I was quite sad to graduate. I left all of my friends in good 'ole WI and moved to Cali...it was really hard. But I had a job all set here and lots of connections through Teach for America, so that made it a lot easier.
I guess what has made me happy now is knowing that my mid 20s have ruled just as much as my early 20s. I have had a BLAST!! For those who say, all the good times are in undergrad...well, they're idiots!
I know I know, the rest of my life lies ahead. I am just in a funk right now I suppose. As a friend just said on the phone, "why be sad about something you have no control over." Yet, it makes it more difficult to stop thinking about when most of my friends are staying in school for 5th year masters programs.
I understand people graduate, move away from all of their friends, and then make all new friends all of the time.
I suppose there is something about the "college lifestyle" (or at least the one I led) that I will always look back on and smile/reminisce about. Namely, going to bed at 6:00AM after a crazy night with friends instead of waking up at 6:00AM for a long day of work. Then again, life as a party animal was beginning to get a tad old. I just need to find something I really care about, some purpose for my life (while making decent money)... The search continues.
