I have finished undergrad at University! So on one hand I am very proud and very happy that I have set another goal and seen it through despite the challenges. Anyone who has worked full-time while doing college level courses after work and on weekends should understand where I am coming from.
On the flip side though I must say that because I crammed so much and didn’t really get the chance to “enjoy” my studies, a lot of what I did is a blur! Attending university means different things for different people but without being a conspiracy theorist it does seem like a production line popping out indebted but “educated” individuals.
The Education Production line
Completing my undergrad studies was an important step towards other personal goals I have but from actually being part of the production line I couldn’t help but notice a great number of zombified people just going through the motion trying to eat brai… um I mean just floating from semester to semester.
Thanking all those who helped
Again back to the positive side though I am really proud of my achievement and I am very grateful to everyone who helped surmount this challenge. My close friends for enduring my breakdowns, my classmates who had to either drag me along or race to keep up and my family especially my mother for being supportive and offering words of encouragement.
