The REAL Real World
Yesterday the Notre Dame class of 2011 graduated.
Yesterday a younger group of people officially entered the work force.
I can no longer say “I just graduated”. I can no longer claim that I was “just in college”. My ties to the good old days are slipping farther and farther away.
Now I have to really be in the real world. I’m one of the people who can give advice to the new kids instead of only receiving it. I’m supposed to be acclimated to working life and know how to keep everything running smoothly. Over the past year, I’m supposed to have figured it out.
In some ways I do feel comfortable in my post-student life. I have a schedule. I’ve dealt with the stresses of changing friendships and relationships, asking for vacation days, and how the heck to do everything you want to and still find time to sleep at night. But in other ways I’m still that lost graduate trying to figure out my life. I’m not entirely sure what I want to do and how to turn my passions into a career. I don’t know where I want to end up permanently and I still am not used to not having a spring break.
I know I don’t have to know everything when I’m only 23. I’ll get there. I just can’t claim to be the most confused anymore. It’s a strange feeling.
Now that I’ve got the serious out of my system we can talk about Monday! I actually didn’t workout this morning because I ended up babysitting until midnight. I knew starting the week rested was more important that a gym sesh, but I’m going to try to squeeze something in this afternoon.
Also check out what I caught the little boy doing last night…
Amazing. I wasn’t even mad.

I went all of last week without a breakfast cookie so it was time to bring it back. I sprinkled cinnamon on it before the peanut flour sauce and it formed a cute little cinnamon ring:)
Off to work!
