second adult milestone, hip hip

Dear Ginny,

The first adult milestone is obviously becoming an adult. That’s done (I turned 18 an unspecified number of years ago).

Second is graduating high school! I know most people finish high school before they become adults but I did not, because of the UC (we’ve discussed this before, keep up).

I feel strange. My last exam was yesterday at which point I am officially released lol. So I’ve had some time to deal with it but also, not really, it’s only been a day. Yesterday, after my exam, I was sitting in my room, listening to music and relaxing. I didn’t really have anything to do. But then I went to check my emails, and I had an email from myself!

I haven’t discussed this on the blog before, but I use this website called FutureMe.org. It’s really simple to use (you guys should definitely use it) and the idea is that you can send an email to yourself in the future. Even 50 years in the future.

So I had this email, and the first line was “DUUUUUUUUUUUUUDE! YOU’RE DONE!” and I started crying! And at that moment, Simple Song by The Shins started playing and this song always reminds me of the season 8 finale episode of HIMYM, when everybody is reaching a different stage of their lives. And I BAWLED. LIKE A BABY.

I just can’t quite believe I’m in the position, that I’m actually done. I don’t know what to do. And all this freedom is so exciting, all this potential. But it’s also daunting, isn’t it?

I hope you have more purpose in life than I do lol.

Lots of love,

Carter
