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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
