On being a senior.... Holy cow, are my emotions all over the place right now. You can find me staying up late to finish a paper because I spent too much time with friends, applying for jobs or thinking about how I should be cleaning. My priorities this semester are much different than in past semesters, and it's not a bad thing. I haven't been obsessively counting my hours of sleep, or counting my study hours. Being with my friends, randomly making food and having a glass of wine with my roommate has become more important than sleep. My grades are important still, which is why the number of nights I've been up until 2 am before an 8 am has increased by 200% this semester. I'm no longer super worried about how much sleep I'm getting, or how clean my room is. I'm not worried about having the perfect morning routine, or having a perfectly put together planner. I'm fully embracing the fact that within 45 days I will be a college graduate, and I need to embrace the college lifestyle while I'm still here.
On being engaged... I'm planning a wedding with my best friend, and that brings this sense of absolute calm to me. Not knowing if I will have a job after graduation, or where I will be is scary, but knowing that in less than 2 years I'll be married to my best friend is calming and exciting. I just bought our wedding binder from Southern Weddings, and am in love. I can't wait to start writing in it!
On job hunting.... Short of begging people to hire me, job hunting is this anxiety ridden process for me. I know that it's all going to work out but I'm really excited to start my potential career in public relations. Talking about leaving my internships are sad however, because I love both of them and wish I could work 3 jobs at one time!
On friends... As Matt and I start to plan our wedding, the people we want in our wedding party have become even that more dear to me. Their constant support, love and help has been invaluable already. I don't think any gift could begin to give back what they've given us already! Being engaged definitely clarifies friendships, and I'm appreciating it!
On family... This fall my family life has been kind of crazy. There have been a lot of happy moments, but a few scary ones. These events have made me so grateful for the wonderful, loving and crazy support system that is my family. Who ever you consider your family, let them know how much you care, and take the time to call them!
On my blog.... I love to blog, I love having my little corner of the internet, but my space right now I don't feel like represents me. I'm not motivated to blog because I don't feel like I'm representing myself. So this is the official notice of rebranding. It is going to take awhile to rebrand since I am finishing up my senior year, but I promise to be back with some amazing content. Thank you to all of my amazing readers for following me for the past two and a half years, I hope to be able to inspire you as I transition from being a college student to a professional!
