Halfway There, Almost Done.

Just finished the fall semester of my senior year of college. I am halfway done with my college career. It is crazy to think that in five months I will graduate college and be out in the real world. It is really scary to think about but right now I am going to focus on what this fall semester has brought me and has also taught me.

Friendship

College is full of making friends and losing friends. The closer I get to graduating the more I realize who my real friends are. I posted a blog about friendship earlier so this might be a little repeat if anyone has read it.

Throughout my college career I have made friends. Some friends left and went on to other schools and some stayed. I have made new friends as the years went on and hope to stay friends with them long after graduation. Some I can’t wait to get away from once I graduate.

Besides my college friends, I have friends back in Jersey. I call them my Forever 21 Friends. They made work this past summer bearable and I don’t know what I would have done without them.

But the main point of this friendship section of the blog is about moving on from friendships that I thought was going to last but it is time to be realistic. I am realizing I am not important to certain people anymore, which is fine because friends grow apart. The part that hurts the most is being considered a friend only when that person wants to be friends. Thinking you were best friends with someone when they never put the effort to spend time with you and rather hang out with other people who they ditched when they had a boyfriend. It hurts but I think doing the right thing is the hardest. So when 2015 hits, I am saying goodbye. Unfriend, unfollow and it would be like we were never friends but the truth is it has felt like that for awhile now anyway.

Internship

This past semester has been rough with both my bosses leaving. It has been stressful as well but I guess that is what the real world is going to be like. The past year and a half I have learned so much and I am excited to to take what I have learned out into the real world. I have one semester left and I am excited to see what I will learn and do.

Along with learning a lot, I have also made friends. Last year I made some great friends and they made spending hours filming boring women’s basketball games fun.

Towards the end of last year I made a new friend. It sucks that we became friends so late in our college career but knowing we are friends now means I can end my college career with a great new friend.

Classes

I think what I am most excited to only have one semester left is I never have to sit in a classroom again. I just can’t sit and listen to a professor talk and assign useless work when I learn more at my internship than sitting in a classroom.

Overall

Well I have one semester left of my college career and all the future will tell what next semester will bring. Pretty soon I will be applying for a big girl job and having to live on my own. It is kind of scary but I have another semester of college to help me prepare for it.

Goodbye Nick Markakis!

Like I said before in my first blog, I am a huge Baltimore Orioles fan. The offseason is all hard for me because one, there is no baseball and two, players that I have grown to love and have felt like family either get traded or sign with another team.

Recently the Orioles have lost two players. One was Nelson Cruz. I am only going to say little about Cruz because he was only on the team for one season but he is still gonna be missed. He signed with the Seattle Mariners.

Now the second player is Nick Markakis. Yesterday he signed a 4-year contract with the Atlanta Braves. Nick was with the Orioles for so long and he felt like family. I know it sounds weird calling him family but when you watch as many games as I do and put so much love into the team, they feel like family to me.

I am going to miss Nick a lot. He was the last person that was connected to Brian Roberts who was my favorite player.

Nick Markakis was a great player and I am truly going to miss him as a person and a player.

I am mad at the Orioles as well. I might not know the whole story about why he signed with the Braves and not the Orioles but for now I am upset and mad.

THANK YOU NICK MARKAKIS.

Understand that life is not a straight line. Life is not a set timeline of milestones. It is okay if you don’t finish school, get married, find a job that supports you, have a family, make money, and live comfortably all by this age, or that age. It’s okay if you do, as long as you understand that if you’re not married by 25, or a Vice President by 30 — or even happy, for that matter — the world isn’t going to condemn you. You are allowed to backtrack. You are allowed to figure out what inspires you. You are allowed time, and I think we often forget that. We choose a program right out of high school because the proper thing to do is to go straight to University. We choose a job right out of University, even if we didn’t love our program, because we just…
