Yesterday marked the end of an era for me. I moved out of my Uni house back home. Yup, I finished University. It was quite a weird feeling. I’ve lived there for the last three years and been blessed to meet and make friends with many incredible people. Not only was it the end of my time at Uni, it was also the end of my time in formal education. Now that’s weird. I’ve never known anything other than going to school or college or uni.
I don’t really know where this post is going to go, I just know I have to write it. The last three years I’ve had some really good times, and made some of the best friends I have ever had. It’s odd to think that these people who I have seen day in day out are no longer going to be around all the time, just to be dropped in on or to just go out for a drink. Not only that but it’s going to feel odd that the 4 guys I shared a house with for the last 2 years are not going to be banging about in the back ground. One of those guys I’ve lived with for the past 3 years and has become a very very good friend. We hope to get a place together, but even that is not certain, and you know what I think thats what makes this whole thing feel so odd. For the vast majority of my 22 years I have known generally what is going to happen next, and now that uni has finished, I don’t.
There are some people who I am really going to miss, I guess they know who they are. They’ve been great friends to me over the last 3 years, and I’m sure they will continue to be good friends. I just want to say thank you for their friendships, thank you for the enjoying the last three years with me, it’s been a lot of fun, gone very quickly, but I wouldn’t change it at all.
I’m going to go now, as well I don’t really know what to say. It’s a weird thing this finishing uni, but I know God will continue to guide me as he has the last 22 years of my life. It’s certainly the end of an era and it was actually quite emotional as I drove past uni for the last time, at least as a student.
