So I’ve come to the conclusion that my life is going to be complete chaos until I graduate from college. You see, I am 23 years old and I have been constantly in school ever since I started pre-school. I haven’t had one break (not counting summer & Christmas vacations of course). The sad part is, I’ve been in college since I graduated high school in 2007, and I have no degree to show for it! But I am not going to let that discourage me. So I may have changed my major a few too many times, and I may have switched universities twice, but I am finally where I belong. I’m studying photography in hopes to make a living out of my dream. So I am perfectly okay with the fact that I am going to have to double up on classes, and take classes throughout my summer breaks in order to graduate by my goal of December 2014. That’s right folks, I will have been in college for about 7 years until I gain a Bachelor’s Degree in Photography. Sounds a bit ridiculous, but as each semester passes, the light at the end of the tunnel gets brighter and brighter.
What I’m trying to say here is, to all you who ever feel like you’re struggling, or feel like giving up because you feel like you’re getting nowhere fast…. Don’t. I promise you, you will see the end. I also promise you there will be some God awful days, but there will also be some really good days. There will be days where things seem perfectly clear. Remember those days, jot down your thoughts and feelings and whenever you have a bad day… read about the good.
I’m finally seeing the end. Even though I still have 2 years left… It feels so much closer than it ever has before and that’s because it is. On this very day, I’m as close as I ever been to graduating. And on this very day for you, you’re as close as you ever been to whatever you’ve been working so hard for. So keep going my friend, the light is near!
Stay inspired, motivated, creative, and happy.
