College roommates living the city life. Sharing OUR everyday experiences. Yes this is real life!
This weekend solidified my pride in Emmanuel, the students put together a dance marathon for Boston Children’s Hospital. They set a fundraising goal of 20K they doubled that and raised over 40K. Then after the horrific events that happened only minutes from campus the students rallied and held a candlelight vigil on campus for people they have never met. Thank you Emmanuel. You make me proud to be an alumni of such an amazing school with students that keep the values of the college alive. You are all true Emmanuel Saints.
It’s ECs spring break this week and it made me think back to my spring break trips, Atlanta, Rome and San Diego each was amazing and so much fun in its own way.
I have been working full time for about four months now, and I honestly thought it was going to be the worst thing ever. I always wondered how am I going to be in an office Monday-Friday 8-5? I thought I was going to hate it and never be able to have a big girl job. Luckily I have some of the best coworkers a girl could as for which makes it so much better!
Now that I am working and making my own money I am becoming more and more independent and am getting closer and closer to leaving home and moving out on my own. I always knew that after college I would go home and live with my parents and then eventually move out into my own apartment. I just never thought that I would want to or be ready to within a year of graduating.
I am so happy and amazed with how my life is turning out. :)
Yesterday and today were move in day at EC. Talk about withdrawals. Not going back to college when the leaves start to turn is like going through a bad breakup. When your there, you take it for granted. When you leave, you don’t realize how good life was and how easy you had it. What is better than living with your best friends and making more memories than you could ever count? I miss it beyond belief, but it is time to be a big girl…UGH!
What I always go back to, I am the luckiest for every experience I have had and everyone I have in my life.
Ok, enough being sappy.
L and I have finally finished our summer camp jobs and are beginning the long process of job applications and interviews. Although it is stressful I am so excited to begin the next chapter of my life. I interviewed yesterday for a marketing firm that made me realize that not all work places are stuffy and serious. I really hope I get this job and love waking up everyday to go to work. Wish me luck!
