I’m so over school and tests and assignments and frat boys.
Even though I was under one last night. Whoops.
That was then and this is now and now I want a real guy with a real job and maybe possibly a mustache.
Am I still be allowed to graduate if I fail this exam tomorrow?
Just calculated it. As long as I make a 65, I’m good.
I need Starbucks so badly right now but I literally have $17.34 in my bank account right now.
Can I get an advance on all that graduation money I’m supposed to be getting next month?
Fuck studying, I’m getting a margarita.
SENIOR YEAR, BITCHHHH!!
I’m making it my personal mission to get drunk every day until I walk across that stage.
*Googles “can you die from getting drunk 30 days in a row?”*
TBH, I’m going to miss my college bar more than anything.
Do they have dollar beer nights in the real world?
I wonder if my little will miss me as much as I’ll miss her.
No, not possible.
And my best friends? What’s going to happen to us?
I don’t think I’ve gone a day without seeing them and/or texting them every single second of every day.
We’re all going our separate ways, but we’ll still talk all the time and visit each other, right? RIGHT?!
Oh look, another call from my mother asking if I’ve found a job yet.
Considering I just got rejected for an unpaid internship, I’m going to say no, not yet.
I literally offered to do bitch work for free and someone was like, “Nah, we’ll pass.”
I’ll have a four-year degree from a well-respected institution of higher learning and yet I’ll probably end up working as a waitress at a three-star restaurant in my hometown. Living the dream.
I’ll figure my shit out eventually, right?
People take time to figure out what they want to do after graduation. It’s completely normal and it does not make me a failure.
Living with my parents isn’t going to be that bad, either.
Free rent and free food, am I right?
I’ll save so much money!
Money that I’ll probably spend on makeup, clothes, and shoes, but whatever, I needed a new wardrobe anyway.
How did life move so fast? I swear it was just yesterday that I was a scared little freshman getting lost on campus and taking shots with chasers.
Just like that, it’s over.
No more partying. No more late night talks on the porch with my best friends. No more jungle juice. No more sorority events. No more hanging out at the house with my sisters on a Sunday afternoon talking about what happened the night before.
Maybe I should just fail this exam tomorrow so I can stay in school longer.
I’m not ready.
I don’t want to do this.
I want to press the reset button on this whole thing.
I don’t want to do it differently, I want to do it over again.
The best four years of my life are over. What am I supposed to look forward to now?
I don’t want to graduate. I want to stay in school forever..
