Last week, it was still perfectly acceptable to complain about being in the midst of schoolwork and classes and needing to do a couple of loads of laundry (they didn't get done) (in case you were dying to know). Even as my hometown friends bombarded Facebook with jumping graduation shots and plane tickets to South America or Europe, I was still existing in my normal. Going to work, organizing my email, planning weekend activities. It ain't over till the fat lady sings MM in MMDDYYYY is solidly 06.
But then, the 05 did indeed switch sneakily on over to 06, and helpless was I to stop it. And all of a sudden, we were thrust into a time vacuum of sorts that's sucking us towards June 14th and tossing around like confetti, things like:
Finals and projects and essays. Wait wait huh, did we get fair warning for this though?
Today being the last day of classes. EVER. WHAT IS LIFE WITHOUT CLASSES IDK.
Frantically trying to finish booking Europe.
Finding people to live with.
Picking up cap and gowns.
Realizing my parents will be here next week.
Somehow figuring out a way to pack up my whole room without hyperventilating too much.
Uh... employment. L-O-L.
Today being the last day of my internship.
Outfits for graduation festivities next week.
Making the best of campus (they turned the fountains back on for commencement week after having shut them down for a year as a symbolic gesture in light of the California drought ... we are going nuts bringing in the floaties and inner tubes and spending whole afternoons fountain-hopping, that's for sure).
Listening to sentimental, bright-eyed, go change the world last lectures from professors.
Inching towards true adulthood.
And most importantly,
strategizing for Free Donut Day at Krispy Kreme this Friday.
Excuse the crazy for the next couple of weeks please!
