Life Comes in Stages of Four.

Life as I know it is about to change and I am both terrified and excited, I won’t lie. All I have ever known is being a student. My life revolves around being a student, my full time profession is being a student.

We start off young and eager, so happy to learn and thrive until our world of education comes to an end and we must finally choose our path into the world.

All I have ever known is a world in increments of four. My four years of education in Middle School, my four years of education in High School, followed by my four (well four and a half…. shhhh) years of Undergrad. My cycle of life revolves around an evolution of four.

Do I continue on with my education and further my career of being a student or do I make the choice to try, to try and finally become what society says is suppose to feel like you’re truly becoming an adult?


(Time elapses, increments of four and there will be more)

The truth is I am scared but I should be scared, being scared means there is hope. I can see my life is changing but inside I still want those days where I forget how old I am becoming, and how much expectations there are. I want to go back sometimes and be that little girl who loved watching Scooby Doo and riding her Barbie jeep with her best friend in the whole world.

Life is changing for the better and I choose my path. I chose to be a student and now I am choosing to be an adult.
