The entire time I was in college, I was preoccupied with getting out. I wasn't really into it, but I knew that it'd be silly not to go since I had a killer scholarship and parents willing to cover the remaining balance. I busted my butt and graduated in 3.5 years, with honors and a double major, and maintained a job the entire time. I also got married halfway through and became a commuter from 30 minutes away. Fun fact? I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. Indecision's a killer, so I double majored in Speech Communication and Professional Writing. I figured that whatever I ended up doing would involve talking and writing. :) Good call.
For the record, if I were to go back and give myself advice, I would say to major in business. My majors weren't a bad call-- I definitely learned a lot and it's been useful. But business would have been far more useful in this line of work. Or accounting. But hey, my #1 goal was to NOT own my own business, so there's that.
A decade. That's how long it's been since I graduated college, and I hadn't stepped foot on the campus since my graduation! Thanks to social media keeping me in touch, it wasn't nearly as nostalgic as I thought it'd be. But it was cool to go back, see the clock tower, laugh at Josh as he got lost because all the roads changed. I did get a little misty eyed as we drove onto campus and saw my freshman dorm. The 8th floor is a long way up when the elevator is broken (like it was the day I moved in!).
