Graduating in less than a week is both an exhilarating and terrifying feeling. Not only does it mean that I’m done with school (for now), but it also means that I’m officially entering the real world, and with that comes major change. The amount of constant that I choose to keep in my life is purely up to me but the changes- those are debatable. As a fresh college graduate, that’s what life is going to entail: rolling with the punches and keep on swinging.

From the Portland Senior Experience Blog:
As it gets closer to graduation, many members of my family have been forwarding other commencement speeches from universities that have already released their Class of 2012 into the world.
Out of the many shared, two authors’ speeches deeply touched my heart and resonated with me: the late Marina Keegan, and Texas A&M alumnus Neal Boortz. Keegan’s speech was written for a special commencement edition of the Yale Daily News and was tragically killed in a car accident the weekend after graduation; and Boortz is a radio talk show host that had a few words he needed to say. Regardless of their situations, their words are exceptionally genuine and still ring quite true.
