I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not ready to graduate. I have one class left in my undergraduate career, and I’m just waiting to become an emotional wreck when the underclassmen start leaving to go home for the summer, and then again when graduation is officially over. I’ve loved college… a lot… but there is one thing that is pulling me through this emotional and kind of scary time in my life: My future. I’m staying in Indy…and I couldn’t be more excited. Of course I would love to stay in college forever, but I’m sure that I would eventually get tired of it and be ready to leave. And truthfully… real life is pretty awesome. I’ve had a couple of glimpses into real life through my internships, and I really loved them all. Going to breakfast, lunch, and dinner for meetings or just to visit…going on business trips… and having real life responsibility… it’s all really awesome actually… and deep down inside… I’m pumped.
Something else that is going to be awesome about my post-grad life is having my own space for the first time. I’ve lived in a sorority house for 3 years, and even though I’ve had some amazing experiences there, I’m excited to have my own room. And to decorate it. It will be different not being able to see my friends pretty much anytime I’d like, but that’s what brunch/lunch/dinner dates are for… and I can’t wait to have them… all the time. I’ve come to the conclusion that I shall become a Cafe Patachou regular… because everything in life should be enjoyed along with an omelet, cinnamon toast, and amazing coffee. Basically, I’ve decided that my post-grad life will be fabulous, and that I will survive even though everything I do won’t revolve around Butler anymore.
