Wow! That title is incredibly cliche. And if you know anything about me, it is that I HATE cliches. Forgive me for the unoriginal blog title.
But it accurately describes what I've done today. Yesterday was my nineteenth birthday. Tomorrow, I'm heading back to Marquette for my second semester of college.
I'm so excited to be back on campus. To see my new friends that I've been missing for the past month. But at the same time, I like being home. It's easy. It makes me feel like I'm back in high school and have several years to figure out the rest of my life. College has really made me realize how fast life is moving (Oh my gosh, another cliche!). I've only got three and a half years left until I enter the workforce. And three and a half years may sound like a long time, but it's not.
Turning nineteen was my last "teen" birthday. Next year, I will be telling people that I am in my twenties! I've dreamt for so long about growing up and being independent, but I like the dream version of my twenties.
What will my actual twenties be like? I'll probably be working or in law school. Most definitely broke. Surviving on Ramen. Quite possibly in a different state, far from my sister and parents. So many changes in the next few years.
No, so many changes starting tomorrow! I'm moving back to a different zip code. Different activities (no more Grey's marathons). Different faces. I'll even be starting my new campus job as a barista at Tory Hill, the law school cafe.
It all starts tomorrow. Which leaves plenty of time for one last night at Seattle Grace Hospital.
