On Firsts and Lasts

As a senior in college graduating in 20 days, I've spent this year counting a lot of firsts and lasts.

My last first day of school. My last (and first) UMD football game. My last Technica meeting or Contrary all-hands.

There are still a few lasts I have left, thankfully: my last party, my last class, my last dinner with friends. And I’ll have a new first at the end of it all: my first time walking across the stage at my college graduation.

These firsts and lasts have made me realize how precious this time is. I’ve accomplished all I could have dreamt of in college, and yet I still feel like there’s so much I still have to do and so much growing left.
