So I don’t usually write on Tumblr, but I’d say this is one of those milestones that deserves a post. Graduation is in 5 days and I still can’t believe it’s been 4 years already. I’M DONE WITH HBU. Oh gosh, that’s so weird.
I guess I could say that, overall, I had a pretty good college experience. I may not have been like one of those “typical” college kids. Idk what typical entails, but from the posts that I’ve seen on facebook from old high school friends, I wasn’t typical. Haha. I lived at home for the majority of college. I didn’t really go to crazy college parties. I never really went through the whole omgilovedrinkingomg phase. And once I did turn 21 and I could go out and drink…ish, I found out that I can’t handle alcohol all that well. Haha, figures.
Anyway, college went by really quickly. Well, relatively quickly. I started off freshman year as a loner. Haha. I went to class, studied in my dorm room, and went home every weekend without fail. I didn’t really know many people at HBU and I kinda sheltered myself from social interaction ahah. I knew maybe…. two? people. Chocbar and Jeromie. Haha. I had forgotten how to make friends! Not that I didn’t have any opportunities. I remember telling my sisters that there was this girl in almost ALL of my classes that I thought I could be friends with…but she wouldn’t talk to me. Hahaha, and then Jeromie and Stacy tried to play matchmaker and asked her to be friends with me at Quest one night. But then a few months passed and we’ve been frans ever since. (: Eheh.
For me, joining FSA is probably what changed the social aspect of college the most. I probably wouldn’t have joined if it wasn’t for Jeromie and his persistent self. So thank you, love. Although at that time, you weren’t “love”. You were “big brother”. Hahahaha. Anywaysssss….
Fast forwarding through the years…Goodphil…Husky Revue…grapefruit babies…X family haha…SEXiled…Goodphil again…Husky Revue again..I think you’re really preeeetttyy…This is an evite for our FSA friends…Bunso….Micro…BunsoturnsintoBabe…Goodphil volleyball…
And then before I know it, I’m a senior. Senior year was weird. I wasn’t as active in FSA as I may have wanted to be. I was one of the older people in the club. When did that happen?!? All these youngins joined FSA and we doubled in size. Cray. Most of them probably don’t even know that I was one of the VPs last year given how inactive I was this year. Hah. Sadface. But I was applying to PT schools and focusing on graduating… and I just felt a little disconnected. Not just with the new members, but also with old friends. I feel like most of the seniors kind of did their own thang and we drifted. ): Ah well. So much happened over the course of this year. A lot of sadness this spring semester especially. Before this semester, i couldn’t remember the last funeral that I went to. I was way too young. But it’s so different when you’re older. You can actually understand what’s happening. I went to two within two months and my eyes are all dried out now. And then I didn’t get into UTMB and I just felt like UGHpleasestoppunchingmeoverandoverinthestomach. I kept worrying that I wouldn’t get in anywhere and then I’d have to apply again and I’d be a super disappointment to everyone and to myself. But I got over it. Haha. And then I got into St. Augustine and I was like, YAYthere’shope! Everything was dandy again. Plus (and kinda minus), it’s a shorter, accelerated program. Which is scary, but whoo. Oh, and amongst all this, there was the devil Capstone, which reinforced my fear of public speaking and made sure I knew how much I suck at it. Freaking Capstone. I had been dreading you since I heard about you freshman year….somehow, I got through it and now, I’m here. (: I have 3-4 months until I start school again and I want to make the most of it.
Some things that I want to do this summer:
-Go to Disney World
-Go to Krause Springs or Hamilton again
-Figure out how to get books onto my Kindle
-Meet my future nephew and spend as much time with my nieces and nephew as I can
-Get into running
-Try all the restaurants on my list…which is a reason why the previous one is on here.
-Spend time with family and friends
I’m sure there’s a lot more I want to add to this list, but this is it for now.
I can’t believe I’m going to be living in Austin by myself. TOO WEIRD. And then I have to go through the whole process of HOW DO I MAKE FRIENDS?!?! again. Ahhh, I hope everything turns out well.
This post is so long. Hahaha, but since I doubt anyone will actually read this other than … maybe.. maaaaybe Jeromie… I’d like to thank you for being my best friend and boyfriend. I know I really suck at being a girlfriend. Haha, seriously, I’m so attitudey, but you love me anyway. And I know I don’t show my appreciation enough. I’m not very good at all that mushy gushy stuff. So, I love you and I appreciate you. (:
Now, enough of that ooeygooeyloveydoveyness. I just wanted to write this post so that in case I forget everything that I was feeling during this transition in 5 years, I can go back to this and reminisce my college life. I’m going to miss it. <3
IT’S THE END OF AN ERA!!! Hahaha, maybe I’ll have a Friends marathon this summer too.
To new beginnings!
