I’ve decided to start a new blog series called Thursday Thoughts. I doubt I will do it every Thursday, but I liked the alliteration. On to my first series post!:
I have this weird feeling. It’s hard to explain – almost like a mix between sadness, nervousness, excitement, and butterflies. Weird, no? I finally realized that it is the same feeling I used to get on the first day of school – especially the first week of college freshman year. I moved down to school a week early because I went through rush. It was an okay experience and while I was picked by a sorority, I immediately dropped out the next day. It wasn’t my thing. While I could have met a ton of people instantly in a sorority I had to be true to myself, you know? The next week was the official first week of school, so everyone was down there. I was getting to know my roommates, meeting friends of friends, and figuring out my way around campus. Being in a new location surrounded by a bunch of people I didn’t know was very intimidating, and I think that is exactly how I feel now.
I have a completely new slate – no boyfriend, no friends, no job, no apartment, and a new laptop ;o) I can make life into whatever I want it to be, right? While it is an awesome feeling, I must admit that it is still extremely scary. College ended up being a great experience for me. The first week was a little nerve racking, but I ended up rocking those four years – I went out, made new friends, volunteered, joined clubs, particpated in intramural sports, graduated with highest honors, traveled, recieved awards, etc. Now I just need to do that here!
I’ve been doing a lot of research on the PR/Marketing fields, and I’m glad it’s a lot of work because that is what I’m used to doing – working until 7pm with random trips to San Fran or LA? Bring it. I welcome it! Finding a job I can work hard at and maybe joining a running group or something is exactly what I need – the equivilant to starting college courses and joining clubs basically.
I’ll keep you posted on how this goes, but I am excited for whatever the future brings. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be able to do this and I’m not going to waste it.
Stay fit and fabulous,
