Aaaaand I’m back with a Bachelor’s Degree and The Kiddie Water Resort

This post is going to be short because I am still reeling from my last semester (if you were here with me, you would see the steam emanating from my head), which just ended this past Friday. Also, this weekend I was chaperone, with my sister, to six 10-11 year old girls to a kiddie water resort. Aw, man! That was exhausting! How is it that a child can work all different kinds of technology, but then can’t figure out how to turn the shower on?!

The resort: interesting. I don’t know, I think that I am a real snob because there was just a whole lotta stuff  I saw that made me want to vomit. Bad customer service, Dirty carpets, nasty food, ill-fitting swim suits…ugh! I am not saying that my body is all of that, but wow, just wow. But the kids had fun, and there is nothing that can top that. Right? Right.

Of course there was one kid who was trouble. It’s a shame when an adult has to use adult descriptors in order to talk about a child. I will not go all the way there, but will just say that this girl is a hot mess. She will not be invited on another outing with our family.

At any rate, I am done with undergrad! Yay! But I will not be official until two to three weeks from now. I just don’t understand that, but colleges and universities are bureaucracies. So that explains it all.

I am so excited to be back. I can’t wait to talk to whomever is reading :).

Is anybody watching ABC’s “Scandal?”


Advice For Young College Graduates

Hurray! You’ve made it! The real world is so much better than school. That said, school is easy, and life is hard, ha! I don’t want to scare you because life if fun, as well.

Choosing to work before I got my undergraduate degree was the best decision I have ever made. I brought all of my life skills back into the classroom, and got down to business.

But you guys are starting at ground zero. Of course you will get a job, companies love to pay low wages to fresh graduates–you don’t have any experience. But you do. Demand as much as you can get. Also, you may get an offer for a position that has more perks than money. If, and that’s a big if, the job has really good perks, take that job.

Oh, and I am not really supposed to use the term “job” for your new career, am I? However, you are so young that you may not even end up doing what you thought you would be doing. So for now, you are going to get a job to pay off those student loans, if you have them.

Finally–and this is super corny–follow your dreams. They are the guiding force for you life. They are the things that make life worth living. It doesn’t matter if you end up destitute at the end because at least you’ll have some juicy stories to tell (or be the person pictured above). No matter what, it’s going to be all good!

Adults tell you to be practical because they are confused and all fog-headed. Also, they didn’t have a laser focus on their dreams; they allowed people to plant seeds of doubt. But you, young graduate, you are going to keep your focus, have confidence, and make this world a better place! With a solid work ethic, you can accomplish anything.

Bonne Chance!
