Operation Finish Line


“We only have five months left before we leave the warm and comforting bosom of this university and face the bitterly cold shoulder of the real world.”
-Paris Geller

You know that episode in Gilmore Girls where Paris creates all of these charts full of things Rory and Paris need to get done before they graduate? Well, I can’t say I haven’t been a bit excited to finally get to that point in my college experience. To be fair, I still have a year left. However, the heaviest part of the recruiting season happens during fall semester so I thought why not start now? Therefore, I’ve decided to start my own Operation Finish Line.

I didn’t need to think for long to start coming up with things I must get done before April comes around. The list includes a little bit of everything: things all students must do while in college, job hunting, academic events, and a lot of random things I’ve wanted  to do for the longest time but never made the time to actually do them. Yep, I’m the QUEEN of procrastination 👸🏻.

The upcoming year is definitely going to be a busy one. First of all, I need to figure out a way I can fit the remainder of my required classes in two semesters so that I can be outta here come April (hello 18 credits! 🙋🏻). Did I mention I tend to procrastinate? Then, there is the whole graduation process and application, the international requirements and applications that go along with graduating/getting a job, job applications, actually getting a job, certifications… and that’s on top of my par-time job, calling, and a feeble attempt to have a social life. On the upside, my planner and I will be closer than we’ve ever been before 🙂

Daunting does not begin to encompass how I feel about the upcoming year. But I do feel that there is no point in overwhelming myself with the vastness of things I need to get done. I just have to put one foot in front of the other. After all, that’s how I’ve managed to get here. One foot in front of the other…
