To say that my life is busy is basically an understatement. Between work (at my internship and on campus), class, meetings, and homework, I am busy from 7:00 a.m. until at least 11:00 or 12:00 every night, and even later when I have projects, papers, or tests (which is every week). Now don’t get me wrong, I love being busy, but I truly can’t wait until I graduate so that I will possibly have less to do for once. The thought of coming home from work and actually being able to do things that a real person does, rather than reading an outrageously large textbook on Health Care Econ or writing a paper about the global issues facing your company makes me so excited I could basically explode.
This is how I have felt since my freshman year…and I have been getting even more excited about it since the real world is closer now than it ever has been. But now, at least once a week in my Sales class, my professor warns us to appreciate how much time we have now, while we are in college, because things will change drastically when we leave. For me, this is terrifying. I have been looking forward to graduating for the last 3 years, hoping that when I’m done with school I might sleep more than 4 hours a night, or I might be able to just sit and watch a movie without doing 10 other things at the same time. I guess I shouldn’t worry about this now, I should just hang out and enjoy my crazy busy life as it is right now. And in 7 months when I graduate, and (hopefully) start a real person job, then I will just see what happens. If I am busier, I’ll handle it, and if I’m less busy… I’ll celebrate. I shouldn’t worry about it… but I just can’t help but wonder… you know?
