50 Days Until Graduation!!!


I have been counting down the number of days until graduation since December and I cannot tell you how excited I am about it! Every time anyone asks me to tell them about me (which btw happens a lot in interviews and conferences) I made sure to say I’m graduating in XX days! I know in student affairs we are all about getting others to graduation… but this is my graduation. I have been in school for all of my memorable life! When I graduated from my undergrad I thought it was great, but I knew I would still be going to school in the fall. But this time I will actually be leaving my academic side of school (because I’m obviously still going to be going to work at an institution)! Not that I won’t still be learning because I know I’m all about finding out more information (especially since “Input” is my number two in strengths quest). I just won’t have to be stressing about turning things in for a grade. This will be very nice, at least until I decide to go back for a Doctorate!

However, I STILL HAVE 50 DAYS!!! I still have at least one paper and 6-8 hours of reading each week, a handful of group projects, oh… and Comps (defending a case in front of my faculty using my knowledge from the past 2 years)!!! J After being gone for the past week and a half for The Placement Exchange and NASPA, I am finding it to be a little bit of a challenge to get back into the swing of things… but I refuse to get senioritis! I am determined to end with a bang and stay ahead of the game. In fact, my plan is to have everything, which is possible to be done, ready to turn in by mid-April! I know I will still have a few things to do at the end of the semester, but I think I’d like to have that last month to “relax.” Of course that all depends on whether or not I already have my job in place! If not, I’ll surely have time to do more job searches and some on campus interviews. If I am all set, I’ll get to hang out with my friends, jump in the river for graduation (tradition on our campus), and sleep in a little!

So in a nutshell, the things that will go through your mind when you still have 50 days left till graduation will, more than likely, involve: graduation, finishing your classwork early (we shall see), and finding that awesome job!!! And from what I’ve heard, these last few days will go by fast. So while I’m getting all excited about it, I’m trying to remember to embrace these last few days, as I do with any upcoming transition J

Out of curiosity, I’d like to hear from you if you are in some sort of transition! What is it and what are some things on your mind?! Let me know!! Have a fabulous day!
