feeling odd.

i'm sitting here, publishing this post from this crazy computer lab that i've basically lived in for the past 2 years. i just finished my last assignment of my college career. my last class ever ended this morning at 11. cougar campus. smelly trees. freaking weird kids. the bookstore. my classes. my literature. my english professor jay fox that i've grown to love like my grandparent. this is it. i'm graduating next week, and i'm all of a sudden feeling odd about it. i realize that i really and truly enjoyed my time here at BYU. it's so weird that it's coming to an end, and there's really not much i can do about it. i think i'm sad. don't get me wrong--i've long awaited this moment. i'm excited to graduate and to move on, however i wouldn't be surprised if i fall into a slight depression after next week. i'll admit it BYU. as much as you bug me, i do love you. thank you for an incredible education. i promise i'll never stop learning.

As loserish as this sounds, I got choked up reading this post. I graduated two years ago now and I MISS IT SO MUCH! I seriously think some of our best memories will always be from that place. From kissing boys at Heleman Halls, meeting our husbands freshmen year to stupid Provo parties to yes, the ridiculously weird kids. Thanks for the reflection.

Trevor wants me to add, "The ridiculously weird kids in SKINNY JEANS from CALIFORNIA"

I have nothing to do with that statement.

Congratulations pretty lady. I miss school ALL the time and always think about going back for another degree. And then I have to evaluate whether I really want to go back to school or if I am just bored! Only time will tell!

Congrats on graduating Jenna. That is HUGE! I totally sympathize with your mixed feelings. It is great to finish school, but I definitely miss BYU.
