As many of you probably already know, and have been hearing about for months on end, I finished the last of my courses today. Of course, the world has a lovely way of flipping me the bird on really important days, and laughing at me by coming up with the worst possible punishments, making me stress out more than I probably should, and it seems like everything goes wrong, but in the end, things somehow turn out, for the most part, OK. Today did. Thankfully. I don't know my grades yet, but I've finished everything. So, for the future, these are the things I know that I'll be using....
I know I (now) have a college education, but that doesn't mean I know everything
I know that I can finish things
I know that I have the capability to do what I want, if I put my mind to it
I know that, in three months, I might have my license
I know that all things take time
I know that I've got a long road ahead of me
I know that life won't be easy just because I have a piece of paper
I know that I still will have to work for things, they won't be handed to me
I know I still have responsibilities, even in the down time when I don't have a job or license
I know that I'll eventually have a job, but it may not be the exact one I want
I know that not all things in life are easily obtained (i.e. degrees)
I know that I will have to continue to learn and gain insight (well, that and I would have to in order to keep a license if I get one, anyway)
I know that I love social work
I know I kind of wrote it last minute, but I had a lot to do in prep for finals and writing a paper, so I hope that kind of waives my writing in advance duties. I did write other stuff though...so maybe I should have included this? No, I think this is better that I did it after instead of before. I like that I'm doing it now. After the fact.
Thanks for tuning in for "Things I know- Transition Edition"
Next week, I will probably be dying from boredom, anhedonia, and a week of résume writing, checking, application writing, job hunting, etc. I may be a bit cynical. =/
