How I Spent My First Day of Freedom

Wednesday, December 14, 2016


Did I nearly forget to write a post today or was it my plan all along to post later in the day detailing my first day of freedom? The world may never know. Even though that sentence truly just revealed the answer, regardless of its attempt at ambiguity.

Big news: I took my last exam ever today as an undergraduate. This was my last ever "assignment" of college, meaning that as of about 8:40 this morning, I was finished with college forever. Granted, I graduate on Sunday, but still. No more assignments. No more notes. No more studying. Nothing. Nada. Zip. Zilch. I'm a free b!tch, baby! Since I had nearly the entire day of doing absolutely nothing, I decided to log my whole day as a free almost college graduate. This post shall become proof as to why I should not be allowed to have any time off whatsoever.

9:00 a.m.: Post Instagram of Cleveland State's Rhodes Tower. Add caption in all caps about how excited you are that you finished college. Post similar messages all across social media outlets just so nobody missed the fact that you FINISHED EARLY. Bragging? For sure.

9:20 to 10:45 a.m.: After a hearty breakfast of carbs on more carbs (bagels and hash browns, because I can) and coffee, lay down for over an hour. Watch Youtube videos. Veg. Lounge. Do what you haven't been able to do all semester. Occasionally shift body to ensure blood flow.

11:00 a.m.: Watch last night's finale of The Voice with roommate. Drool over Brendan Fletcher every time he's on screen. Fast forward through irrelevant performances. Yell at the TV when the winner is revealed because IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN BILLY.

12:30 p.m. (approximately): Get so hyper that you decided that you need to jump over the back of your chair in the living room. Wait for roommates to record it for Snapchat. Realize that it wasn't nearly as hard as you thought, leading to a really, really lame snap.

1:00 p.m. and onwards: Lay down. Get up for food. Write some e-mails for work. Lay down. Get more food and water. Dance a little. Take on and off Ugg moccasins a dozen times. Break a hair tie redoing your bun one thousand times.

8:30 p.m.: Make tea. Realize you spent your whole day doing nothing. Also realize that it's probably been your best day all semester. Smile.

And here we are at almost nine at night and I don't know if I've ever had a more relaxing day. It truly feels amazing to be finished with college. I've learned so much and I cannot wait to talk about my college experience over the course of the next few weeks and even months, especially about how it feels to be out of college when I'm still living in a collegiate atmosphere. I think it'll be interesting. But I for one am excited! Mostly for all of the sleep I'll hopefully get!
