As I sit down to write my first ever blog, I am almost at a loss for words. I don't even know where to begin. With this year winding down and coming to an end, I have a lot to look back on. Relationships, friendships, jobs and just everyday life.
I have one semester left of school and I am scared shitless. I sit back and wonder what I am going to do when I graduate. I apply and apply to jobs and keep looking everywhere. I find nothing but nos and unpaid internship offers. Last I checked, lack of money doesn't pay the bills. There is the option of coming back to school once I graduate in May. Then this brings up the where in the hell am I going to get another $30,000. I am over my head in school debt. I once had a friend tell me that the amount of money doesn't matter as long as I end up doing something that makes me happy. I get what he is saying, but I also need to know that when I do graduate and go into the working world that I am not going to be drowning in debt as soon as I get my first paycheck. I am 21 and I am in more debt then most people twice my age.
Enough about the sad part of school, on to something a little more fun. This past semester has been one of the best that I can say that I have ever had. I became friends with some of the greatest people and I can say that I am going to miss them all next semester. I have to go back to the 'wonderful' world of Communication Studies. It is going to be nowhere near as fun as the class in HRI. Even when there is a professor who can't teach or a lecture that we all don't want to go to, it seemed as if it could always be fun. From Cafe B long islands to bottles of wine at Jake's this semester has been a very fun time. College is for fun and friends and even a little bit of booze. Some nights with more than others.
This is my final thought for the night. More is to come, I can promise you that. Here a quote that will be the start of my next post.
