For the past three years I have awaited this moment of having my last advising appointment with my adviser. I would daydream about showing up all chippery filled with joy and excitement. Was it as awesome as I had forseen? nope. Now I’m drinking Ginger Ale to ease my upset stomach.
Why? College is … well college. It is what you make it ( or made it– if you’ve already graduated). I think I’ve done pretty well for myself so far. I graduate in December 2012. During the winter break I was freaking out because it wasn’t graduating in August as planned due to an awful class: read The Dilemma. Now I’ve never been more happy I made that D because I have zero idea what I plan to do once I walk the stage; four years of tears, sweat, all nighters, (drunkeness), sorority events/bills, hookah :), and that rare, distinct, fulfillment of acomplishment. I’m usually like this around this time of year; all panicy and what not about mid-terms. This year is a bit different. Now I’m paying bills, working 36 hours a week, VP of an organization, oh and school ( don’t forget that important one). No better way to swim than to jump in the water. Hello real world! ( I think I balance it all okay…)
Of course I speak too soon, tomorrow I have to be at two places at once. Stay tuned for that blog because I have a feeling it’s going to be one hell of a day. By the way, the picture below is referring to blackboard assignments/quizes or tests professors post online. Definitely been there!
8:00 a.m. Spanish exam
9:30-10:50 a.m. class
11:00 a.m.- 8 p.m. work ( get my Baaarr-ista on)
oh…. and I have to be at a meeting at 5:30 p.m. Considering I’m Vice President and I’ve missed the past two meetings I have to be there this time. The last thing I want is the President regretting appointing me her VP.
Anyway, my adviser is awesome, she has helped/guide me through my college career ( as an advider should!). I just had daydreamed this day being a little bit more exciting.
