3 Years On The Clock.


If for a moment I could steal your time, I hope by the end I can say, the pleasure is all mine.

Our concept of time can be very misconstrued. We can be very ungrateful for it, oblivious to how fast it is slipping through our fingers and play ignorant to its importance. It's true what they say, time is a healer but it's also so much more than that. Time is that faint but bittersweet memory you cling to for comfort on those days where things seem hard. Time is our friend, it gives us seconds, minutes, hours, days even to process our emotions and heal, it lets us look back on the good in our lives and as we countdown down it gives us bubbles of excitement in our bellies.

I'm in my last year at university and part of me is excited and the other half of me is upset. When people ask me how I feel about graduating I'm so quick to tell them that I'm excited to finish, graduate and leave but late at night, when I think about all the great memories it's given me, I wish I could take my answer back. Sure university has tested my mental health, it has stressed me out and doubt myself on various occasions but this isn't the first time life has done this to me.

I wish I could find the words to express the of friends I've made and reconnected with thanks to university, I never loved people so much other than my family and my small group of friends from university. There have been so many nights filled with laughter, dancing and good food and it's only hitting me now that it is all coming to an end, we are going to be going our separate ways as adulthood and full time jobs await us.

University has really given me the opportunity to grow. I knew that it would end up making me more independent as I didn't have my parents and sister to rely on in my times of need but I didn't realise how much it would do for me mentally. Everyday I'm slowly beginning to feel like a better and more confident version of myself. I'm learning to understand what makes me tick, what I love and hold important in life.

Do not wish it away, you cannot rush it, you can not erase it but you can embrace it. Plant your feet in her earthy flesh and let her help you to grow and blossom into she knows you are destined to be. Embrace each moment she gives you whether it is little or small, significant or not be grateful because you never know when she may be ripped away from you. Time isn't forever. You never know when she will pack her bags and take you with her.  

There is so much I still hope to do before leaving like taking a group trip to the beach and wasting the little money we have left in the arcades. I'm determined to really value the time I have left, every second of it. Its the little things like your best friend making you pancakes for breakfast as you laugh over your boy troubles and walking home from lectures together as the sun begins to set and complaining about the cold aching your bones, those are the parts of my day I'm really going to miss.

When people say that university was one of the best moments of their life, I finally get it, it finally makes sense to me. I've loved everything that has come with it because it has helped me become stronger, to trust in myself more and to look back and be proud  of everything I've overcome. Time has given me so much to be thankful for over these 3 years and it also has given so much to look forward to as the clock unwinds.

So, I urge all of you in education still to enjoy and revel in every single moment you have before you know it, it's over and you can't get it back, just the distant memories and warmth it surrounds you with.

What is one thing that university has made you grateful for?

until the next post.
with love, yossy.
