Dear Diary,

I have been waiting for this year for so long. I have been counting down until the day when I get to walk across the stage in May since the semester started and I have just been overly excited to make my family proud. When graduation became postponed, I felt really selfish to be upset about something that was honestly out of everyone’s control. I have began to overlook that feeling and focus on the fact that I will still be getting my degree and I’m even granted to still walk later for the sake of keeping the tradition alive. The situation we are in has been really eye opening but I’m really thankful to still be alive and healthy.
