I’m pumped for this last semester. Here’s what I have to expect: 13.5 credits (the lowest I’ve ever had), a spring break trip to Cancun in March, and a backpacking trip in Europe after I graduate. Life’s looking pretty good for me currently. Don’t get me wrong, there’s still plenty of work to be done. I have a couple difficult classes to pass (with some easier ones tossed in) and a senior project to complete.

The one thing I’m a little concerned about is finding a job in the fields I want to work in, prosthetics and exoskeletons. They’re relatively small in terms of engineering careers. The one thing I know I’m going to miss is being able to see my friends whenever I want as I plan on moving somewhere new (hopefully Colorado) where I’ll be pretty far away from any of them. That being said, I’m going to live it up with them while I canImage from: https://giphy.com/gifs/90s-cartoons-missionhill-QWlD0s3SXP0c



The past four (well, five-ish) years have been simultaneously the longest yet shortest time of my life. It blew past me as well as taking forever. So, on one hand I feel so entirely ready to graduate, but, at the same time, I’ll miss this moment in time. I know that life will start to hit, but I’m also ready to be hit by reality. That being said, Behrend has served me well and I feel entirely blessed to have been a part of the organizations I’ve been in and the people I’ve met along the way.

I truly feel like I am a completely different person than who I was when I moved into my dorm in August of 2015. (I also have so much to do this semester I’m ready to get past all of the work- and anxiety-of the upcoming months.) Regardless, I know that this is my last little moment in my undergrad years. I feel like this is the time you think about when you reference “college” stories

I’ve definitely been taking more mental snapshots of specific moments to really live in the feeling that I had at that moment and, more specifically, the people I was with. It’s a bittersweet ending, and I feel like I’m very ready for it- Only a few months left.
