SHOP THE LOOK:
I don’t feel the least bit like a college graduate, but I guess that’s how it goes; everyone seems older and wiser and then suddenly, you are them. I spent this morning looking at my grad photos taken with my bestie/roomie Nika (by the incredible Alice Gherasim) and wondering why I was so stoked to graduate. Sure, I went to class for four years in order to receive a degree so I are better qualify for a job I maybe want… but why was I so happy it’s all over!? I’m going to miss living both with and down the street from my best friends. I’ll miss the quaint charm that is Old Towne Orange. I’ll miss the spontaneity to do whatever I want just about whenever I please, the freedom that comes with little obligation and responsibility. College is a rare opportunity cushioned with excessive amounts of free time (despite how it may often feel) stimultaneiously paired with all your favorite people living very close by. You may not realize it while it’s happening, but that setup is REALLY FRICKIN COOL. If you’re lucky enough to have time left in college, be present–it goes by too quickly. And for those of you who have already graduated and find yourself staring into adulthood, paralyzed by a narrowing path of limitations and responsibilities (aka my mood rn), I present you with an old Irish blessing I’ve recently come to love: “May the best of your past be the worst of your future”.
Time to grind.
