The Daily Man-Up

I started college in 1988 and just finished yesterday. I had many re-starts, went to many different colleges, took many breaks, but the deed is done. The last couple of weeks I would have little moments of awareness that I was finally going to finish and I would get butterflies in my stomach. It’s become almost surreal. I feel very conflicted about it. I’m really proud for not only graduating, but graduating from Washington University in Saint Louis. It’s a kind of tough school and I struggled many times and almost quit many times. I also feel a little foolish celebrating because it took me 31 years to do it. I was going to pass on the whole walking in my robes but my wife convinced me I should. I agreed because I didn’t want to regret it later in life and I couldn’t go back and redo it. But I’m definitely going to feel awkward. (TBH I feel awkward most of the time) I keep hearing a lot of praise from people and thought I should share it here if it helps someone else like me or just someone who is thinking of quitting. Just remember Dory and “just keep swimming” you’ll get there.
