Inside Kimmy's Mind » Stressin’

Stressin’

Life is hectic at the moment. Any free time I’ve managed to come across has been mainly for people or for some pass-out-on-the-couch-me-time. School is coming to an end…for the semester any way and summer classes start up soon right after. Graduation is also upon me. Sadly, my hurdles are far from done and I must move fast.

My plan is to graduate Fall 2015. -.- It sounds amazing whenever I hear myself say it, it sounded amazing to hear my counselor say it. But in order to graduate in the Fall, I must finish up a core requirement. And that is…a foreign language. I took Spanish 1501 almost two years ago, so now in order to take 1502, I must take a test. If I don’t meet the requirements, then that means I have to take 1501…AGAIN. Thankfully, Spanish 2301 and 2302 are now offered as an intensive class n the fall. So, provided I make it into the right class this summer, I can take 2610 in the fall and get credit for the remaining Spanish courses I need.

Along with that nightmare, final projects and tests have just been a huge pain in the ass and now I have to worry about this test before summer classes start. Not to mention worrying about financial aid as well. I just want to graduate! Then I’ll be worrying about a completely different list of things. Such as, where am I going to work? I need money, I need benefits, I need stability and the ability to financially support myself without the help of my parents.  A lot to focus on at the moment and I’m just dreading the next couple of months. However, I’m insanely excited about the thought of graduating. Frankly, I’d rather not do the whole cap and gown charade but my parents have made it clear that they will see me walk. My mom just gave me this look so it’s safe to say that I don’t really have a choice. But that’s the least of my worries, I just want to get to the point where I can officially graduate and get out of school. I’m tired of grades, and tests. Granted, I know you are somewhat graded and tested once in a career. But at least you’re getting paid for that “grade”.

Classes are blah, I’m taking a Creative/Copy Writing course this semester along with a Media Planning one. I’m not sure if I’m fitted for either though, but every time I feel discourage and think I did an assignment incorrectly, I’m surprised because I end up getting great feedback. Which is encouraging, but man are these classes a challenge. I only have two weeks left so let’s do this! And since this entry is pretty heavy, I’ll close with a pretty instagram photo of this Motto Journal I bought from Paper Source. I’ve been using it for only positive thoughts, mine says Hello Beautiful Day and it’s a mint/teal-ish color. I love it. It’s acts as a reminder to see the silver lining even when you can’t focus on it. Take a look at the different colors, do you see any that speak to you? I’m eying the Blue one that says, On to the Next Adventure. That’s all for now, until next time…

Thanks for reading and commenting.

    I’m right there with you!! I have to take the test to get into the last Italian class (I think its advanced Italian?) and I the last time I took the class was 2 years ago! I’m dreading having to take that test 🙁 but this summer I’m going to try and study my ass off with the old material that I have and ace that test whenever I take it!
    Just breathe Kimmy! I have been having to remind myself to take a moment and not stress out too much. It’s been really tough but at least you see the finish line at the end! You’re almost there 😀
    I love you Kimmy! Please don’t freak out too much. You and I have been freaking out about the same things. But I know when we look back on this moment in a couple years we are going to laugh about us flipping out as much as we did.
    xoxo

    @Melissa, I’m just ready for this semester to be over. But yes, I’m dreading this test, I’m hoping they give me some type of study guide just so I know what to focus on. I mean, I might have a vague idea about what might be on the test but I’d still rather have something more concrete. BLAH!!!
    Ok, I’ll do my best to breathe, good luck to you as well. Let’s both make it! We are almost done!!! <3<3<3
