The past month has been full of small steps towards my future. It amazes me how far I have come since graduation. I recently found this image from graduation that really sums it all up. I’ve been taking so many small steps in the past year that have launched me into my career and my adult life. Neil Armstrong said it perfectly when he landed on the moon: “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”
After 17 years of homework, tests and paper writing…my educational career has come to an end. I capped it off with a final campaign’s presentation on Friday in which my class competed with another class for a real client. We pitched her our campaign and she loved it! In fact, she chose our group as the winners. It was a very neat experience! As hard and as time consuming as this class has been over the last semester, I have really enjoyed working with my classmates. It was well worth the pay off!
Friday is graduation day. I’ve waited 5 long years for this day. My announcements have been sent, my cap is decorated and my gown is ready to be worn. My parents will be here Thursday and other family members will be here on Friday including my brother. Friday also happens to be his birthday. :)
I cannot wait to close this chapter of my life. I have achieved a lot in the last 5 years. It hasn’t always been easy but it’s been worth it! I am eager to see what the future brings me. I have a lot to look forward to.
In the mean time, I plan on taking the summer to enjoy myself and not stress out too badly about finding a job. I have my part time job and photography on the side. Traveling opportunities have come up for the summer and I plan on seeing some close friends out of state. It’s going to be a great summer!
After 5 years…I’ve gone to 3 different schools: Brevard Community College, Daytona State College, University of North Florida and I’ve earned 3 degrees: Associate’s of Arts, Associate’s of Science in Photographic Technology, Bachelor’s of Science in Communication & Advertising.
So here is to the next chapter of my life and the years to come! May I never forget where I came from and how I got here today!
