Life Since September

It's the holiday season and about time. I'm now in a sweet-spot, so to speak, of the semester. I'm still in college but almost graduated, working in my field, but not with too many responsibilities, and I'm almost done with teaching karate. I'm going to miss college, a lot really. Not so much the classes or the teachers (there are only a few teachers that I actually respect and will really miss), definitely not the homework or tests, but I'm going to miss spending as much time with my friends as I've become accustomed to.

I know what working 40+ hours a week does to your social life, thanks to camp, and I know how hard it is for me to get together with some of my friends as it is, so I know my social calendar will pretty much die and I'll be living for the weekends. Also, my friends will be moving back to their houses (some across the U.S. :( ) and won't be in that central location anymore, making it that much more difficult to see each other.

I realize that this is all part of getting older and graduating and all that, but it still makes me sad. I spent two and a half years of my life with these people, for hours and hours at a time in some cases, we've endured the same horrible professors and difficult tests, been on those long shoots, auditioned for and gone to plays/movies/dinner together, helped each other with homework, partied together or in some cases just hung out and enjoyed each other's company. The mot noteworthy examples of enjoying the company of friends would be when I spent something like 2-3 hours watching wrestling with several of my guy friends. That was an interesting night!

But, I have a great internship who has said they're going to hire me for sure when I graduate and to name my price! So, I have a job lined up and Dan's got his foot in the door of a couple of different places. Wedding plans may finally be in within reach! I'm keeping my fingers crossed and sending prayers up for that! Sometimes my days are up, sometimes their down, which is how life is suppose to be: a wild ride. ;)
