This past Friday I graduated from college! I am so happy to be done with school and move on to the next chapter of my life. My college experience was the exact opposite of how I imagined it would be (no one ever thinks it will take them 5 years and that they will transfer to a school an hour away from where they live...) but I do not regret anything! I am proud of the choices I made and am really glad I listened to my heart and transferred to a smaller school, even if everyone told me not to! Obviously it worked out for me because I was offered and accepted a teaching position before I even graduated : ) I think the thing I learned the most in college is that you have to do what is right for you, even if everyone else is doing something different! I am finally at a place in my life where I am comfortable being ME and I don't let other's opinions of me dictate my life. It's a real good feeling considering I had the lowest self-confidence in the entire world when I entered college.
