Song of the Day: Boilermaker - Norman
I'm just going through the motions now. I've had several farewell dinner/lunches the past few days. It's like when the girlfriend returns a box full of clothes and old photos. Kind of awkward but no one is fooling themselves because everyone knows what the other is thinking. It hit me pretty hard last night when I suddenly realized that I have no agenda. There's no wind to pick up my sail. Totally not what I expected heading into my last year of undergrad. I was expecting a drunken haze and somehow I'd wake up and I am 18 again, living at home and mom is yelling for you to come down for dinner.
I think many feel ripped off by the education system, but I have much to be thankful for. I don't think I could have asked for anything else. The lasting memories and great friendships I've made throughout these past years will never be forgotten. No matter how high or low, I will forever cherish these times. Maybe I could prolong the magic in grad school when that comes about.
"So where do you see yourself in 5 years?" - The title was adapted from a great bag that has taken permanent hiatus. It's really too bad. Anyways, have you ever remembered a dream? A dream that was so detailed that you could exactly describe the setting and how everything unfolded but the ending was always a blur? Well, what I've always dreamt, ended just now. For the longest time, completion of my undergraduate degree was my ultimate milestone. But what's next? Is everything over now, or even downhill? This dream since grade school has been prophesized. So what next? I can't wait to have a nice sleep and maybe I'll see what is to come of the next five, ten or even twenty years.
Anyways, kegger at my place tonight. I'll post pictures. Cheers.
