Graduation: It’s Getting Closer!

It is completely hard to believe that in just two weeks, I, along with hundreds of other graduates, will be walking on the floor of JQH Arena at Missouri State University for graduation. It seems like just yesterday when I was graduating from Billings High School, wide-eyed and scared about what the future held. However as I prepare to graduate from college, I can actually say that I am ready. Yes, there are times when I am wide-eyed and scared, but now I have developed a strong feeling of confidence about what my future holds.

There is so much to get done before graduation. Papers, finals, graduation parties, you name it. All of this has to get done in approximately 17 days. 17 days! Yes, I am a little stressed, but surprisingly not as stressed as I would have thought. Call it “senioritis” or just to the point of having so much going on that I don’t care anymore, I just feel like I am fully ready for the next step. These past four years at Missouri State have been absolutely incredible, and I could not feel more blessed to have gone to school here. Yes there are things I am going to miss about being an undergraduate – the equestrian team, my friends, some of my teachers, etc. However, I know it is time to move on to the next chapter of my life. With this being said, I am so anxious about what the next two years at this university holds.

After graduation, I plan on going back to school at Missouri State to obtain my master’s degree. Once a MSU Bear, always a MSU Bear I guess!  I will be in graduate school for another two years, which I know will be so worth the time and effort. God has placed this opportunity before me, and I know He will see me through. The work is going to be strenuous, the classes are going to be tough and my schedule is going to be crazy; however after thinking about that, I realize that is pretty much what I am used to. Like the famous quote goes “God won’t give you more than you can handle.” This is my saying for the next two years.

I know this post is a little different from the rest. There was no calf pulling, twin talking, horse showing or anything like that. I just wanted to share what my plans are after graduating May 18th where an entire new chapter of My “AG” ventures begins.

  1. I can completely relate to what you are saying! Although sometimes I don’t think I’m quite as ready as you are. I think that has to do with the fact I’m moving to a different state haha!! I wish you the best of luck, and we will have to compare grad school stories next fall! 🙂

    • It is crazy!!!! And I could totally see how moving to a different state would be overwhelming, but from the sounds of Oklahoma State and Stillwater, I know you are going to do awesome!!!!! I wish you the best of luck as well. We will definitely have to meet up sometime next fall and catch up 🙂

      • Absolutely!! We can compare grad school horror stories and new adventures…..basically the “what they don’t tell you about grad school” stuff! Good luck to you as well!! 🙂
