My time with Scantrons is coming to a close

Senioritis has hit in full force and I'm surprised that it waited this long to rear its head. Only eight more weeks of tests, chapter readings and class projects. After 16.5 years behind a desk, it's strange to think that I will never have to answer multiple choice questions or work hard not to leave stray marks on a Scantron test ever again. Because let's face it, unless the odds are in my favor and grad school in Europe is an option, my higher education career is done. Finito. Fait.

I'm working on several projects outside the classroom and now whenever I crack open a textbook I realize that I'm past the stage of learning theoretical principles anymore. Classroom lectures and "what if" scenarios won't help me once I move my grad cap tassel from the left to the right (or is it right to left?).

I've decided that I love working on varying projects at once. Compartmentalizing my time and juggling multiple deadlines is a rush, but I wouldn't have this semester any other way. The downside is that I sometimes go three days without seeing my roommates, but I knew I wasn't getting into a 9-5 industry. The upside to the hectic schedule is I get to spend the majority of my time working with one of my best friends. We have come full circle: starting out as the freshman dynamic duo yearbook section editors who didn't have a clue what was going on the first few months to working together again as seniors. Thankfully this time around we know what we're doing. Or at least like to pretend we do.

My future may be vague and confusing, but at least there will be no vocabulary quizzes or memorization tests in it. And for that, I am thankful, but also a little sad because I'm an ace at memorization.

On a semi-unrelated on the lookout for some exciting changes on the blog in the next few weeks! If that's not the height of cryptic, I don't know what is.

I'm so excited for you! I remember when I graduated I felt so listless. I was a little depressed because I felt like I didn't have anything to do anymore, but I actually had so much ahead of me!

I'm excited to see all the changes you have planned for your blog!
