Let's Talk: Graduation

Lipscomb University Graduate

B.A. in Journalism & New Media

I cannot believe I am officially done with college. It doesn't even seem real yet, it's honestly crazy to think about. I graduated on December 19, 2020, and what a magical day it was (as best as it could be, considering the circumstances) My family hosted a graduation drive-by for me to celebrate the BIG day, and I had such an amazing time. My school hosted virtual graduation for all December graduates. So when I heard my name and actually saw it on the screen, that moment was so surreal to me.

College was not in any way, shape, or form easy, or even super fun at all times. It's hard. Very hard, in my opinion. No one really talks about all the challenges or changes you will face during this period of time in your life. Often when people discuss college, you may hear, "oh, those will be the best years of your life." or "College is so much fun, it get's away from home." All of these things are true, but they're very surface level of what people will actually experience during their time at school. So, being where I'm at now, finally finished, it feels AMAZING! I feel like I actually accomplished something BIG. All my hard work finally paid off and I know I have a bright future ahead of me. I'm so grateful for my college experience, the people I met, and everything I got to be apart of, I wouldn't change it for anything. So, congratulations to all the 2020 graduates. This was such a hard year for many, but to finish school during a pandemic, while being at home, is an incredible feeling.

Over the next week, I will write a series of blog posts about my full college journey. Where I started, where I finished, and things I learned during the process. Also, important details that aren’t told to most students before embarking upon their college journey. So make sure to come back and check that out! Until then, keep up with me on Instagram to see what I'm up to & updates about future posts.

Until next time,
