In just a few days, this Friday to be exact, I will graduate college! I am so relieved and excited to have graduated in four years, however it's bittersweet. I have made some great friends here at school and leaving them behind will be difficult. Although it's all very scary too because my life is about to make some drastic changes. I will be on my own for quite some time, something I am only half way used to. Most of my friends are gearing up for the real world. My room mate is moving to San Diego with her boyfriend, another friend is working for the capitol, others are venturing off to Atlanta, GA. When anyone asks me what my post-graduation plans are, I simply reply I'm moving to Alaska. I'd have to say the most common response I have received, is "That is so the most random thing I've heard." Although, to many I'm sure that does seem true, but I find it exhilarating that I will be in such a beautiful place, and not stuck in a cubicle staring at a computer screen. Some just don't understand the joy in that. It's a little funny to think I will graduate college and become a waitress, but going to Alaska is just so much more than what my job is. It's about the experience I will gain and the place I will live. I am ready to leave college, and the antics that go along with it. I feel the need to be isolated for a while before I ever try to get a 'real job'. I'm graduating with a B.A. in Creative Writing. Travel will only enhance my creative mind and provide me with a much broader spectrum of which I can write. Some people think I'm crazy, and sometimes I think I am too. I just know that I am following my dreams, and that is truly what is most important in life.
