Class Of....

I don't know how to finish the title of this blog post because, well, I'm not entirely sure what I'm considered! Technically, following the typical standards, I am in my last semester of my junior year and would be the class of 2017. But, as of a few weeks ago, I discovered that something I've been anticipating since last year is actually going to happen. I mean, I still have to register for my classes...but still. I guess as of March first, all of this will be real.

I'm not sure whether or not I've talked about this before. Sometimes I avoid the topic because I didn't want to say it incase it didn't happen, but I'm pretty darn stoked about it and now that I've seen the course schedule for fall 2016. ANYWAYS, the whole point of this post is that I'm on my way to graduating in December of 2016! I don't know how it happened or what I did to my schedule where I was able to pull this off, but I have! I still have a week until I register for classes, but I have to take my three final classes for my major and then take two random classes to fill up my schedule so I can keep my scholarship. I wish I didn't have to take those other two classes, but alas, I am not an Ohio resident and therefore do not want to pay for out of state tuition. The price you have to pay for scholarships (how ironic...) *sigh*

This is such a relief, honestly. I'm staying in Cleveland until summer of 2017 just because of leases and so I can stay with my friends while they finish up school, but I'll be walking across that stage in December proudly! I'm not going to lie, I'm really proud of myself for getting out of here a semester early. College is a weird, weird place. It's amazing how people can graduate in three years, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with being in college for longer. I think the idea of a four-year graduation track as the norm is a bit ridiculous. Everyone works at their own pace, everyone has their own things going on in life. There's nothing wrong with getting out early, just as there's nothing wrong for being in school for five, six, seven years of undergrad. It's nothing to be embarrassed about or ashamed of. Anyone who can balance their academic careers with full-time jobs or other responsibilities to me are so amazing and admirable.

So, shoutout to my college credits from high school for giving me a semester worth of credits and shoutout to myself for scheduling all of my classes by myself and not trusting computers or advising offices to do it for me. I guess I should start thinking of how I'm going to decorate my cap...oh who am I kidding, I'm putting glitter on it.
