What's Next?

As graduation approaches, I'm finding myself reflecting on my life a lot more. And this past week something dawned on me...

My whole life has revolved around the University of Georgia and that will soon be something of my past. My whole childhood I was raised to believe the end-all-be-all of colleges was UGA. Then as I got old enough to realize what that meant, we got football season tickets. Then I fell in love with this place. And then the only goal was getting into school there. Then that happened. And then I spent four years here. And now it's all ending.

And I'm left wondering what's next.

Yes, I know that there is life after college. I'm not delusional. But UGA has been the center of my life for as long as I can remember. And I'm starting to feel like I'm lost in space... in this weird limbo between the dream life I had been leading and the uncertain future.

I'm not a fan of uncertainty either. Although, I'm not sure anyone really is. I've just pretty much always had a plan. And I've reached the last stage of the definite life plan: Graduate from UGA.

I realize that everyone essentially goes through something like this. But for most people, it hasn't been their entire life goal to attend a certain school. So here I sit. Wondering where I go from here: the top. As far as my life goals are concerned, I've reached my peak. Which terrifies me.

So while I figure all of that out, I'll be here. (Looking like that.) Just trying to play it cool and float through life. Per usual. So stick with me here as I try my best not to panic about this whole process of the future.
