Well after a very long (much needed) hiatus from my computer (that’s right I’m talking Facebook, Twitter, even you WordPress bloggers) I am back and I can officially say I’m a college graduate! It feels so weird to not have any homework or exams to study for I don’t know what to do with myself, except blog that is.
I am taking a week break or so before I start work for the Summer, and then I will be returning to Connecticut for graduate school. I cut my masters down to one year so after that is when I’ll really be entering into the music industry, hopefully doing more than just coffee runs.
As a type A personality I tend to set standards for myself very high. Almost unreachable. And I really don’t stop until I get there, which I think is something only the people closest to me know, and everyone else thinks I’m crazy when I say that I graduated college in three years with two majors and three part-time jobs (okay, when I list it all out like that it does seem kind of crazy), but I promise there was never a weekend I didn’t have free time to go out with friends and relax. I really don’t know how I managed it all, but now all I know is that I’m going crazy without a gully packed iCal and regimented schedule.
I missed venting to all of your oh so much!
I feel like I’m at a point now though where my priorities are drastically changing from others my age. I’d rather network at an event for a radio station then hit the clubs, I’d rather spend a night at home with my boyfriend and some Chinese food than go to the local fraternity party. I’m at a point now where I’m not sure if I’m just getting boring, or caring about the stuff that actually matters.
Everyone has different hopes and dreams though, so I don’t think anyone is wrong, I just think it has to do with where you want to go and when you want to get there.
I received a graduation card that said…
“There wouldn’t be a million stars in the sky if we were all supposed to wish on the same one.”
That stuck with me. It made me realize that just because my dreams and aspirations seem mature, different, even out of reach, doesn’t mean that they’re wrong for me.
That’s what I want to leave you all with today.
Whatever your dream is, however out of reach it seems, the longer the journey the more time to find yourself, the better you find yourself the more true you are, and the more true you are the more chance you have to be the best at whatever you want to do.
Maybe I sound a
little too sappy, I’ll just let Coldplay take it from here…
