This year is unlike any other year in college. I would go so far as to say it might even be one of the most important years of my life. That’s right kids it is senior year for this girl. Basically that means it is time for me to get my shit together and figure out how to be a functioning member of society, or as the older generation would tell you it’s time for me to become an “ADULT”! GASP! It seems crazy to me that this year is my last year of college and truthfully college flew by faster for me than high school did. It did not come without its trials and tribulations by any means, but it has been an amazing three years leading up to this point in my life. I met many people along the way some were a blessing and others were a lesson, but all in all College was very kind to me.
One thing many people have been asking me lately is what do I want to do with my life? It seems like a harmless enough question. One might even say it’s a conversation starter, or even the bread and butter of a small talk conversation. Hey, we live in Iowa everyone speaks small talk as their second language. So here it is… wait for it… what I want to do with my life. The answer may come as a shock to you, but I really have NO clue. I have some ideas and believe me some of them are more glamourous than others. The real question on my mind though is how the heck I am going to get through this school year without having a nervous melt down/not drown myself in a bottle of pink moscato before the school year has even really started.
I’ve actually been doing quite a lot of thinking on the matter and to be honest I still can’t believe people my age have their lives figured out. Some people are getting married and others have kids already. I can’t even take care of myself let alone an Adult Manchild or even a real child for that matter. Does anyone else see the issue here?! I figure if I have a degree then maybe my chances of taking care of myself in the real world might be a little better. Thinking about dealing with people at work makes me feel a little better, I said a little not a lot!
Have you ever had to deal with a college student at 8 am. No? Well, let me just tell you if you are a morning person like me the looks of death and pure hatred you receive in the morning will be just what you need to chill your ass out and be a lot less perky. In other words when you are dealing with these troll like creatures, lie. Lie so you don’t die! Pretend, Blend, and wait for class to end! No one besides you and the two Asian kids on campus are going to be ready for class to start and no one besides you and the two Asian kids are going to be happy about learning early in the morning, you’re welcome.
So this year I am trying to get my shit together. So far so good, but then again class has just started so who knows how long this false sense of security will actually last. I can honestly say that college has been a blast and I am a little sad that it is coming to an end. All I really know about the future is that I am excited for the school year to get underway, but I’m also kind of freaking out because it is this year, the year of all years that may set the course for the rest of my life. NO PRESSURE! It’s time to get my shit together!
