Seniors gear up for final stretch

So it’s after Spring Break. All of the partying, questionable decisions, sunburns and the majority of our savings are all a week behind us. Now it’s time to buckle down. Time to sit and make about a thousand different lists of things you need to do for each class, graduation preparation, current employment and job hunting. Everything is so close you can taste it, but not close enough that you are worry free.


Although the semester is coming to an abrupt end, there’s still room for error. Something could go terribly wrong and put all of your plans at a standstill for another semester, opening up the disastrous opportunity to go through all of this stress all over again.


That being said, get it together seniors! Just a few more weeks and we will have degrees, something that no one can ever take away from us. It’s the gateway to the rest of our lives. Every big thing that happens to us past this point, excluding the possibility of marriage and children, will have something to do with this degree.


Gratefully enough, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. All we have to do is hammer all of this stuff we don’t want to do now, so that we can be free to do what we want right after graduation. After this it’s all a choice, either grad school, work force, traveling or sitting on your mom’s couch stuffing your face with Little Debbie’s and binge watching Netflix. But for now, operation graduation is in full force. So, here’s to it!
