What Would You Do…?
Good afternoon! :) How has your week been? Mine is dragging a little, but I have so many fun things on my agenda for the next few days that I think it will turn around! Tomorrow night, The Band Perry is coming to my school (!!!) and my friends and I are excited for one last college concert together.
Speaking of “lasts”……there are only 15 days left of college so I have a feeling everything is going to be a “last” pretty soon.
Last college weekend.
Last night downtown.
Last study session in the library.
Last spontaneous froyo trip (which will likely be followed by “okay now THIS is the last time for real”)
Last drive out to Lake Mary.
Last college sports game as a student (the Spring Football game this weekend, yay!)
Last paper/presentation/lecture/exam/homework/quiz EVER.
Last (hopefully) time I have to coordinate a group project assignment at the midnight hour.
Last opportunity to blame being a “broke college student” for my mismatched dish collection or cheerios-for-dinner nights (which actually has nothing to do with being broke, I just like Cheerios.)
Last time ever living with roommates (my next roommate will be my future husband I hope! haha)
Laaaaaaaaast chance to change my major? Just kidding ;)
SO this brings me to my very important question for you. Right now I am in such a unique situation that leaves such so much opportunity open to take advantage of. I am leaving this town for good. I am moving to another state. I will likely not see 99.73% of my peers from here again. It feels like I just have to do something wild/silly/ridiculous/spontaneous (the fact that I’m asking for help negates the spontaneity here, I understand)/embarrassing/memorable*.
*Fine print: NO tattoos, illegal activities, or permanent alterations to the body please. ;)
So what would you do!? Tell that boy how you’ve been crushing on him for a solid two months? Carve your initials somewhere? Finally stand up to that loud-mouth diva and say what everyone’s been thinking? Wear the outfit you’ve had in your closet for two years but always been too self-conscious to wear?
I was talking about this with a friend and we struggled to come up with two ideas. One is semi-legitimate and the other is just sad. First, I would sing karaoke downtown. I know this isn’t super embarrassing, but you’ve not heard me sing. Right before I leave town would probably be the most appropriate time for this particular night out ;) And the second is wear ponytails/messy buns in public. Yep, I blow dry, straighten, or curl my hair every single day that I leave my apartment or see people other than my roommates or family. My poor, poor split ends. I just don’t feel comfortable wearing up-do’s (unless I’m working out) so when I have just 15 days left, I am more likely to care less about my appearance. (Not so much less that I’ll consider wearing leggings as pants or slippers to class though…..don’t be ridiculous ;) )
CLEARLY I need some guidance in the “final days of college” department. I mean I already have some pretty spectacular college memories but now it’s time to go out with a BANG :)

Gosh. I can’t believe you are ready to graduate. It went by so fast. I have enjoyed seeing your college adventures. You are an amazing young lady who I have no doubt will be successful in anything you do. Enjoy your last adventures at school. 😃
Girrrrrl you have shared so many shenanigans already, I’m sure you’ll think of something! But I can’t wait to see what’s next for you :)
Oh boy so many suggestions and yet such limitations. LOL You should definitely do the Karaoke in town because that will be a memory that will stay with you forever. I recently found your blog and I just love it. Keep up the great and informative posts.
I vote karaoke myself. It’s both scary and exhilarating. Keep us posted on what you choose.
I’ve given this a lot of thought……………and I think you should dawn some NAU Louie the Lumberjack flannel, possibly an NAU hat (would require that ponytail), some rugged boots and hit up the Karaoke. You MUST have someone video this once in a lifetime event though. Double or nothing?: After Karaoke, you could jump on the Amtrak for one last 10 hour hurrah ride home. I know how much you loved those train rides! Hahaha Whatever you choose to do to leave your mark will be perfect. You had an AMAZINGLY successful 4 years and created more memories than any one. So m any congrats to you Kenzie!!! xoxo
