I’ve been keeping busy with school, events, and trying to spend as much time with my friends here as possible in between research and other work.
This past week has been full of a lot of reflecting, reading, thinking, and realizations.
I am exactly 3 weeks from graduating from college (!!!) and things are getting REAL. Experiencing things with my friends here “for the last time” has been getting rough and emotional for us all and at this point when someone talks about they are usually met with shhhh’s and “noooooo!” But the thing is, whether we talk about it or not, May 11th is going to be a hard day. It will be SUCH a happy day though. My family will be here, I will graduate. I will be done. But, like I’ve said before, I have a hard time letting go of friends.
So it’s been a somewhat quiet week around here as we all keep on keeping on through these next few weeks.
I did take my little ones to the LUL probate this week and took them out with me. They are so fun. LUL is the frat that I’ve worked with a lot through the years and I’ve become really close with the guys. I’m going to miss them too! My first-years are fun ladies so taking them and introducing them to everyone was really enjoyable. I felt like a proud mama watching as they became more comfortable with themselves throughout the night.
Today we had our senior brunch at Dean Lee’s house, and we ate omelets and she read Dr. Seuss to us and then gave us each a book! It was such a fun time and an opportunity that I know wouldn’t happen at any other school. I have been so blessed to be a part of this community.
Tomorrow I have plans to go out with my friend Syedah and take some senior pictures so that we can have some pretty spring pictures. I’ll share some results when we come back!
