Can’t believe graduation is less than two weeks away! I remember coming in as a freshman thinking I would be here for an eternity. Little did I know that time was moving faster than I could’ve ever imagined. All the memories I have accumulated over the years — from basketball, clubs, intramurals, etc. — are slowly replaying in my mind. Though this is the last dead week of my collegiate career, I am still super busy with papers, projects, and studying. You would think that after five years of college I would know better than to procrastinate, but instead I have excelled at it. As finals week approaches, I make time to reminisce on the good times shared with friends, while at the same time keeping myself from crying.

It’s hard to believe I’m leaving the comfort zone I created here and stepping out into the real world. Daily I question myself — Where do I go from here? What Is God’s plan? Will I seize every window of opportunity? How come I can’t find a summer job that will benefit me spiritually, emotionally, and physically? But what I have come to realize is that I cannot do it on my own, and I must trust and pray that God will take care of me. Recently I was accepted into my first choice for graduate school, and can hardly wait for this new chapter in my life to begin. Though graduation will be a bittersweet experience, I know it is time for me to move on. PUC will always hold a special place in my heart, and I thank God for blessing me with the opportunity to come here.
