I can't believe I'm almost done with college. The past year and a half has flew by like I couldn't imagine. First Grandpa gave me his old car, I got a job, then my GED. Once I started college things really started to speed up. Now I find myself reaching the end of the tunnel with mixed emotions. I will be glad to be done with all the bookwork and long hours of studying which only keep me from spending more time with my family or reading books I want to read. Yet at the same time, it's kind of cool being a college student! : ) I feel very grown-up to say the least.
There is also the excitment of getting a real job. I suppose since I never intended on staying at the restaurant I am at right now for a long time, I never considered it a real job. Plus, the job I have right now doesn't have benefits. But my next job will hopefully be one that I can stay at for a while. It will be a job that I can be proud of.
But before I know it this transaction from college to the medical feild will be over. Truely, our life is "even a vapor that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away." So I am going to try to enjoy my last few weeks of college before they are gone. (But I will still celebrate with gladness when it is all over! : )
