I guess you could say this post is a follow-up to “What They Don’t Tell You in College.” After I wrote that post, I asked myself the question I ask myself every day: “What am I thankful for?”
Thinking about my earlier post, I realized I knew what I am thankful for today. I am thankful to no longer be in college. I know that sounds weird coming from a person who will be starting graduate school in September (somewhere), but I am glad I am no longer an undergraduate. Don’t get me wrong, I loved college. I despised high school, but college was amazing. Now that three years have past however, I look back and am thankful to be done. I started college in my late teens and graduated in my early twenties. That’s a wonky time for a person. You’re technically considered an adult, but you still feel like a teenager. Oh, and while you’re trying to figure out which direction your life is headed, you have to write a paper for an English class. And another paper for another English class. And help put together a PowerPoint presentation for an Art History class.
