Because it’s all coming to an end. I’ve been in school for so long. As a college student, I’ve survived the economic collapse and ever rising sea of raised fees within the CSU system. Changing majors, multiple times, completing multiple degrees, minors, and certifications.
A cancelled semester abroad, the roommates from hell, amazing roommates, living at home, living on my own. Working at Starbucks, working at a Barnes & Noble, internships, internships, and more internships, ultimately becoming a creative director and blog editor, working for the university in general. I’ve modeled, dated, traveled, made mistakes, new friends, lovers, trimmed the fat from my life several times over, and somehow after it all, I’m still standing.
College was amazing, but I’m excited that I’m down to my last 33 units, and to be starting my last Fall semester tomorrow. I don’t know what this next year will bring, but I’m excited to finally be done with school and leaving this valley.
