College Student Acceptance Speech

College Student Acceptance Speech

With award show season in full swing, I have watched a lot of acceptance speeches from successful people basking in all of their successful glory. All of these speeches pretty much sound the same with the winners giving credit where credit is due by thanking their friends, family, and of course fans. Some of these speeches are short and sweet while others are dreadfully long and boring. However, watching all of these award shows made me think about what I would say if I had to give an acceptance speech. So, I thought up my own personal "college student acceptance speech" to thank all of the people and things that have gotten me to where I am today and have kept me alive and well so far. Because honestly, college students deserve an award just for getting out of bed each morning.

Here it goes: 

First of all, I would just like to say it is a huge honor to be standing here today. Since coming to college, there have been many times when I thought I wouldn't make it but the fact that I am still here speaks measures for my personal health and sanity. There are so many people I would like to thank.

I would like to thank the board of admissions and the university for even allowing me to be here. Thank you for letting me in, taking my money, and providing me with countless stressful opportunities to conquer. I obviously could not do it without you. 

I would also like to thank my parents for their faith in me and for the endless support they have given me. It is because of you that I strive to better myself in all areas of my life. Thank you for sticking by me during my awkward stage (like you had a choice) so that you could watch me blossom into the person I am now.

Another huge thank you goes out to all of my best friends for helping me thrive and survive in college. Thank you for picking me up when I'm down, encouraging me to do my best, and for making me laugh 24/7. All of this would mean nothing without you.

I would like to end by thanking the weather for providing me with a couple of surprise snow days, my planner for keeping me sane, and my leggings and oversized t-shirt for giving me endless comfort. These past few months just would not be possible without all you have done for me.  

One last time, thank you to everyone who has led me to this moment. I think I speak for all college students when I say we definitely deserve this.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media. I hope the author of this was kidding or using digital sarcasm, but I am still repulsed and shocked by the lack of appreciation throughout this article. I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
