In the midst of celebrating that I finally graduated college and accomplished one of my biggest goals in life one of my fellow Rat Pack members said this to me, “Has it hit you yet, like you’re really done with A&T. But before you answer my question, I want you to really think about that and soak it in.” That’s some real deep stuff to think about while you’re in the club getting drunk and every female around you has on just enough clothes for your imagination to fill in the blanks. But when he said that I did soak it in and I took it a step further. I put myself in other people’s shoes and realized that a lot of my fellow graduates will be hung over in the morning, and I don’t mean from the large amounts of alcohol they consumed, but rather from realizing they have completed college and have no clue what they are about to do next. For some people this might make them have a young adult crisis because they never thought about anything beyond college. For all my fellow 2011 graduates don’t look at your graduation as the end of the something, instead look at it as the beginning; take advantage of this summer and have fun, but most importantly figure out where you want to be in life. To most this summer is the last time you will have real free time before starting your career or furthering your education. If you’re not in either one of those situations it’s time to discover your calling or passion. I think one of the reasons I didn’t go through a “Graduation Hangover” is because I kept in mind how last summer a simple drunk convo inspired a friend to discover his calling for law school and how he took that year after graduating and made that happen. So in other words just because you may not have the job you want or may not be going straight to grad school, its not too late! Also it feels good knowing I will be pursuing my Masters Degree this fall. So to close this out I will like to say if you don’t know what you are about to do with your life, don’t panic it will come to you. Just stay motivated and never settle. Congrats to all of my fellow 2011 Graduates!
