The One a Year Later

Today, the class of 2010 graduated from my alma mater, and all I can think is... "How come THEY got a day of sunshine??" No, really. Jealous!


As you can see, our day was cold and rainy, which made the walk across campus a little treacherous in heels. :)

I'm so happy for the class of 2010--especially for my sorority sisters and my B1E girls. I was a freshman RA as a sophomore, and it still boggles my mind that those girls graduated today. I'm nervous and excited for them, because while it's amazing to suddenly find yourself with so much freedom and opportunity, it's still very tough out there, and it's hard to realize you won't get everything you need or want the first year out of school.

I'm not sure I have a point in writing this post, except to say that I can't believe it's been a year. I can't believe how fast it went by. I'm not sure I accomplished much of anything in this year, and I'm not sure I'm where I'm supposed to be, or doing what I'm supposed to be doing, but it's been a ride. When June comes around and my one year anniversary of being a New Yorker rolls in with it, I'm sure I'll be just as flabbergasted and startled by how fast it went. Is it always this quick once you're in the real world?

"For what it’s worth: it’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again."
