For many graduating students like myself, we’re really almost there. We were almost there before our classes moved online, and we’re much closer to the end than we were ever before.
For some, we feel the internal dread of wanting to get what we’ve started over with. Perhaps we’ve exhausted ourselves by doing a project that we weren’t doing for ourselves. We let the project control us and drag us through the sands with critique and feedback leading the way ahead.
For others, we see an upcoming space of relief, where we can finally say the word, voilà.
Then there’s the last group, one that sees restlessness of what comes after? We’ve been letting schoolwork be the distraction we’ve needed to stay comfortable but once it’s gone, it’s gone. What comes next?
Thankfully if you’re in the last group, you’ve got time. There will be time opened up, time to connect, and time to be able to plan ahead.
Here’s to the last stretch!
