Saturday, January 7, 2012


My oh my, where has this week gone? I've got to start packing up and heading back to real life on Sunday. The end of breaks always give me a weird feeling. It's hard to be happy to leave home but also excited to go back to real life. Coming home is like slipping back into the past. I get all the perks of being a kid without the responsibilities I once had while living here. I get to enjoy sleeping in, eating my mom's cooking, watching re-runs of old teen dramas I used to follow, and hang out with all of my old friends. It's like living the dream until reality sets in and realize that I didn't actually step back in time or stop time for that matter. The world is still going on, I'm in the middle of a trimester, I have ongoing responsibilities in RI, and my friends have lives here as well.

The feelings are extra weird this time around because I don't know when I will be back home. It could be after graduation, or it could be a year from now. It's funny how I've spent my entire life wanting to be an adult and thinking I'm an adult, but the sooner that becomes reality, I all of a sudden get the Peter Pan syndrome I never had.

Nevertheless, the show must go on.

2011 Highlights

Facebook timeline has made it really easy for me to look back at this past year and reflect. 2011 was an incredible year. Sometimes I get so focused on the present that I forget to appreciate the past.

Highlights from 2011 (in no particular order):

  • Really formed those "life-long friendships you make in college"
  • JWU Ad Team #3 in the country
  • Re-branding UIB 
  • Traveled to LA with the Special Events Society
  • Spent a week in Stockholm, Sweden and worked with the incredible talent at Berghs School of Communication
  • WaterFire Providence

My new years resolution is to start blogging again. I miss it, but I find it more and more intimidating to report on my life, especially when times are actually eventful. For the past week I have been home in Oklahoma for the holidays and it occurred to me that is my very last Christmas break forever. Sure, I'll have a few days off but I won't have a full 2 weeks off and have very minimal responsibility. I have been taking advantage, spending my days watching old television shows on DVD and Netflix as well as spending time with old friends. 

2012 is a very exciting year of my life. Exciting because for the first time I am entering a year without any certainty of where I will be standing this time next year or 6 months from now. Of course, we never know what life will throw at us from day to day but usually you have at least an idea of how things will be. 2012 will be the year that I graduate college, start a career, and start a new life. And the rest is still up in the air. I feel pressure from society and more so the adults in my life when they ask me "So do you have anything lined up after graduation?" No I don't have anything lined up yet. And should I be panicking just yet? It's January. There are some days when I get that question to where I am just trying to take care of what I need to take care of for that day. Sure, it would be comforting to have job security 6 months ahead of time, but what's the fun in that? I like the excitement of not knowing where I will be packing up and moving at the beginning of June. It may be across the country or it could be across town, who knows. Stay tuned.
