The Emotional Rollercoaster Known As The Last Semester Of College

As I finish packing my car to move back to school for my last semester at college, a wave of emotions rush over me. While I am extremely excited to be heading back to school and for all the exciting things the new semester will bring, the fear of what I will be doing post graduation is always in the back of my mind. The most comforting aspect of it all is knowing I'm not the only one riding this emotional rollercoaster.

Like when you realize adult life is coming up real quick
