Now what —Tuesday, October 18, 2016.

Today started out as any other normal day. I woke up feeling extra-exhausted and extra-tired, as if a truck had ran over my body. Lately, it’s been getting tough waking up from my bed. My body aches and I haven’t been feeling too good. Maybe I built too much stress up from the last few weeks. It’s been getting to a common occurrence. I need some sort of release.

Work was pretty productive today. I got to accomplish everything I wanted to do, and for the most part, left nothing unattended on my bucket list. I love these types of days. I like to set mini goals for myself, nothing too crazy, and tackle them. It makes me feel as if I did something to impart in helping my team. I left my shift feeling pretty happy, although I didn’t get to exactly leave on time.

Probably the most exciting and important part of my day was trying to get my college degree. It felt surreal, I didn’t cry, and I wasn’t mad. I made the last faithful journey I made ten thousand times before to my college. This time not as a student, but as a graduate of my Alma Matter. It was definitely a different experience. My school has been in the limelight lately and been notorious for creating buzz. Some controversy has arisen and scandalous activity has been present in my school. But on my way to the financial aid office, I noticed a sign reading an open house for my school. Boy, does time fly. I remember being that student just visiting this school, wondering if this was going to be my next school for the next four years. It was more then that: it wasn’t just my school, it was my home. Lots of memories were made here. Lots of friendships were created.

It’s really been a pleasure and a bittersweet feeling. I thought I would be more emotional, but today I just felt contempt. For me, this wasn’t the end goal, this was just the beginning. This is the beginning to a brighter future. I never thought I would see this day, but I am glad I did. It’s really special.

I’ve always had clear cut direction towards where I should go with my life. When I was in middle school, that was high school. When I was in high school, that was college. Now that I’m done, I’m not really entirely sure where to go.

Now what is the title of this post, for this very reason.

Thanks for listening. I know this post may not have made much sense, but this was something I needed to say. It was my little reflection onto the last four years of my life. Boy does it feel good finishing.

If nothing else, I want you to know that I am in a very good place at the moment.

Thanks for listening. See ya whenever I see ya.
