Graduation is near and I am suffering from emotional turmoil.
I am sad but I am happy with the most common reasons— the regrets and memories. I can’t believe that, the 4-year stay in this pontifical university is now near its end. The 200+ days per year that I stayed with my classmates through thick and thin. The unending unnecessary talking everyday, the backstabbing of teachers, the pain of group works that were always vested on one student, the couples who are displaying affection eveytime there are no teachers around, the heartbreak from crushes, and the laughters because of the stupidity of that classmate. I will miss everything that happened in this school. Every part of it, every bit of it.
I am thankful to the group of friends that I had formed every year, who really helped me with surviving all these years. They were always the one who took my side despite my disadvantages and always judged me but explain it afterwards. They were the one who understood my moods and made me realize how they are having difficulties with me. They were the one who always listened to all the things I wanted to say to my family and teachers. The laughters and arguments we had, all those things were the one who helped me to be who I am today.
I am thankful to the teachers who made sense to me and otherwise. To those teachers who never let a meeting pass not giving things to do, and who boringly teach their lesson— knowing that their subject is so boring, and still did not think of other measure to make his students like his subject. To those teachers who listened to our complaints and took it as a suggestion and to those who never cared about the “teacher-student” bond. I may have hated you all since then and bashed you, but now that I am saying goodbye I am still thankful for having you in my life because without you I won’t be getting a glimpse of hardwork in College.
I am thankful to my inspirations. Thank you so much to all the jelly knees and butterflies in my stomach which inspired me to study even the most difficult lessons. And of course for all the distractions that you had created. Thank you for inspiring me to go to school and being one of the reasons to excel in school.
And last but not the least, I am thankful to my family who stayed with me through thick and thin. Their support when I am on the verge of giving up and their reprimanding when I am being a disappointment. There may be times that I am not able to understand how they show love but when I look back, I know that it was love all along.
A chapter in my book of life had ended, and another would open. The lessons that I had learn from this stage in my life will be brought all along until my last breath.
