyone make you feel stupid for taking a class more than once. We all learn at different paces and trust me when I say, If I can do it, ME, a girl who has been an average C student most of her life, I promise you that you will too. I believe in you. Don’t let anything stop you.

Processed with VSCO with a6 presetPray for me to stop procrastinating and do all my school homework. With this post I also have an announcement. I won’t be blogging as much (not like I have before). I need to focus this next three months on graduating. Maybe I will post some outfits but there wont be many words just photos. I hope you understand. I am coming to an end of a chapter in my life and you know what they say… there is always a masterpiece after a mess. So, here goes to the messiest three months of my life.

    Congratulations on getting to graduate in Dec! That is awesome. Don’t let those comments get to you! The average student now takes 4.5 years to graduate. This is the time in your life when you need to be experimenting with figuring out what you want to do with your life. It took me 5 years to graduate college and my husband 7.5 years. You’re doing awesome and no matter when you graduate when you cross that stage, it’s going to feel amazing!

    I think 5 years is more normal now for graduating, an accomplishment is ALWAYS an accomplishment and you’re almost there. Enjoy your last few months in college, you go girl!
