I did it. I have an actual college degree. It took me five years and taking a year and a half off, but I did it. I am now the proud owner of an Associates Degree. I have been accepted into a four year college and am already signed up for classes in the Fall.
For the first time in a very long time I feel like I have accomplished something. Like I have worth. I worked so hard, and almost gave up so many times. I would have depressive episodes and fall behind, then had my old friend anxiety weighing me down as I tried to catch up. But I did it. I’m so happy I could almost cry.
My mother did, and my father smiled and they said they were proud of me. And for the first time in forever I really believed them when they said it.
My scholastic career is not at an end, I still have a ways to go before I get my bachelors degree. But that is for tomorrow. Today, I am going to feel happy, and proud of myself for just a little while. Today I have hope for my future.
