thoughts of a senior

Its here: Your final year. You are now a senior. You have been praying for this day to come Graduatewhile you struggled yourself through endless midterms, all-nighters, group projects from hell, and finals, and now its finally here. But you no longer want this day to come.

The day you realize that your life cant evolve around costume parties, beer-pong, game days, and taking 6 shots and staying up all night to see if you can get your crush to actually notice you. This is the day when you have to begin figuring out your life.

Just a year ago, it all seamed so far away. But now your college goodbye is waiting at your doorsteps. Soon post-college life will come knocking, and hopefully it wont completely knock you down.

These last four years of your life has broken your heart, served you C´s on your tests, made you gain 10 pounds, had you fight with you best friends, (as a member of sorority: given you lots of social probations..), thrown up your last shot of fireball and the domino you just ate. These years have had you tumble and fall, but it has also made you rise each and every time.

You have learned that when you heart is broken nothing can cure it like a hug from a friend (or a few drinks and texts from your other crush). That professors are people and that they want you to succeed, and that the C´s you get can with a lot of hard work turn into A´s. The pounds you gained may have made you more self conscious, but lets be real no one wants to look like a stick skinny freshman either, so I am sure you look way better with those pounds on (otherwise there is always the gym and low carb). And your best-friend will forgive you: Cause you are best-friends and its gonna come a day when she is gonna want you to forgive her to. For the throw up and Dominos: you just have to learn that the last shot you get is always a waste of money .. and so is Dominos 2 am..

We stumble and we fall and look forward to the day we suddenly are gonna turn into sophisticated individuals who loves drinking wine and go to art shows, but when senior year suddenly approaches: We realize its happening too soon. We wanna continue having Dominos at 2 am.

People dont one day wake up and realize they are adult human beings that now has to pay bills other than college tuition, its a process. We slowly grow into these people, and we do it through those epic nights out and the falls we have in life. Each time we fall and college life knocks us down, we had the courage to get up and grow up from it so that we hopefully dont repeat the same mistakes (if not we make the same stupid mistake until we DO learn).

Learning is growing, and throughout your life you are gonna learn and therefore you are gonna grow. If you managed to stand up after a night of endless stupidity and broken hearts, then you can manage to stand up and face adult life each day for the rest of your life.

So when post graduation and adult life do come knocking just know that you are gonna be ready, not because you have done it before, but because college taught you endless times to get up and fight for yourself, your friends, your grades, and your dreams. Believe me: you are more prepared than you think.

If not, then Dominos is always there.

Sorry for being a little low on the posting recently but college tried to kill me by drowning me in midterms. I have had 4 papers, 1 quiz, one presentation and one reading summary due these last three days. I even logged out of facebook!

Anyways, here are some picture from the exchange we had with Sigma Chi. I was dressed as Minnie Mouse since the theme was Dream Job and I wanted to work for Disney.

The most fun with these events is that noone ever goes as their dream job, but just make up random stuff. One of the girls was Santa, one was homeless, others were wizards and a lot of guys where basketball players..PhotoEditorGen-1

When we have events like this we rent a busses to take us to a bar or club that we have rented.

Tips to help you stay motivated mid semester

My best tips

  1. Calender: put everything you need to do in your calender
  2. Plan: Paper due monday, project tuesday, test on wedensday and quiz on thuresday? Might be a good idea to use those three extra days of the week to get a head start.. yes I am talking about the weekend.
  3. wake up early: you know there is 5 very useful hours between 7 am and 12? put them to use.
  4. work out: great hot body? and also more energy!
  5. Stay off those quizzes at Buzzfeed. I might allow Elitedaily cause they sometimes have great motivation articles..

And seriously guys remember you have made it to the half, which means that its only the other half left.. and lets be honest you DO NOT wanna meet the summer with bad grades!

We can do it!
