I cannot believe I am in my last semester of undergrad. It seems like just yesterday I was filling out college applications stressing over where I wanted to go. As I try to make the most of my last few months of college I can’t help but start to think about what my future holds for next year.
This semester I am doing a PR and marketing internship with a wedding company. Twice a week I commute into the city and work from 9:00-5:30. On top of that, I am also taking six classes and rehearsing for three different dance performances. I am insanely busy but I wouldn’t change anything. I am so thankful for the opportunities I have been given and am looking forward to take on the challenge.
For the first time I’m actually interested in all of my classes. Most of them are distribution classes that I pushed off taking but it turns out they are all fascinating and thought provoking. I get to dance every day and I love the work I’m doing at my internship.
Having the chance to work in Manhattan has me excited for life after graduation. Next fall I hope to work and live in the city. Over the next couple of months I plan to start looking at apartments in the Brooklyn and Queens area as well as starting to apply to jobs. (If you have any suggestions please let me know! Any and all suggestions are welcome!!).
It’s weird to think about how in only a short time, my life will be completely different. For the past three and a half years I’ve had the chance to learn about subjects I love and surround myself with amazing friends that have helped shaped me into the person I am today.
I live with some of my best friends, I get to dance every single day and next year that may not be the case. College has been an incredible experience and I know I’m going to miss it but I’d be lying if I didn’t say I am ready to move on. Although it’s scary with all of the uncertainty, I am ready for a change.
How do you deal with big changes in your life?
