Thoughts from Saturday

It's 7 am on a Saturday morning, which seemed like the perfect time to start writing down some of the things that have been on my mind recently for the past couple of weeks. Despite being half asleep, I'm surprised how easily the words come. For the first time in the past nearly four years, I have found myself ready to leave. I am ready to pack up my life to go home and then make my way to New York City. I have a couple of things in the works coming together and am very excited to share in the next couple of months! 

I came into college very unaware of "the culture." Honestly, as glamorized as the party life can be, after a while it starts to get old. For me, going out is more about hanging out with the same people that I have the best time with at Walmart. If you are feeling this way, especially as a collegiate female, you are not alone- I am in the same rickety boat (even if at this point, it is nothing more than a sinking raft). 

Im the last couple of weeks, I have rediscovered the importance of humor. Being able to laugh at yourself in everyday situations is the only way to truly live, and I feel very fortunate to have friends and family that do the same. I have recently found myself in a ton of scenarios where I can only laugh, collect the story and move on to the next. There are very few things in life that are horribly irreversible- the rest is generally pretty irrelevant. (I always try to remember the 5 year rule- will it matter in 2022? Probably not.)

Additionally if you are an underclassman worried about leaving the security of college, I have talked with enough friends to know that you will change. College lasts four years for a reason. For the next couple of months I look forward to taking advantage of all that this university has to offer, but come May 21st, I'll be ready. {Image}
