It Was One Hell Of A Road Until The End

The Graduate

I may not be the brightest among many. I may not be the fastest among many. I may not even be the richest or the best looking or even the luckiest for that matter. It’s just that what I am is the most stubborn. For better or for worse, no matter what stands in the way, I will get through to whatever I set my mind on. One petty goal at a time. One day at a time.

Today, one of the more important goals can be crossed off, without fanfare, without ceremony, without anyone to celebrate it with. A quiet moment which marks the beginning of something greater than even myself. After what seems like a lifetime, the dream suddenly seems less insane and more real than it was before. After so long, I can begin the next part of the plan, the next long road until the end.

It’s just too bad I don’t have the time or people to celebrate every milestone of achievements anymore. I would have thrown one hell of a party.

  1. By packing to move to the new house. Not much for celebration here. It’s no fun when you’re on your own anyway with plenty of things to do. 🙁

  2. Congratulations, Ed!

    You know, receiving the certificate in your hands itself is already one heck of a celebration. And this is one of those times when you don’t need too many people to celebrate with 🙂

  3. Exactly why I didn’t go for my graduation ceremony in the first place. There wasn’t any point to it without anyone to celebrate it with. I just let them deliver the cert to my house, it’s the same feeling, just cost a lot less (you know with the robe rental and all that).

  4. Naoko: Thanks. 🙂

    Szehau: Technically it’s Honours in Medical Science. I got my Bachelor’s last year. We count them as separate degrees.
