I'M DONE WITH COLLEGE BITCHES!!!
So, after 4.25 years in college, I have FINALLY graduated! With two degrees!
Most people would say here "I can't believe it's over...it went by so fast..." blah blah blah. But you know what? It didn't go by that fast. I feel like I've been in college my whole life. I hardly remember what life was like before college. What did I do? Who were my friends? What did I wear? My life is completely different now and I've grown so much from this experience. It was SO WORTH the amount of debt I'm in. And while I had some major fall-outs, made some really stupid mistakes, and threw up more times than I care to remember, it was overall a really fabulous time. I chose majors I loved, I got great work experience, I had a shit ton of fun, and I met some amazing people. I feel like I really made the most of my time here, and I'm looking forward to where life takes me next.
But first, let's look at some pictures from graduation, shall we?
On the way to the ceremony...
Even though it was just Autumn Commencement, there were still 2000 people graduating. It took FOREVER. I wished that I brought a snack.
My mom and dad came to support me and were festively attired in scarlet and gray.
Posing with my boyfriend, the style icon.
After the ceremony, I went to Lindey's in German Village with my family and my boyfriend's family. I really wish I would have taken pictures there, because it's gorgeous inside and my food was TO DIE FOR. I ordered a root vegetable salad (beets!), duck, and for dessert I had a Payday martini. I am telling you, if you have the money to go to this place, YOU SIMPLY MUST.
Afterwards I went to the bar that was formerly McFadden's. I don't remember what it's called now, but Sunday night was their last night open before closing for remodeling. Thus, the drinks were cheap. Really cheap. Like, they were mostly free. Irish car bombs for all! I took some pictures and videos there, but none that anyone would ever want posted on the internet.
Do you have any advice for this new grad? Please share in the comments!
