I think it is natural that I’m suffering from a little bit of anxiety right now. I’m going through a huge transition phase in my life. This is exciting, but really scary. I will be graduating from college in just over a month. I remember when I first walked through the doors of my freshman dorm, Susan B. Anthony Hall.
I was the most excited I had ever been about anything. The fit felt perfect, and I thrived. I
thought hoped it would never end. My undergraduate experience was phenomenal, except for a few hiccups. I loved most of the classes I took, but naturally my favorites were all of the biology classes. After completing more than half of my sophomore year and debating between a degree in Biochemistry or Molecular Genetics, I decided genetics was a better option for me.
Now, I am about to graduate. I have my first job interview on Thursday for a lab in the UR Medical Center. This is causing me a great deal of anxiety. I keep asking myself “What if I don’t get the job? What if I do get the job?!” At the same time, I’m very excited for the changes that are about to happen. I am going to graduate with a Bachelor’s degree, the first in my immediate family to do so. It’s just a little overwhelming when you are trying to find a job, study for the GRE, and coordinate everything that needs to be done before my graduation, in addition to regular weekly class stuff. But, as with everything else in my life, I know that I will get everything done on time and I will be okay.
