I’m officially done.
And now 4 more days until we walk down RIMAC field and receive a piece of paper we’ve been working for the past 4 (or more) years. These 4 years have been an adventure full of valuable experiences and memories . I met some people who have helped me throughout my undergraduate years and can’t thank them enough for everything they have done for me. They also have given me opportunities to go beyond my boundaries, which I never really had the chance back in high school. San Diego transformed me to be more confident and have a better understanding on friendships and relationships. I’m sure all of you are tired of my rants on my past relationships, but thinking back, I realized how these times made me think about what I didn’t think first, which is loving myself. It’s been almost a year since I started to go on dating hiatus and I have no regrets for the decision I’ve made. This opened so many doors for me and I wish I thought about it earlier. Things happen for a reason, right? These experiences will be something I’ll take with me in the real world.
Holy shit, the real world - the big leagues, the deep-end pool, the whole enchilada. Funemployment, anyone?
And for all you people that bashed on me for majoring in Psychology and urged me to change it, because I will regret it in the future, I think I have enough common knowledge to major in something I’m truly passionate about. The people that have regrets are those that chose to take the easy way out since the requirements are comparably easier than science/engineering majors. My advise for those that have some time left in college or entering college, don’t focus too much on your overall GPA just because the major you’re passionate about may hurt your chances in getting admitted to medical school or whatever future endeavors you’ll soon face. Also, don’t focus too much on graduating on time. People can go into 6 (or even more) years to finish. Education is a gradual process for everybody and an opportunity make connections with something you love and yourself. Failing at one thing doesn’t determine your entire future, but rather an opportunity to strengthen your potential. Yes, I am fully aware that my major (and minor) won’t provide me financial advantage, but my passion is what brings more.
From the wise words of Vitamin C,
As we go on, we remember all the times we had together. And as our lives change from whatever, we will still be friends forever.
