Friday Two Cents: This Time Will Never Come Again



Last week I had my convocation or formal graduation from teacher’s college. It was by far the largest ceremony I have ever been involved in. There appeared to be about 1000 graduates from the bachelors and masters program as well as the doctoral candidates. Looking over the mass of graduates and families and friends, I really had a sense of being overwhelmed. I had to stop myself once in a while and just take in the grand spectacle of the event.

After I meet up with my colleagues from my site and my family for a bunch of pictures. We took picture after picture, with friends and of course with family. I had the extra bonus of having my niece/god-daughter present to witness the entire event and of course take pictures with too.  

Yet after the entire event I had some time to think about what it all meant and what to do next. I am now a teacher and of course looking for a job is the top priority. But I see others in my class going for extra courses and looking to upgrade their qualifications. What do I want to do now that it is all over?

Well I am applying for a teaching position but I am going to take it one day at a time. I think that I am going to enjoy this sense of freedom from all that schoolwork and assignments. I have been taking course after course for over 3 years, summers included, and this entire experience has taught me one important lesson. I have to take time out for the number one person in my life, namely myself.  Yes I will probably take a few courses in a year or two, hopefully I will have a full-time teaching position to help guide my decisions for those upgrades. But for right now, it is time to stop and smell the roses. For this time in our lives will never come again and if you are not careful it will simply pass you by.
