I’ve been thinking a lot about graduation lately. Perhaps that’s because I now have less than a month until the big day. My final undergrad to-do list is quickly dwindling, and every project, quiz, paper, or test that I’m finishing is becoming one of my last of my undergrad career.
My planner is definitely filling up with important dates. Next week, I’ll be seeing my last required play for my Advanced Acting class, and then it’ll be time for the Fontbonne Honors Convocation, the Phi Kappa Phi Induction Ceremony, and, one of my favorite evenings of the year, Zoo Friends’ Day at the Saint Louis Zoo. (Yep, I’ve been a proud member of the Zoo since before I could even talk!)
I finally feel like everything is starting to fall into place and like all of the hard work and tears I put into my biology degree are paying off. Who really knows where I’ll be in a year, two years, or ten years from now? I’m beginning to realize that, as long as I truly dedicate myself to learning more and yearning to perfect my lab techniques, I’ll be alright in the end.
