Class of 2009!

It does feel amazing to know that I am really done with college. No more busy work or dealing with professors who just dont get it. I graduated from Cal State Fullerton yesterday morning. After an early morning meeting time, I met up with my friends from PRSSA which is Public Relations Student Society of America. Getting involved in that club was a great decision that allowed me to get involved on campus and make friends at school. Although making friends is not a difficult task for me it was weird being at a campus where so many people just came for thier classes and left. Anyways, graduation was so fun and I am really glad that I decided to walk. It was nice to say goodbye to friends and even catch up with old friends. And surprise surprise my day was filled with smiles, flowers ( i got a flowers and my mom arranged flowers for my party!) and a beautiful day of sunshine!

One day when I learn how to put pictures up here I will upload some from graduation. After my graduation I had a little BBQ open house thing and a lot of my friends and family were able to make it. Overall, graduation was an amazing experience although I did lose my voice last night. SO thank you to everyone who has spoked uplifting words of encouragement, listened to me vent about my busy crazy life and loved me with all my weaknesses. Thank you thank you! I love you all!

1 week left

I am embarking on an exciting adventure. In less than 1 week I will be graduating from Cal State Fullerton, and I am finally beginning to feel some anticipation and anxiousness. Now what am I going to stress over and freak out about! Maybe my singleness? ha ha

So, I was hoping that this blog would be a "happy, inspirational, positive blog" but at this moment I am a little over it. Let me explain. I have 22 days until I graduate from CSUF and when people ask me if I am excited I sort of lie and say oh yes!
Honestly, between my 2 part time jobs, an internship, the Public Relations Club, family, church and life I haven't had a chance to really think about it. I know you are thinking well you did it to yourself Emily, getting involved in so much. This I know!

My question is how do I stop myself from repeating this after I graduate. I believe that being involved has given me some great opportunities and opened professional doors, but is that what really matters in life.

When I am done with school I think some evaluations will be necessary. In the eternal scheme of things, will I remember all the networking experiences I had or will I remember the joy I felt watching Savy Jaye smile at me when I was not paying attention. So I guess growing up doesn't mean you forget the fairy tale life you believed in as a child but you pay attention to the moments that make you feel like your alive.

For me, it is usually seeing the beauty of flowers or colors in nature, seeing someone smile at a random stranger or feeling the sunshine but today its opportunity to make the best of my day. Quality of life is just a matter of perspective!
