my last first day of school


Today was my first day of my last year of school.
But more importantly, you may see something missing in these photos...

I GOT MY CAST OFF!
I went in for an x-ray appointment yesterday and the doctor said it was ready to come off right then--I about died of excitement. The fracture is still a bit there, my arm is stiff and sore, and I have to wear a wrist brace for a few more weeks (which I took off for these photos, don't tell my doctor), but I am so so happy! I can wear all my clothes again! and take normal showers! I feel like myself again, and I'm so relieved. Just in time for classes to start, and this quarter is going to be a doozy--but it's my last year, so I plan on appreciating every second. My first day was started off with a walk to our downtown Starbucks with my roommate...a cinnamon dulce latte and a warm morning bun are the best way to start a new quarter (not to mention adjusting to waking up before 10am).

How are your classes? Or if you're graduated, do you miss having a first day of school?

romper: Forever 21 (my sister's), jacket: Thrifted, shoes: Urban Outfitters, bag: TJ Maxx

i graduated in may of '10, so this is my second fall without a first day of school. let me tell you.. it is amazing. seriously, i love being finished with school. yeah, working full-time kinda sucks, but i'm living on my own, making my own life-choices, without the stress of classes, exams, and practicums to weigh me down. don't get me wrong, i loved college and i really miss having my friends all in one place (there is a post-grad diaspora that really effing sucks) but overall, life is pretty sweet. good luck with your last year!

I graduated undergrad in 07 and grad school a year later. I only miss it in the fall, during football season when all the kids are talking about going back and seeing their friends again and sleeping in. The good news is that life on the other side of school is stressful but just as sweet.

But ENJOY IT while it lasts!!! I think every day about what I'd do differently (thankfully, not much). It's such an amazing time in your life, and you'll never sleep more again.

Ok, getting down from my high horse now. :)

I am no longer in school, but I miss picking out my first day outfit and getting those little butterflies in my stomach - but being excited to see all of the familiar faces :)
