Last day of classes as an undergrad!

Getting 3 papers returned today. Got two already, both A's. Got a perfect 50/50 on a presentation i gave last week. Funny how it took me four years to figure out how to do that with ease...and consistently.

Oh well


Does work really suck that much? I mean...cuz i'll drop out right now

The real world is overrated. Consider taking the "professional student" route. If you feel like you could use a little more cash, consider transferring to San Diego State. I hear there are openings there for student pharmaceutical reps who aren't stupid.

I'm still not sure if this is something to be jealous about. You know, student loan repayment, work, daily grind...that sort of thing. The interim is nice though.

18 anyone?

Depends on your career, but even when I was in my career field, "real life" was like recess compared to everything leading up to it. Even now, life seems so easy compared to my college days. Seriously.
