The American collegiate system in one gif set

it hurts

the saddest part is that this isn’t even really a joke

The actual saddest part is that the higher ups are probably well aware of this by now yet don’t seem to care enough to try and change it.

13 Days

In thirteen days, I’ll be a college graduate. Like, a real, proper college graduate.

That’s too much for me to wrap my brain around.

I can’t quite grasp that this week contains my last classes ever. That I’ll never have to do any more homework. That these papers I’m writing could be the last I ever write.

It just doesn’t seem possible. I can’t believe that the time has goneso fast.I once felt like I’d never be finished, and now, here I am - standing on the edge of the rest of my life.

It’s terrifying… realizing that “real life” is about to begin. I’m not sure I’m ready, but I can’t do anything to stop this all from happening. I’m trying to be excited, and I feel as if my emotions concerning graduation swing back and forth between thrilled and terrified. My brain’s just trying to process it all. It’s a lot to take in. 

I just wonder what state my brain will be in once the next 13 days are over…
