  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]
  • A Theatrical Rivalry with Love and Despair
    By Jay Grummel If We Were Villains has a way of making the horrifics acts of rivals and the blurry line of morals poetic. At first glance I didn’t think I’d enjoy this book as much as I did, especially with the amount of times it quoted Shakespeare. However, after diving into this dark academic […]

Graduation nears; job offer gives chance to move across country

I graduate in May and I am terrified.

I am terrified of going out into the real world. I am scared of being thousands of miles away from my parents in New Mexico.

Most of all, I am scared of being 20 the day of graduation.

While in high school, I had the amazing opportunity to take college classes through Post-Secondary Enrollment Option, or PSEO.

PSEO allowed me to take college classes, while still being enrolled in high school, and earn dual credit. Best of all, it was free.

I took PSEO my junior and senior years of high school.

In the two years, I managed to get one whole year of college out of the way.

It is a law, in the state of Ohio, that all public universities accept PSEO credit. So, when I stepped foot on Bowling Green’s campus in the fall of 2011, I was already a sophomore.

Having a whole year out of the way was great at first. I didn’t have to take silly general education classes like GSW, nor did I have to take speech, psychology or sociology to name a few.

I jumped right into my major and plowed through my classes.

Then, last year, I realized that I was going to graduate in May 2014.

At first, I was excited. Less money in loans, less money to pay back.

The first semester went by in a blur. I knew graduation was coming, but it seemed far away.

Winter break happened. I knew I should be applying for jobs but I figured I still had some time before May came.

It wasn’t until spring break came that I started freaking out. It was March and graduation was two months away.

Since March 9, the Sunday of spring break, I have applied for 54 jobs.

I only received two calls for potential jobs. I got one job offer and took it.

My nerves have not settled even though I have a job waiting.

While I have saved a ton of money by doing PSEO, I am terrified of starting my life at barely 21-years-old.

I am also upset that I didn’t have the opportunity to be more active on campus more. I rushed through internships both on and off campus. I didn’t go on crazy spring break vacations. I didn’t have very crazy summers with friends.

I went through the motions of school and never really had fun.

Cherish the time you have in college. Don’t complain about how long four years may feel to you.

Take it from the girl that is going through college in three years.

It will be gone in a flash.
