It's been a while since my last post on StudyLeaks.
My last post was about getting the final pieces together and me stressing on my thesis/dissertation (scriptie), whatever you want to call it. Well..... good news! The tittle already said it: I am officially graduated!
Today (20-09-2012) was the graduation ceremony, group pictures were taken and I received my bachelor diploma.
I honestly do miss my classmates (& friends) and being a student. But at the same time I am happy and relieved that I closed this long during chapter. Seeing the proudness on your parents face (or in this case my dad and uncle were there) is undescribable. I thought I would not make it in 4 years, due to a subject IMPORT that I probs done over a hundred times and still couldn't pass. I even passed my thesis by then, and only this subject kept me away from my graduation. But I studied and studied hard. I guess if you really put yourself 100% in what YOU really WANT, YOU CAN DO IT! And it's true, this slogan is so true (realizing now...). Nothing beats a person's motivation or determination in what they WANT to achieve, or what their GOAL is. There is no such thing as "I (simply) can't do it" or "I suck at it", which I tend to do in my students years a lot. I guess I did not believe in myself back then as I believe in myself now. Of course you can do it, you just got to assemble all your courage and confidence and just give a 200% of yourself. Prioritize and never accept failure in the beginning. Or else it will be like a false start in a race.
A little motivation (even though this schoolyear started 2 weeks ago) for all of you students already complaining and regretting school/uni =P
You are "soon-going-to-be-graduates", whether you're a freshman, second, third or in your final year,
Time flies, seriously.. it does men! So cherish every moment being a student rigth now, because you will miss it. Even though studying might be tough sometimes, remember that you are doing ALL that for THESE below: (^_^)
The famous Graduation Cap
Sitting there with other graduates, and realizing you have done it yourself. All those hurdles in your way, you have jumped over then nevertheless how high they were. Impossible started to sound like a fairy tale and as the years fly by, you grow a bit wiser and confident on the inside. Perhaps you even might start believe you can be Batman or Superman. You believe that you can fly and crawl on walls... Okay okay, I'm going off topic now. But you get the point right, what I am trying to tell you. Do you feel motivated now?
And yes, it's okay to party rock occasionally as a student. In fact, I do believe it's part of the student's life. HOWEVER! Once you are getting behind on homework, or are a horrible teamplayer, or getting low grades resulting in failing, etcetera.. you know that it is up to you to make a (not so hard) decision on whether you want want those 2 things above in the pictures or party rock hard the rest of your life.
Thanks for reading my post. I will be posting more news and information on how things are for me now I am graduated or/and what to expect after being graduated. I hope my posts can help all of you (in some way).
