A Year Older; A Month Left
On Friday, I celebrated my 22nd birthday! My roommates surprised me when I got back from work late Thursday night with 22 cupcakes and a basket full of goodies and a new scarf. It was so sweet of them.
The rest of my Friday was spent in Indianapolis at a Writing Center conference with a few others tutors and our director. We had the opportunity to attend but also present a study we did on the effectiveness of the Writing Center. It was a really interesting conference and I took a lot out of it, a lot of new ideas and practical steps I can take as a tutor to improve my own session. But, nonetheless, I celebrated my birthday with some pretty awesome people. They took me out to dinner at TGIF and then we went back to the hotel and played some intense card games (well, they were only intense because I was playing. I’m too competitive). Overall, my birthday was a blast, though it was spent differently than past years.
It’s weird because I don’t feel any different, any older than I did two weeks ago. I guess that’s how birthday’s go. You just add a digit and then you are idenified as “older.” But, I don’t mind being 22. In fact, I like it better than 21 because it’s all even numbers . Anyhow, it’s time to start counting down the days until I graduate. Ican’t believe it’s April already. 27 more days…Perhaps the day I walk across the stage with a degree will be the moment I feel older or just hit with the reality that I’m on my own officially.For now, I’m taking school, church, life, etc one day at a time. In this next month there’s a lot to do, but also a lot to celebrate (besides birthday’s).
I’m a year older and there’s a month left of school!!! Let the countdown begin…
