In 2 weeks, I will officially be a graduate of Holy Cross.
Does that sound weird to you? Good. It sounds weird to me too. I just turned in my last Chaucer and Dante paper (eeek) and the signed copies of my thesis (my advisor and reader have to sign three copies: one for College Honors, another for English Honors, and another for CISS). I have my Lit Theory exam tomorrow, and then my Lit Theory paper is due on Tuesday. And then I’m finished with college.
Wait. What? I’ll be finished with college? This is really just beginning to settle into my brain now. And that’s why I’m trying to soak up everything that I can – sitting in Dinand (yes, I’m a nerd), talking with friends, eating Kimball waffles (no, seriously – hear me out. Kimball waffles are the perfect ratio of crispy and fluffy. It’s magical), and just enjoying my time on the Hill. With only two weeks left, I feel like there’s so much that I have to see and do in Worcester and around Holy Cross. Well, I was able to accomplish two things on my bucket list.
1) Max out my library borrowing allowances. Yes, I currently have 50 books from Dinand in my room. Kind of exciting, kind of sad.
2) Climb the Kimball Hill and take photos with friends.
Yesterday was a beautiful day, so Carrie, Miriam, Rebecca, Janet, Tina, Meghan, and I had an impromptu climb and photoshoot. We all met freshman year, and we’ve been the best of friends ever since. Here are the results (all photos are courtesy of Miriam Westin):
I think the general frivolity went extremely well, don’t you? We’re planning for another session where we just do all sorts of random poses around campus. After we did our group shots, Miriam took a couple of individual shots for us. Miriam was kind enough to take a photo of me in one of my favorite spots on campus.
I love Commencement/Fenwick Porch. I remember coming here for my tour and standing on that exact porch and thinking, “Wow. This campus is gorgeous.” Besides, if a bunch of white columns and ivy doesn’t scream college, then I don’t know what does.<< Older Entries
