The Home Stretch & Salad Season

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

I’m almost there.

Thursday, I finished my last undergraduate class ever.  Possibly my last University class ever.  (We’ll see if I go to grad school. But that’s a topic / question for another day). I’m so ready to be done with school, but at the same time not.

Now, the only thing standing between me and graduation is 2 final exams and a paper.  I wish I could say I’m in full-on study mode, but motivation has been running seriously low.  Senioritis, much?  Come on, Rachel – you can do this!

I’ve done this for 4 years now (where the hell did all the time go?!), and I’ve had much harder semesters than this one.  I know I can do this.  One more week (ish) and I’m home free.

I’m all too ready for what’s next.  Working. Making a living.  Doing something that I actually enjoy, as opposed to studying for a degree that made me so stressed and unhappy at times.  I’m ready for a change.

One more week.  I know I can do this.  2 exams, 1 paper and I’m done doing Math and Physics for a while.

I can make it through the home stretch.  2 exams, 1 paper – nothing compared to what I’ve done over the past 4 years.

Are you good at staying motivated when you’re so close to being finished?

Current favorite salad combo… and GO!

[[P.S.  I may or may not be back to blog before graduation.  Who knows – I may want the stress-relief / distraction of writing, or I may just want to crash.  AHHH!]]

    Oh man, I remember those last few days of school…they were the hardest! But you can do this! There’s light at the end of the tunnel!! You’re almost there…so close you can taste the avocado! 😉

    Favorite salad combo (as of right now): greens, peas or edamame, hardboiled egg, beets, blue cheese, and candied nuts!

      Ha! If only there would be an avocado waiting for me right when I finished school 😛 That salad combo sounds delicious! I love edamame in salads.

    You’ve SO got this, girl! I had a major case of senioritis my last week (or 10) of college, so I know how challenging it is to power through. The struggle makes graduation that much sweeter, though. You’re almost there!

    I’m feeling some major salad lust after reading this post. Yum! My favorite combination right now is this: spinach, arugula, salmon (or chicken), goat cheese, raspberries, red onions, and avocado. When I’m feeling fancy, I like to drizzle a little truffle oil and mango balsamic on top!

    xoxo <3
