After 4.5 long (and somehow very short) years, I will be graduating with a B.S! A week from tuesday, I will take my last final and immediately after go put the alumni license plate frame on my car. College was a wonderful experience. I learned so much about life, people, the world….and oh ya, biology too. Now, all I have to do is focus on finals and get through them. All I can seem to think about though is how wonderful life will be once I’m out of school and I have time to bake, and go out, and cook, and be creative, maybe try a few of those pins I’ve been accumulating. How wonderful it will be when I have a job that pays me MONEY for my TIME and at the end f the day how I wont have hours of homework I still have to do and a project that I should have started last week. How wonderful the real world must be….but I also know that my glorified image of graduated life is most likely not what I day dream about. So now, I sit with my lab note book in front of me, and a looming practical; but surely next year will be better when I can enjoy the holidays.
