Today is the day that I am officially done with my undergraduate college career. Now, I can go wherever I want, build my life, color outside the lines, and create an existance that I have always wanted!!
I always say that one should live in the moment, so this may seem redundant, but now the doors are opened up to me! I have no obligations, no plans, no ties to any one place on this earth. Now, now I can take leaps! I can move next to the ocean or travel for a while or stay here and save money while I work on my poetry and sit in the Tea House. I can spend my nights reading for pleasure and my morinings making love…also for pleasure! I can volunteer when I want, not for credit. I can RELAX!!! I can BREATHE!!!! no more grades or busy work or deadlines. No more redundant classes and narrow minded professors.
I have to admit that I will miss the research and the crafting of papers into an artistic showcase and argument, I loved doing that. I loved all my research papers, big projects, internships, and volunteering. I loved three of my professors dearly, Haddock, Kent, and Aberle. I loved my summer jobs and my study abroad trip, I loved the Tilt and all my mentors and friends there. I loved the parties and friendships and new experiences. Oh college, thanks for it all!!!!!
I came into college as a Freshman with specific goals:
One- to never again be the shy girl that nobody knows
Two- to gain all the experience I possibly could
Three- to study abroad
Now I am going into the world with some solid goals:
One- to never let anything compromise my mission of peace
Two- to walk in love
Three - to live abroad
Four- to live next to the ocean
Five- to create an existance that I can thrive in- for instance the room that I live in, the people I surround myself with, and my habits. I want to write, be outside, meditate and do yoga
Six- to work with kids who desperately need love
