A year ago yesterday I tweeted to a friend that this week was going to make or break me, and I was really scared it was going to break me.
Fast forward a year, and there’s still rain in the forecast (though not as much as last year) and I took on even more this week with a graduate luncheon the day before graduation. I’m far less panicked.
Today is not going to be perfect, but it’s going to be good. I know that much. I no longer expect my work events to be “perfect.” Gosh I would love perfection, but I have to be realistic, right?
I’m going to miss so many of today’s graduates. These students have become friends of mine this year. Really over the past 18 months. They were over halfway through with their college career when I started working at the school, but I felt like I really came into my own this year. We bonded. And so many of them are going off to do great things.
I’m so very happy for the students. I’m sad for me, but excited to meet the new students and see what is in store this next year.
