Something that is kind of hard for me to believe (even though I know it’s true), is that I’m done with college. I finished the year pretty much like I finish every other year: by taking finals, hanging out with my friends, and then moving out of Alpha Phi. This year I only made a few changes, which were staying around Indy for about a week longer than usual, and graduating (of course). But now, I’m back to where I always end up when I’m done with school… at home on my couch. I love hanging out at home because it’s really relaxing for me, but this time around, it all feels rather strange.
Exactly a month from today, I start my real life job. This means that I have a month to enjoy my freedom before I work for basically the rest of my life. (This sounds like I’m not looking forward to it – but don’t worry, I am really excited to start my new job.) What I’m not looking forward to though, is the fact that I will never get a summer vacation again, and a spring break, and a Christmas vacation. I will have actual vacation days that I can take whenever I would like (which I’m sure will be nice), but I think I will miss having built in breaks a couple times a year.
Since I only have a month left of complete and utter freedom – I’m going to try to make the most of it. This means sleeping in, doing nothing all day long, visiting friends, and crafting as much as possible. It’s kind of confusing to think that living up my free time will include both doing absolutely nothing and doing all kinds of stuff, but I guess that’s the beauty of it….right? Best of all, I will be doing no homework or studying of ANY kind. That was by far the best part about packing to come home – I didn’t bring any books or any of my binders, and it was wonderful. So this, I guess, is what it feels like to be a graduate. And, it’s not too bad…I’m kind of a fan.
