Any advice for someone graduating in 24 days?


..THERE ARE 24 DAYS UNTIL GRADUATION! $*#&(#^*)(#$()&^*$*#& is a pretty accurate description of how I am feeling right now. I cannot wait until I don’t have exams/homework/group projects, but I am sad that I will no longer be in such a great learning environment. (Not sad enough to get my MBA right away though haha). It’s so close, but still seems so far away. Plus, graduation is actually just a tease. We walk on December 6th, then my final exams run December 8-12. Its like “yay you graduated, see you Monday.” I’m thinking it will all sink in after the new year, once the holiday season is over and reality starts to bite. Because of this, I would love if you shared any words of wisdom with me that help with the college to real life transition. They would be greatly appreciated 🙂

PS. Today’s trend is leopard print (+ pattern mixing, again). As I’ve said before, there is good leopard print + bad leopard print. Try to stay away from cheap looking/all over/poorly made/unflattering leopard items. Leopard print heels are an easy way to add a little spice at the office. They add an element of fun without being overwhelming; like it would be if I wore my leopard faux fur. As much as I wish I could, sometimes you just have to draw the line.

But before you go – I would LOVE your advice on the upcoming transition in my life. 🙂

Have a terrific Thursday!

    Say whaaaat, you have to go back for finals after graduation?! How do they know if you actually passed?

    My advice is not to stress out about the future and instead to enjoy your last 24 days, you probably won’t have the kind of freedom you have now again for a long time.

    So elegant, as usual!

    As far as the advice goes…I’m looking for it myself as I have one semester left! The only way I’m managing is to enjoy each day left of student freedom, because soon I’ll be all on my own! Also, I always try to remember to breathe and remind myself that I’m smarter than I give myself credit for. If I can handle University craziness, I’m sure I can handle the world. So there’s some advice from someone in your shoes!! Congratulations 🙂
