They say your body and cells change every 7 years. From age 21-28 is when we emotionally and physically enter adulthood. Yikes. I’m definitely a changed woman.
My university continues to email me about the countdown to graduation, finalizing my grades, and ordering a cap and gown. I want to respond and tell them to leave me alone… every. single. time. But I’m honestly so, so happy to have made it this far, because sometimes I didn’t think I actually would. HA. Four years ago, if you asked me where I would be now, I would’ve told you that four years is forever away. Now I’m so confused, because those four years felt more like four seconds. But they were definitely some of the best years of my life.
With 30 days left until I try not to trip across the stage or blink in my picture with the President, I’ve come up with 16 things (#Classof2016) to help get me through this transition from colleging, to moving across the country and adulting.
Roast s’mores at the fire pit on my campus(completed this task before it was banned)
- Enjoy every last Darty, BBJ Wednesday and After Hours like it’s my job
- LIBERTY OPENS AT 11 AM
- Anything involving the words “half-off” cannot be ignored
- Free steakhouse meals don’t exist in the real world
- Neither do magic meals at Starbucks
- Make my friends and sisters hangout with me (if you’re reading this, HANGOUT WITH ME)
- Money apparently doesn’t grow on trees ?!!?
- Make sure those that matter most to me know
- Continue my habit of building a healthy lifestyle
- Waking up early needs to become a thing of the future + going to bed late needs to become a thing of the past
- Cooking and adulting and cooking ..
- Actually take cap and gown pictures for graduation …
- You’ll never be as young as you are now
- Denial is no longer an option
- But in agreement with Anne Frank: “What a wonderful thought it is that some of the best days of our lives haven’t happened yet.”
