This is it. My last semester at Butler. Even though I’ve been a senior for awhile now…it feels strangely more official now that I’ve really had my last first day of school…ever. Most of my classes are only senior classes…so each professor is taking this last semester to teach us everything that we might need to know before we venture out into the real world. I appreciate it, but it just makes our future/the real world that much more real and imminent.
The one not-so-fun thing about being a senior is being asked over and over again… “So are you ready to leave? Are you sad? What are you doing after you graduate?” Fortunately, I have a job for after graduation, so that is a really positive thing to mention, but it is kind of difficult to concisely explain what my post-grad job is. As for the other questions, I understand why people ask them…all the time…but on this end…it gets old. So for the record….
Am I ready to leave Butler??? Nope. I like college a lot. And Butler has been the perfect place to spend my college years.
Am I sad??? Yes. Think about it…living in a house with 75 of your closest friends, putting off all real financial responsibility, going to class in your pajamas, living within walking distance of a Starbucks where you will always see at least one person you know, never having to cook for yourself, having social events to attend pretty much whenever you would like….college has been great. So I am sad.
Throughout the semester I’ll share some more of my thoughts as a senior, because I figure that I only get to be a senior once…so I should make the most of it…right?
