That’s exactly how many days there are until I graduate college and I am an official certified PSW. I joke and say that June 18th is the day I become a certified butt wiper… but being a PSW is so much more than that and I can tell that I made the right choice going to St Clair College Thames Campus… I made the right choice becoming a PSW. I made the right choice by working my butt off to reach my goals.
I never thought that I would complete college. I wasn’t capable of doing that. I remembered how I was in high school when it came to homework and projects and assignments. I would bullshit my way through them or just wouldn’t complete them at all. I am not going to lie, I was terrified of not being able to actually pull my shit together to complete my homework in college. What if I lost interest in the course? I never studied for tests in high school. I never studied for exams. I didn’t care in high school. But, I think when it actually comes to paying for your own education that’s just the motivation that you need to stick you nose in books and work hard and succeed.
But guess what… I did it. I did study. I did do the assignments. I did do the projects. I did hand stuff in not only on time, but most of the time early too. I did take part in class discussion. I did take notes. I didn’t slack off.
Honestly, I think of the biggest things that helped me work SO hard to complete my course was making my dad proud. Don’t get me wrong, I wanted to make my mom proud too, but she has always told me when she was proud. Dad telling me he’s proud…. it still surprises me and he’s been saying it since September.
I am freaking out.
