Done –> Senior Now

May 7th, 2010

It was a weird feeling. I turned in my last final and I knew I was done with my junior year. I also knew that I had no responsibilities the coming days, that I was not busy. It almost felt like I fell into a hole. The whole year I have been running from one amazing activity, to a big paper, to an exam, and back to my room to get a little bit of sleep. Now, I could finally stop running.

I just walked around campus for a while inhaling the fresh spring air. It was an amazing feeling; a feeling of accomplishment, satisfaction, and total relaxation.

Now I am here on campus to finish my Residence Life duties. I will be checking students out of their rooms, cleaning the halls, and filing paperwork. After Commencement on Monday, this campus will be very empty. On Thursday, I will be traveling to my home country, The Netherlands. I am looking forward to spending time with my younger brother, my younger sister that I haven’t seen in a while, my parents, and my friends from home. Exciting things to come are my brother’s graduation, a vacation with my friends, and the World Cup.

I will spend this summer to explore my options after graduation. Will I continue my studies in The Netherlands, will I start working, will I continue my education in the United States, or somewhere else?

These are all important questions, so I want to take some time to answer them. Also, I will be planning some things for my positions next year: Resident Director and Campus Council Chair. I will try to come up with some activities to do great in both positions. I won’t be as busy next year as I was this year, but I want to give as much as I can for the things that I will do.

I’ll be back as a senior.
