get down, get down, get deeper and down...saturday night

 **NOTE: this was supposed to be posted last night but then my power went out in the middle of my writing and, of course, my laptop wasn't fully charged. Whoops!

Ah the life of a recent graduate! It's just fun, fun and even more fun all the time, especially on the weekends (please note the heavy use of sarcasm there). Alright, that's actually not fair. The post grad life definitely has its perks, one of which being the complete and utter lack of exams or pop quizzes or mandatory movie viewings. These are all great things. But right now I can only think of the negatives...or rather, one negative, in particular. Weekends are suddenly a whole different ballgame. Right now, at 11:30 pm on a Saturday night, I am crafting. Don't get me wrong! I love crafting things and I'm glad that I finally have the chance to tackle a project that I've been meaning to work on literally since my high school graduation but I have become accustomed to a certain lifestyle and that lifestyle generally consists of fratting my fucking face off. This, needless to say, is quite the departure from what I am used to. I know, I know....i experience this every summer. But this summer is different. As of this summer, I know that I can never ever do those things again. It’s weird. I know I have this whole other exciting and nerve wracking world to look forward to but it’s scary! It also doesn’t help that I just finally caught up on the final season of Greek. Thanks for the slap in the face, perspective.

But you know what? I had a GREAT four years and I have to see what’s next. So here’s to more crafty weekends...maybe after this project, I’ll finally get around to starting my high school scrapbook! Better late than never, right?

i am going through these same exact feelings. i never knew i would be so emotionally conflicted about graduating and leaving that lifestyle behind - its much harder than i ever thought. i can totally relate to this as my weekend nights are now filled with crafting and family game nights, a huge departure from the all night raging i was doing only a month ago.
