These photos are untouched because it’s a Friday night and it has been a long week so I just don’t even have the energy to begin editing them, but we have something important to say. It has been FOUR years since I graduated from college! Dom shared a group photo of us this morning and it was so nostalgic to see. Sometimes, it really is true what they say that college is the best four years of your life, but in no way shape or form do I feel the need to go back. There were some incredibly challenging moments, but I made connections with people that are very much my lifelong friends still.
The morning of graduation, a bunch of us decided to head over to someone’s apartment for a mimosa party. A lot of mimosas. I didn’t even know the person that lived at the apartment, really, and I still don’t know who that person is, but my friends were there so that’s all that mattered. We had all just gone out the night before, but graduation is long and sometimes you need a little pep in your step as you’re walking across the stage. These photos are really funny for me to look back on especially this top one because it’s totally my “I’m ready to graduate!” pose and it’s ridiculously annoying.
If you would’ve asked me back then if I ever saw myself leaving Seattle, I probably would’ve just said “nahh.”
