There are so many huge changes that take place throughout the college experience. We grow as people, leaders, professionals, we gain knowledge so that we are somewhat prepared for the future when we are thrown out into the “real world” and expected to make it on our own.
As I start my senior year, there are several differences that have made a big impact in my life for the better.
I like to think of myself as a pretty positive and outgoing person. I’m from Edmond, Oklahoma and came to Oklahoma City University as a music major. I made a quick change to broadcasting and public relations after just four days. I have a wonderful mom and dad and two little brothers, who really aren’t so little anymore. I am the president of Alpha Phi sorority and love every second of it. Most of my time is spent doing school work and working on sorority stuff. Other than that, I love spending time with my friends and family, and just being me.
Urban Dictionary defines Senioritis as, “a crippling disease that strikes seniors. Symptoms include: laziness, an over-excessive wearing of track pants, old athletic shirts, sweatpants, athletic shorts, and sweatshirts. Also features a lack of studying, repeated absences, and a generally dismissive attitude. The only known cure is graduation.”
Yep, I definitely have a serious case of this. After being in school for the majority of my life, I can taste the end. The feeling of knowing that you are so close, but yet still so far away can really drag a person down. I see now what my three best friends last year were going through as they were preparing to graduate.
This blog is a means to express what I am going through each week and what life lessons I am learning from my three friends who have moved on to bigger and better things. Turning something that could have been so negative into something I can grow from is my goal. This is for people who are going through the same things or will be going through them in the future.
