Yup, you read it right people. I am officially saying good bye to Spring quarter, and I’m saying a BIG HELLO to Summer!!! 🙂 Just turned in my last lab notebook and lab report, which officially marks the end of my Spring classes. Woohoooo!!
Spring quarter as for many of us – or at least for me – has been the hardest quarter of the year 😦 Maybe it’s because it’s the end of school year, maybe it’s because there is only a 1 week break from Winter to Spring, or maybe it’s just the fact that I am tired already by the time Spring comes around. But nevertheless, Spring is over and I can proudly say that I finished it strongly in all my classes and my midterms and my finals – all those a scary battle!!
For a lot of us the end of Spring marks an end but I also say that it marks a new beginning for some of us. For those of us that are staying at school, it marks the end of one school year and beginning of the fun of Summer. But for the others, it marks a new chapter, a new beginning in their life where they leave UCLA or any school that they’ve been at for the last couple years and prepare to dive in to the real world out there. I have to say I’m such a cry baby. I will be crying for my friends that are graduating: I’m crying because I’m sad that they’re no longer at UCLA but I’m also happy and proud of them for what they’v been through and have done.
I was dropping my notebook a couple hours ago at school, and the school was filled with excitement, balloons, flowers, smiling students, and parents. You could see the proud looks in each of parents’ faces and the happiness and joy in each students’ face!!
Some of my friends from the College Letter and Science are graduating tonight, and some of my friends from the School of Engineering are graduating tomorrow. For all of you graduates, CONGRATULATIONS and I wish you all the very best from my heart!! And I’m proud to be able to call and meet you all as a friends!! 🙂
And for the rest of the Bruins, HAPPY SUMMER!! 🙂
