Last night was the CCS kegger. I spent 5 years in college total, but 4 here at CCS, and I feel as if I still missed out. Why is that? Well, actually I know why.
I just saw all the people I shared classes with for the past 4 years for most likely the last time last night. Sure, it was fun, and it was great and all, but it really didn't feel like I felt in. I have seen these people almost every day (or every other day) for so long, yet I never got to know the majority of them, and, lets face it, our senior class is pretty small. I stuck to the same 8 people I hung out with through the entire 4 years, and I never really put myself out there to get to know everyone else. I feel that, as a commuting student, I missed out on really having a "CCS family."
I have yet another year to go. As unfortunate as it is that I am stuck in college for another whole year and not graduate with my fellow seniors due to my double major, I am going to take this as a blessing and really get to know everyone I can at CCS next time around. I missed out on getting to know a lot of great people, and what could have been good friendships will basically always feel like acquaintances.
SO, I am just going to say CONGRATULATIONS to all of those graduating next week. Sorry I never got to know any of you, as I most definitely regret it. But I really appreciate all of you, and am glad to have spent the past 4 years going through CCS with you all. It really was a blast.
