Late Nights , Early Mornings, && Lots of Coffee

The late nights, early mornings, and gallons of coffee finally paid off. On May 16. 2015 I graduated from the University of North Texas with my B.A in Communication Studies and a minor in Political Science. I never thought I would see this day. I was excited and terrified at the same time. Not long after walking the stage the famous open ended questions came. “What are you going to do with your life?” If you’ve graduate college and have had that question ask you know its the most annoying question in the world.

Honestly I have no freaking idea. I have no idea what I wanted to do career wise, where I want to live, but I know who I want to be; because it is the most important part to life. I know I don’t want to work a desk job busting 9-5 for 5 days a week and working 40 long hours. I don’t want to come home and complain every day about how much I hate my job.

Someone once told me that if you do something you love you will never think of it as work. As of right now I know that I want to travel the world. I am a wanderlust. Wanderlust (n.) A strong desire or urge to wander or travel and explore the world. So with that being said I am planning on moving across the world. I won’t say where I am planning on going just yet. These are my plans but they can’t come true if God doesn’t want them to. So I am going to leave it all up to him.

He has a plan in stored for me and I just have to wait and see where he wants me to go. May be he wants me to go to grad school and get my Masters. May be he wants me to move across the country and work for a non profit organization.

Honestly what ever he wants I will be happy with. As I am waiting around for his answers I have applied to grad school. I will hear back from them in 3 weeks. So keep the prayers going up so the blessing may come down. The funny thing is they never tell you how life is going to be after you graduate. The limbo that you are in for those first couple of months before the fall starts in August. Those months where you have to figure everything out.

I’m not entirely sure what my future holds , but I do know that it will be brighter because God has a plan for me.

  1. First of all, congratulations on graduating! Thats huge! As a new college grad myself, I can sooo relate to getting asked “What are you going to do now?” and having absolutely no idea haha but I love how you are just trusting Him. God most definitely has wonderful plans, opportunities and an amazing future for you. Stay patience, keep trusting and enjoy post grad life!
