Two weeks from today, I’m graduating. I’ll walk across the steps of Keating Hall, accept my diploma, and probably be combo laughing/crying for the entire day. I feel like I’ve been super annoying and dramatic about my upcoming graduation in several recent posts, but this is, like, a big deal. Four years ago when I put my deposit in at Fordham, I had no idea what to expect (OK, I kind of expected that I was going to meet my future husband but whatever).
As an incoming freshman, I had a couple of things on my college bucket list. I knew I wanted to study abroad. I knew I wanted to party. I knew I wanted to get a crazy impressive internship. There were also things I knew I should do. I wrote for the school paper, made friendships with professors, and (almost) never skipped class. I am extremely proud of my education, as well as everything I’ve accomplished in the past four years. I wanted to share some moments from the past four years that have been significant in some way.
P.S. If you’re a prospective employer and you’re reading this, please hire me.
1. The first day at my first-ever internship.
2. Introducing yourself to 325798347548 people during orientation.
3. The first time I went out drinking.
4. Going clubbing in NYC for the first time.
5. When I finally got my priorities straight (Pizza = bae).
6. The first and last time I pulled an all-nighter.
…and didn’t even get an A.
But in the end…I wouldn’t change a thing.
