Graduation makes me feel both happy and sad. After all the hardships, the troubles, the failures, I'm finally be getting out of the university but that includes not being able to see the people whom I treated as family. It's quite sad to know that you're on your own now but at the same time it feels happy and fulfilling to earn the fruits of your hardwork.
Even semester breaks make me feel sad for the same reason. Though I know I'll get to see these people, there's this feeling of sadness that lingers. I don't know why I get so easily attached with people that not having them around even just for a day or two makes me miss them so much. This also goes with moving from one work to another.
I'm not quite sure which emotion overpowers which in these situations. I also must admit that it is more often that I am neither happy nor sad, than having to feel both.
