First of all, happy beginning of March! Hope you ladies have yet another wonderful month as we get closer to summa time!
As many of you may know (least be honest, you had no idea), I will be graduating college at the end of this year. This is bittersweet for me because I absolutely love being in college but at the same time, I'm excited to start the next chapter of my life. I mean being an adult means I can do what I want and don't have to listen to anyone else, right? Except for my future boss, the government, and the law... what a bummer. Anywayyy in December I will be strutting my stuff across the stage in my black and gold cap and gown and will be officially entering adulthood whether I like it or not!
And you bet your sweet tush I'll be proudly waiving my fake diploma (they send the real one in the mail a couple weeks after.. what a tease) around while my family snaps photos because they'll probably still be in shock that this is real life and I actually finished college (Mom, I already told you I did not drop out of college and that I didn't spend the past 4 years unemployed, hanging out with friends and spending your money on clothes and alcohol... kind of. Bahah)
You know what graduating college means? It means I'll have to get a real job in the real world. The real world is a terrifying place where us 20-something year olds have to venture off to after we graduate college and are forced to grow into bitter, boring adults who do grown up things like work every morning and raise snotty little brats. Not really but you get the point, I actually really do love babies and children.
No more late night drinking because I actually have to wake up in the mornings to go to work. Forget being weird and meeting other weird people who become your best friends (being weird in college is kind of acceptable; when you're weird after college, people judge you), no more tailgating and football games (even though I never did that anyway), none of the free benefits (free health care, food, gym membership) no more frozen/instant food (although that is probably a good thing) and worst of all, one by one your friends all begin to move back home or far away to get work.
So where exactly was I going with this... This ended up at a really depressing post realizing the end of my college years are approaching but I didn't mean for it to so onward with the fantastic news that I had intended to share.
Since this is my last spring break of college, we're ending it with a bang. On Monday Nic and I will be heading to the Bahamas, Coco Cay, and Key West on a cruise!!! That's right, 4 peaceful and relaxing nights to ourselves, without any worries in the world. In other words, 4 glorious nights of boozing, tanning, and experiencing Bahamian cuisine. My last spring break as a non-adult, reckless college student.
I promised my dad that I would "be good" on the cruise but we all know that saying "what happens on a boat, says on a boat"...? Or something like that ;)
