Where Does The Time Go?

It feels like just yesterday I was a senior in high school contemplating the most important decision of my life. Today, I am a month and a half away from being a senior in college. Where does the time go?

I walk past student tour groups and smile, thinking, ‘wow I can’t believe that used to be me.’

I don’t know if I am excited, or terrified, or both about what will happen a year and a half from now.

When I think back upon my time in college, I came in thinking I had my whole life planned out, ask my roommate I have a journal for everything with every possible life route written down. When I reflect back upon these journals I could not even imagine going down the routes I created for myself when I was 18-years-old. Now, I have no idea what I want to do with my life, where I want to live, I used to have this all nailed down.

But we change, we grow, it is okay that I don’t know anymore. It’s okay that I don’t have a five year plan anymore. And now I am terrified, I have never not known what my next move is. If there is one thing I have learned throughout my time in college it’s that you can’t have everything planned out. Nothing ever goes the way you want, every single day is vastly different than the one before it.

Whoever said high school was the best days of their lives, never went to college. Although some days are hard, and the sun doesn’t shine much, I wouldn’t change this experience for the world.
