Along with about 90% of people asking me why I want to leave Indiana/America there’s another large portion of people who insist on telling me that college is the best time of my life.
I mean, don’t get me wrong- the naps, the freedom to decide what path we want to take, the midnight runs (just kidding I fall asleep at 10) to IHop, and being surrounded by your friends and that realization that suddenly… you can actually do whatever you want. It’s all great. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here at UIndy. Really, I have. But I certainly do not want to stay here forever.
If I actually thought that being in college was the peak of my life…that it all goes down from here… I think I would be really depressed. I believe I have a lot to look forward to in the future. I mean if you do it right, you should enjoy most of your life… not just 4ish years of it…am I right?
Why is graduating from college some sort of death sentence for our happiness?
I admit that I am rather naïve considering that I’m still in college and haven’t experienced that dreaded “real world” yet… but I still look forward to it. There are endless possibilities and I am so excited and ready to start the next chapter of my life.
College has been great, but I can’t stay here forever, nor would I want to.
So please stop telling me that I’m crazy for being ready to graduate.
I refuse to think of the “real world” as a terrifying place where dreams go to die.
It’s your life, it’s your future, and it’s completely up to you how you perceive it.
You can’t enjoy the present if you’re constantly focused on the past.
So let’s all get excited because it’s time for us to SHINE.
That was so cheesy I almost threw up.
