It’s not an I love college post without referencing the great Asher Roth at least once…so enjoy this music video and enjoy my post immediately after!
KEG STAND KEG STAND KEG……done already? Whoops. Then I shall proceed with the important stuff!
So I met with my guidance counselor today and she is absolutely FANTASTIC. Seriously we were a match made in heaven. I beyond lucked out when I got paired with her when I called to schedule an appointment. I won’t use her name to ensure her privacy, so we’ll just call her Miss Lady! And let me just say that Miss Lady is an absolute dynamo. Our energy is so alike it’s almost unreal. We’re both extremely enthusiastic and witty, but also straight forward enough that we were able to get legitimate work done amidst all of our first meeting jabber and jokes. I know for a fact that I’ll be on a path to success at Tri-C with Miss Lady by my side. She managed to get me into some classes so I can start them on October 20th rather than in January when the Spring semester starts. Needless to say, I’m THRILLED, because the last thing I wanted to do was have to wait any longer to start some courses. My counselor was genuinely interested in me and my hobbies. When I told her that I’m really into music, she asked me for suggestions on bands I like so that she could listen to them and talk with me about them when I see her next Wednesday for my new student orientation. I thought that was the coolest thing ever – the fact that she wanted to get to know me on a more intimate level than just guidance counselor and student made me feel like we’re going to be friends. Pause. I know we’re going to be friends…..
Jack White thinks so too.
Not only was she interested in my taste in music, but she was interested in my blog as well! She was specifically interested in my fashion sense which sealed our friendship deal right there. Anyone who appreciates my piercings, my freshly dyed bright red hair, and the outfits I throw together can be my friend any day! The personal touches she added to our conversations, like how she was excited to see what I was going to wear next Wednesday made me so excited to start this college chapter in my life. It’s so nice going into a new adventure with somebody on your side. Now I don’t feel so alone and overwhelmed. I feel quite the opposite actually – I feel empowered, I feel ready, I feel like I’m going to be successful. I’ve never felt that way about school before and it’s an AWESOME feeling. For once in my life, I feel really proud of myself. Tri-C – I’m ready for you!!!! Have a fantastic Hump Day everyone! Learn something new. -Sarah
