Well, today is the first anniversary of my graduation from college. I cannot believe an entire year has elapsed since that great day. It was such an exciting experience, but now life seems rather dull in comparison. This year’s graduation took place this last weekend, and I was able to attend part of the ceremonies. It was a very strange feeling witnessing all the excitement of that great event, but only being a spectator this time. I’m not sure why, but I guess maybe it’s the fact that I won’t experience something like that again. Somehow you feel like the completion of something as significant as college is the greatest thing you can imagine, but then it quickly comes to an end and then life must go on. But I must remind myself that something far greater than a graduation will take place, and afterwards life will not go on as usual. Everything will be radically altered for the better. That is something to truly be excited about. And I believe it will happen very soon.
