There are so many things that I’ve been saying I want to do when I graduate. I’m getting sick of hearing myself say “When I graduate I want to _____”. I’m hoping to be able to graduate in August, though it is in the hands of whomever my future employer may be. The last class I need to take is during the day on Friday, and as excited as I am to put school behind me, I need to have a job; if, after I finish internship #3, my employer will not let me take Friday’s off for my last class, I will have to postpone my graduation date.
Anyways. I digress. Starting August, provided that I do graduate, here is a list of activities (and projects) that I hope to be able to start within the few months after graduation:
- Become a staff writer – somewhere
- Pick up my first few freelancing projects
- Take up yoga
- Work out 5x/week again
- Travel a little more (this might have to be in the year after graduation, and this is provided that I find a job after graduation)
- Write an ebook
- Go snowboarding
- Go to Oregon for the weekend
- Take a cooking class
- Take a language class (French)
- Try a new recipe every week
- Go hiking more often
- Learn to sew
- Learn more about blogging
- Create a few extra pages on my blog
- Become a Big Sister (with Big Brothers/Big Sisters)
Some of these are incredibly simple, and probably things that I could even do now while I’m in school. For instance, how hard is creating some new pages on WLGYL? Not that hard, but I have a vision in my head about what I want it to look like and I don’t want to half ass it. It will take me awhile to do it.
I could also probably go snowboarding but I can’t really sacrifice the full day that I would want to spend up on the slopes, so I’m pushing this until after graduation.
I currently do almost none of these things. I do learn a little more about blogging and blog improvement every time Andrea posts on Curiosity Killed the Blog, which is wonderful. There’s so much to learn!
I can’t wait to throw myself into things that I actually enjoy. I do enjoy school, but at this point I’m not taking any interesting courses and I feel like my time could be better spent elsewhere.
Needless to say, I’m getting more and more excited about graduation by the minute. I can’t wait for freedom.
