I will graduate from college with a B.A. in journalism and English.
One month from today, I will celebrate the completion of four semesters at SUNY Albany.
One month from today, Jeff and I will attend the same graduation ceremony, and graduate together.
To say that I’m excited is an understatement. To say that I have no idea what I’m doing after graduation is even more of an understatement.
What I do know is that I have one month to complete all of my class assignments. My last day of classes is technically December 8, and most of my final assignments aren’t due until the 14.
The other day, I wrote myself a pep talk in my notebook. It went something like this:
You do not want to be stressing about school after graduation. This is not that much work at all. You have been in this place before. You have gotten through past semesters. You know that by the middle of December, this will all be in the past.
This is not hard. Just do it. No excuses. You are almost there. You are almost done. You’ve worked hard for this. Just push a little more. You can do this.
Your class assignments are temporary. Graduation is forever.
I’ve been in college since September 2005. I’ve gotten through many semesters, and have learned that stressing out about school work is useless. It will all get done, and this last semester of my college career will be in the past before I know it.
So, dear blog friends, what I’m trying to say is that I am going to work really hard this month to get ALL of my school work done before December 5. I purposely signed up for a December 1 presentation date in one of my classes even though the assignment isn’t due until December 14. On December 5, I don’t want to have to worry about completing any more assignments. I just want to be done.
That said, my posting schedule may be a little off this month. My Fall Guest Post Series is still going strong, and I’m going to try really hard to post as much as I can. I’m still receiving independent study credit for my blog, so I technically have to keep posting (and, I want to!!). I’ve said in the past that I’m not going to apologize for not posting. I still feel that way. As much as my posts are for you, they are for me as well.
I will continue to post about things that I find interesting, like bagel sandwiches, and blogger meet-ups. Please know that I love blogging, and I’m not trying to neglect it. I just need to focus on graduating right now.
With that said, I’d like you to focus on the feta omelet I made this morning:
Isn’t it beautiful?
I knew I needed this omelet for breakfast after Jeff made one last night.
I knew that to fully understand and appreciate the beauty of this omelet, you would need to see a full shot of it from above…
I used two eggs, a splash of skim milk, and a tablespoon of feta. And that’s it. Beauty on a plate, if you ask me.
A buttered piece of toast on the side made the meal. I’m sorry, nothing beats real butter. I’m not actually sorry at all.
…About your college/high school graduation.
…About your favorite omelet filling.
…Your thoughts on real butter.
…What you’re doing this weekend.
Have a great Friday <3
