I just got back from my school late last night. I left Tuesday afternoon to go up, went out a bit with friends to celebrate my birthday, ran some errands on Wednesday morning, got lunch with my cousin, went to my internship seminar class, hung out with some friends, and then left for the two-hour trip back home.
I cried 5 times yesterday because of how much I miss my professors and classes, as well as my friends. Luckily, my choice to complete school early and graduate in December, and stay home to do my internship feels right. I feel more concentrated at home.
Still, the first time I walked into the building of where I had most of my classes, I began to cry. I’ve spent so many hours there, learning, creating, and envisioning what my life can be like in the future. I had to spend a couple of minutes in the bathroom to compose myself. I then went and saw my adviser. She is a great lady and told me how proud she was to see me succeed. She convinced me that i should walk at the graduation ceremony in the spring. I began to cry again.
On top of seeing her, I also saw one of the professors I’ve worked a lot with. The adviser for the club I was president of last year. I could only chat with him for a few minutes, but it was nice to see him. I mentioned to him how I kept tearing up and said that I had loved all my classes here. He made a comment that I said that in the past tense. It was an emotional day.
Seeing all my friends was hard too. They’re the people I saw everyday for the 3 years I was up at school. They even said it feels different without me there. At least my school isn’t so far away that I cannot visit from time to time. And I have to go up once a month for a class, anyway, so that excuse is a nice one.
Love this picture we took on Thursday night from our Keynote Speaker event! Communication and Media Week went so great and I’m so happy everything worked out smooth! Maybe next year I’ll be able to come back and this time be a part of the Alumni Panel!
Skip to just before 11 minutes for the speech to start. My club, the Communication and Media Society just wrapped up our annual week dedicated to communication and media. Tonight was our keynote speaker night, and we were able to have such an amazing, incredible speaker! You wouldn’t know culture as it is today without this man. He was the first director of MTV, and is the television producer behind many of my favorite childhood TV shows: Powerpuff Girls, Dexter’s Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, Fairly Odd Parents, Adventure Time, etc.
His speech was fantastic and incredibly insightful. I would say more but I’m very tired. Enjoy! It starts around the 10:55 mark and yes I do speak too!
As promised and this time on time, here is my club, the Communication and Media Society’s final cut of our PSA for the Bring Suicide Out of the Darkness club. Which I’m on the e-board for as the Advertising Chair. Love how this came out. Make it viral!
I forgot to post this! This PSA for our school’s Relay for Life was made by my club the Communication and Media Society. So proud of how it came out! I was reminded to post this because we filmed our second PSA for the Bring Suicide Out of the Darkness Club today (which I’m an e-board member of as well). That will be up sometime within the next few days. Take a look!
