I graduate in 6 months. Life as I know it will never be the same. It’ll never be the same. Could be better, but never what I know now. I am in this group message with a group of girls who all graduated last year. While I sat in class, earlier my phone blew up with the woes of a post grad life.
Sarah said “Starting from the beginning sucks. I just wanna be my ratchet self sometimes around semi-friends without having to build the relationship and understanding first” an then Lucy said “Yeah like I have friends & plans but I have no one to be like “hey come to the grocery store with me.”
I live in a gorgeous apartment downtown with three of my closest friends. I go to a school where love and community flow into the classroom. And yet at times I still feel lonely, but I cannot imagine leaving college, walking into the unknown. With graduation so close, adulthood seems so far away.
