I finished my last final tonight! That means Saturday, I’ll be walking up to the stage and receiving my diploma and hearing Sir Edward Elgar – Pomp and Circumstance March No.1 (YouTube link – 6:11) in my head the whole time, something I learned to play on my viola senior year for the statewide high school symphony, held at the University of the Pacific (UOP). I had no idea it was so intense before that point, musch like college itself. If I’d known that it would take me through this many twists and turns to get there now, I wonder if I would have ever made it, looking back from what feels like the top of a mountain, now.
Listen to it. It’s great.
I can’t believe I’m done! For now… 😀
