Today is the first day of class....for everyone but me.
I cannot believe that for the first time in 19-ish years I am not starting school today. What the heck? This is so weird. My boyfriend is going to class, my sister is going to class. But I'm not. I'm going to work. Just like I did all summer. Just like I'll do for the next indefinite number of years.
How did I get from this....
Actually I am even farther away from that smiley college graduation picture because the reality that I wasn't going back to school hadn't sunk in yet. I was still blissfully unaware of how I would feel on this day, the first day of class for everyone else but me.
Oh but don't worry...the welcome sign on campus which now says Class of 2014* has made me acutely aware!
*2014?! are you kidding me?
