Obligatory Corny Graduation Post

« previous entry | next entry »
May. 8th, 2010 | 06:41 pm

A few days ago, I completed the very last final exam of my undergraduate college career.

It wasn't nearly as climactic as I expected it to be (much to my chagrin, the sun did not explode just because I am graduating).

However, it did make me think a lot. As always.

I came to the realization that UNC has become extremely dear to me in an unexpected way. When I look back to my freshman year (ah, reminiscing!), it occurs to me that it took me a really long time to feel comfortable here. From the very beginning, I was an outsider in every way. I was an out-of-state student in a school of mostly in-state students. I did not know a single other person, and I was completely apathetic (at best) about college basketball. I felt like I was the only person in the entire school who did not already know the words to the alma mater. Big lecture classes made me feel lost in a sea of unfamiliar faces. I didn't dress like anyone else. I didn't talk like anyone else. I missed my family.

As time has passed, though, this place has grown on me so subtly that I haven't even realized it. I made some of the best friends and created some of the best memories a person can ask for.

Instead of writing about all of them and putting everyone to sleep, I think it would be more effective to demonstrate with some old photos. A picture is worth a thousand words, right?


My favorite UNC memories
1. Singing "Carolina In My Mind" with James Taylor



2. 2009 Men's Basketball National Championship



3. Playas!!!



4. Eating Dinner at Pepper's



5. Organic Chemistry (ha! Yeah right!)



6. Football Games



7. Halloween



8. Raleigh State Fair



9. The Dining Hall! (Never thought I would say that)



10. Band Trips


And on that note, I just want to say

GOODBYE UNC!!!!!!



I will miss you and always remember you.

With love,
Margarita

Lovely.

Won't even say, "Go Duke" or anything. :-)

I'm surprised too. Where did the time go? Where is the gawky freshman? That can't be her? She's all grown up and stuff.

Congratulation, Margarita. UNC is glad to have met you as well, I'm sure.

Ok, the fun is over. Whatcha gonna do now? ;)

I know, I know, time has completely flown by! It is creeping me out.

I just got accepted recently to a medical school in Puerto Rico, and I just accepted a position in the class. Yikes!!! It's so far away, but I'm really looking forward to it.

Great to hear from you! How are you and your family?

That's really cool. And, it's not that much farther, really, from home than UNC was...ok...a few miles... :)

We're doing great. Jr is 4 now. Eeek! Still involved in the HP Cons and we're having one in Orlando at Universal (they're opening an HP section in the park) in July. So, I'm busy with that at the moment.

Congrats again about finishing school. That's huge! Have fun in the PR! Keep in touch.

Squats help you work out entire muscle mass groups devoid of delay, and these are nice exercises when you're constructing muscle mass mass in your lower entire body
