About this submission

I didn’t like the university course I chose and was too scared to drop out. I decided in 2019 to change my attitude and enjoy my final year, very much looking forward to finishing in 2020. Then, like everyone, spent months in my childhood bedroom. Still, I could look forward to graduating and feeling good about it. I felt good for about a week. When a cowboy rides off into the sunset, that’s it. He graduates, triumphant. I wanted to infuse my bittersweet graduation blues in this story. This is the meaning of the final shot. I also love westerns.
