ive surpassed like.. my own shame and guilt when it comes to school. initially, seeing all my high school classmates graduating with their bachelors made me feel immensely inadequate, thoughts of “that should be me. that could have been me” irritated and picked at me. but with some careful thought, i reevaluated my situation and theirs and now im just. truly genuinely happy for them. like its such an accomplishment and i can imagine how good it must feel to do the damn thing. even better, i know i can do it too. even if its not at the same time as everyone else. i 100% know i am capable now. honestly seeing my old classmates graduating has been inspirational to me. im so thankful for that because im not in school right now. i took a semester off (for the first time since graduating from high school) in order to gain some new perspective. in hopes of being re-inspired. i miss learning. and im just really happy for everyone who is graduating with any type of degree, at whatever age they are.
