Hey there. It’s been seven months and I bet you think I’ve completely dropped off the map. Or died. Well you’re wrong! I have been living the life of a soon-to-be college graduate – you know, just in a constant state of stress, anxiety, occasionally hungover, and trying to live life to the fullest. I would be lying to you if I said I wasn’t completely overwhelmed.
As my college career draws nearer and nearer to a close, I realize just how influential relationships are above all else. I have come to value relationships over school, tests, homework, and even my work because all of those things end. I am finished with my major, but continue to see professors in my discipline regularly and meet with them for coffee and life-chats. The friends I have now are the friends I will have forever, and for them I am extremely grateful.
My university experience will end in 57 days, 20 hours, and 14 minutes (not that I’m counting down or anything) and I can honestly say that I am equally excited and terrified. Graduation feels like a big deal, but I know that once it is over it will be a memory and some pictures and a piece of paper on the wall that says I did it. That’s all I want – the piece of paper and the memories. I cannot wait to see what the rest of my life holds for me and what the future will bring. But for now, I will continue to fill out as many job applications as possible and pray that I can get interviews. Thank you all for supporting me, even in my 7-month hiatus. You’re really the best. I promise I’m going to keep writing on here about my adventures, so stay posted!
