Last Month of Senior Year Feels: As Told by Amy Schumer

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Scranton chapter.

Amy Schumer has had an amazing year; and frankly, so did the class of 2016.  Amy is never afraid to say what’s on her mind, therefore, it’s no surprise that some of her quotes relate seamlessly with how we feel during this confusing, sad, and exciting time in our lives.  The last month of our four years is slowly approaching, and I’m not sure if we actually know exactly what we’re supposed to be feeling…

1. “Don’t feel bad for me. I think I’m, like, so pretty.”
So four years have passed, and your family is still asking you “So, do you have a boyfriend yet?”  Hey, who knows what can happen in a month!  But don’t feel too bad; make sure you enjoy these last few weeks with all of your really pretty best friends. 

2. “Can’t I just do nothing?”
Senioritis is real and it is upon us.  Now that the sun is actually shining in Scranton and temperatures are not below 50 degrees at night, motivation to do much of anything is at an all time low.  It’s perfectly OK to do nothing, but pick and choose when you use your last skip for your 100 level English class to go to happy hour instead.

3. “I like to be draped in sweatpants.”
Leave it to the younger grades to wear the tight skirts and crop tops.  This last month is about fun and friendship, not tight and bright outfits.  Drinking on a Sunday night around a bonfire in sweats and no make up just might be the best night you’ll have had this whole semester. 

4. “Even on my worst day when I’m feeling awful, I smile and say, ‘You’re doing the best you can. Good job, bitch!”
Some people are getting jobs, some are going on to graduate school, and some people have no idea what they’re doing!  Graduating from college is a huge transition, and it’s also a step closer to being an actual human/adult.  But, enjoy the time you have left to be a careless college student, and remember that everything happens for a reason.  I promise you will end up exactly where you’re supposed to be, and you’ll be happy as hell wherever that is.

5. “The moments that make life worth living are when things are at their worst and you find a way to laugh.”
Not to say that life is at its worst right now, but I think I can speak for all of us when I say that we don’t want to leave this place we call home.  Take this time to look back on all of the ups and downs that you’ve experienced these last four years, and now step back and appreciate the second family you’ve gained.  Make the most of the moments you have left here, and never forget, you’re always a Royal.
