I've been a little out of the loop lately. It was my last semester of my undergrad career. Super weird. Really depressing. Had to say goodbye to a lot of people: friends and co workers. Familiar routines and traditions. Familiar places. Job I had for four years. People I know everywhere I go. Coming home to friends, waking up to friends, running into friends, having meetings with friends, etc.
I have a May class til the 28th. It's Culture of Spain. And yes, I'm extremely bitter I have to take it since I was already living in Spain for five months... The credits got all screwed up there so now I have to retake it here. I'm so checked out of school mode too, sooo we'll see how that goes. :P But I need it to graduate. [Had my first day today; it wasn't as bad as I was expecting! But it's two hours and 40 minutes long, and he didn't give us any breaks... I had to leave part way through because sitting that long kills me.] Then after that, I'll be moving back home to the Cities to volunteer/ get field experience the Hennepin County Juvenile Delinquency Center. I have to volunteer there for 120 hours to finish my Child Advocacy Studies minor up. Then I'll be done.
How strange of a feeling. I'm growing up. I'm going to miss college life. I've met so many amazing people here, especially in just the past semester. Special thanks to MWMF and FRFF and all the Winona regulars for giving me the opportunity to get to know them better. And of course Chartwells... I met most of my closest friends from working there. We're all going our separate ways this summer and after that, I won't be in school anymore and they will be. Ack. I know it's normal to feel this way, and it happens to everyone who graduates probably... But this is what I've known for FIVE YEARS. (Yes, five years. I went to school part-time for the last couple years to save money) And then I have to get a big girl job and pay off my THOUSANDS of dollars of debt... Yuck. Hopefully I pay it off before I die. ;)
Now that it's summer, hopefully I can blog more. I'm hoping to clean out and get rid of a lot of the crap in my room... It's all built up after living in my same room for two years. I honestly don't know how I've accumulated that much shit! Haha, oh well. Hopefully I can just have a whole day dedicated to making heaps of things to donate to Goodwill/ Savers. It needs to be done!
The new chapter in my life is slowly beginning... Here we go!
