This Is It

I stared at my reflection in the floor-length mirror. 
   Does the dress swirl around my knees just right? 
   Are the straps in the right place? 
   Did I add too much eye shadow? 
   Maybe I should've gotten taller heels. 
   Is my side-bun too messy? 

This was it. The big day. 
   Graduation. 
Goosebumps raced up my bare arms in anticipation. Getting to this place had seemed too slow. But now I was looking back on my progress and wondering where the time had gone. 
   Just one more minute. Please? 
But no, this was it. 
   Checking the mirror once more, I shrugged my arms into the baggy, black sleeves of the graduation gown, and cocked the cap forward just slightly. The pink tassels brushed my forehead, and I smiled. Took a deep breath. 
   Yes, this is it.
