And I’m outta here

I just got back from my final exam. I’m done with my undergraduate degree. I just have some graduation ceremonies to attend this weekend and then I’m really done. I’ll be just another college graduate with a degree in computer science heading off into the vast workforce.

As I left my last exam today, I couldn’t help feeling nostalgic as I walked across the campus. It was my last time really walking around the campus — sure, I’ll be back this weekend, but I won’t be carrying my backpack and educational materials, so it won’t really count. I started getting stupidly sentimental, such as thinking to myself, “Oh, this is the last time I walk up the steep hill in front of the Engineering Building” and such. But it’s true nonetheless. I spent the last four years of my life here, going through all the trials and tribulations of a college career, and now I’m heading off, permanently. I’ll miss this place, but at the same time, I’m glad that it’s over. I didn’t put four years of my life into this to not be in the position I’m in right now.
