Do you ever realize how badly you’re going to miss a moment while you’re living it? Like wow these are the good days. I am here, I am happy, and I feel alive. That’s been the reoccurring thought for the last two weeks leading up to graduation weekend. I graduated three days ago, now I’m already back home settling back into a different routine, but, when I scroll through my news feed it feels like I’m still in Boston and nothing has changed. The last two weeks were unfairly amazing. It’s hard to look back without rose tinted glasses. As cliche as it sounds, I can’t believe it’s over. My friends and I have been joking about how we’re going to be the parents who always tell stories about their college days and how they were the best days of our lives. I’m so beyond thankful for the friends I’ve made, friends for a lifetime, but, I think my biggest takeaway is learning not to be fearful when my goals start shifting and the person in the mirror is evolving. As our commencement speaker, Nina Tessler, former CBS Entertainment Chair, said ,“Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it without knowing what’s going to happen next.” My goals are still changing and they will continue to change taking me to new places and away from familiarity, but in this moment I am thankful for the last few years and missing BU.
