95 days until the end of my four years of college. Is this real?
I remember the last month of the summer after my senior year in high school. I had a countdown going then too — a countdown to the day I was going to move to Austin to start the next chapter of my life. It seems like yesterday!
I remember when I was merely 15 years old and all I wanted to do was turn 16, get my license and drive myself around. I vocalized it to my parents quite frequently, and they always told me the same thing — that time proceeds to pass faster and faster with every year that goes by. At the time, I’d roll my eyes, because geez, 9th grade seemed like it was never going to end!
Well, here I am! I have my first job interview next week (ahh!) with a Dallas agency, I’m heading to NYC again over spring break to (hopefully) do job interviews there, and I only have 3 more tests left… ever. Those are words I definitely thought I’d never say.
So over the next 95 days,
I want to enjoy the time I have with my friends, experience things around Austin that I have yet to do over the past few years, and soak up as much knowledge as the University of Texas will allow me to in my remaining time.
And a word to the younger ones out there (especially my sisters!) — don’t take a second of what’s given to you for granted… Experience everything you can and soak it up! And just because time flies doesn’t mean you don’t have the time to do every single thing that you want to!
