I never thought it would come
So, I was walking around BYU's campus the other day and it really hit me--this is my last semester of classes. I won't be walking to classes every day. I won't have to fight for a parking spot. I actually get to begin teaching; something I've been working so hard to get for the last 4 years.
I have been attending school for the last 17 years and I will no longer be a student in just 5 short months. As I was pondering this I thought back on my school experience (elementary school through college) and had so many sweet memories of teachers, friends, graduations, and so much more. I never thought I'd say this, but I'm so grateful for school. It's helped me become the person that I am today and helped me reach my goals of becoming a teacher. I know school is tough and hard and I've mumbled about it many many times, but I'm so grateful for this opportunity that I've had. I entered this school to learn, and BYU has helped me have the tools I need to go forth to serve. I'm excited to finally say this: I'M A COLLEGE GRADUATE!
