Here is an open letter to those who have their graduation delayed for certain inevitable circumstances.
OPEN LETTER – Graduation seems like an unreachable star upon entering an educational institution – it requires a whole lot of stress, experiences, and faith.
Though every student wants to finish his or her studies on time, there are certain inevitable circumstances that might delay graduation. It might be because of financial, family, health, or other personal problems.
Something common that people fail to see is the fact that each has his or her own time zone. Delayed graduation is still graduation – a proof of success and surviving all the odds that the road to learning have offered. Here is an open letter to those not graduating on time as posted in Candy Mag.
From the very first day we could hold a pencil, one idea has been repeatedly hammered into our heads: go to school, get good grades, go to university, land a job, and live the rest of your life Happily Ever After—as if doing so was the only way to win at life.
Nonetheless we followed. Begrudgingly, we admit, it was the most secure path to a brighter future as compared to the uncertainty of the path less trodden. But somewhere somehow, something in your plan regarding this went completely wrong.
An infinite amount of situations could have gone down to push you into the quandary you’re in.
Maybe you decided to change your major, maybe you ran into some financial trouble, maybe you switched schools, maybe you decided to take some time off to travel the world.
Simply put, life just threw something your way that you were completely unprepared for—and punched you in the face.
Whatever the reason may be, only one thing was for sure—and you heard the words that was basically equal to taking a step back from the fast-paced speed of life like a sick, twisted Monopoly board game.
