MayDay

IMG_5265

So May is my favorite month. Mostly because it’s the month that I entered the world, but also because it has always been the start of summer. And really, I typically hate summer, transitions, and saying goodbye to all my friends. But in that first day, there’s the overwhelming joy that you and all your classmates feel as you exit the classroom for the last time. You feel that comradery–that you have been through the year together and it’s finally over.

A few things that this month has in store for me:

  • Graduation. In three(ish) days.
  • My 21st birthday on the 18th.
  • My best friend’s birthday on the 22nd.
  • The GRE test. (yuck!)
  • A friend’s wedding.
  • Lots of reading, working, and wedding planning.
It’s my last summer of living at home. That’s so crazy to think about, and it’s really bittersweet. I’m ready to get out, but I love being home. I know it’s cheesy to say that it’ll always be my home, but that’s true. My heart was carved out of that place.
Also, an only semi-serious complaint: I think graduation is being overshadowed by my birthday and my birthday is being overshadowed by my wedding. So where a normal person would get gifts on three separate occasions, I only get one.
I’m getting jipped. =)
(gypped? gipped?)
And I made a playlist on Spotify last night when I was supposed to be studying. My emotions were hitting me pretty hard, so a lot of the songs are kinda sad and whiny. But I make no apologies.
And now, a list of things I did immediately after I finished my undergrad studies:
  • Went to Walmart to buy a present for my Secret Sister and Orbit gum for myself.
  • Changed into comfortable clothes.
  • Wrote a blog post.
  • Surfed the internet, mainly Buzzfeed and Youtube.
  • Ate dinner alone.
  • Read 50 pages of The Hunger Games.
  • Took a four hour nap.
  • Read 50 more pages of The Hunger Games.
  • Ate a bag of popcorn and a bottle of Mt. Dew. I know I’m getting married and supposed to be on a starvation diet, but screw that. This was the most hectic semester of my life and I’ll eat what I want.
I haven’t even started packing yet. Oops.

Anyway, Happy May 1st!

    Starvation diets are overrated. 😉 I finished all of my work back in December, but I still spoiled myself the day before graduation with Domino's pizza and parmesan bites.
