Five Years Ago...

This weekend 5 years ago, my life was very very different. On Saturday, it will have been 5 years since I graduated from college. 
I graduated from Marshall University with a B.A. in Criminal Justice and Foreign Language German. I did it in 4 years by studying abroad and doing one session of summer classes. I was so thankful to be done with college. Oh... if I would have only known what it was like to be in the real world. 
At the time I was just so happy to be done with school (and I still am for that matter). I think what I miss most about college was the college life. Getting up late, having a spring break, being around my friends constantly and having the same schedules to plan things out easily. Plus the fact that I was in a sorority and a lot of fun came out of that. Those are the things I miss. 
Since graduating from Marshall, I've held two different jobs. Moved 7 hours away from home and then moved back. Lost a few friends and made a few friends. Bought a new car and now saving for a house. Changed hair styles and colors too many times to count. Traveled to the west coast, across the pond and to so many places in between. And so much more! 

To say that time has passed quickly is an understatement, it feels like time has flown by! However, I'm excited to see where the next 5 years take me. I have a feeling a few monumental things could take place in the next few years.

Yay, kudos on five years! Had I graduated when I was SUPPOSED to, this year would mark 5 for me as well. Unfortunately.... I'm still working at it, oops!

Wow. ugh. Tears. That was a great day, and now I'm inspired to copy you and post about it, too! I'll link to yours just to make it that much better - you know, "Marshall girls, Best in the World"! :D

Awww I graduated 4 years ago! It feels like FOREVER. The real world is overrated. Give me pizza and beer for dinner and sleeping in any day!

Time does fly by too fast after college. I can't believe I've been out 8 years!

Yay! Five years is a big deal during the late twenties. I graduated from college 7 years ago!! OLD. So funny what's happened since then (SO MUCH). It's exciting to think that we have no idea where we'll be five years from now.

BTW I love Urban Decay primer--wear it every day. :)

It's been 5 years for me too. So crazy to think I've been out of college longer than I was actually there for

Isn't it amazing to think of how different we were in college? I am almost ten years out, and it seems like so long ago - yet I really loved it when I was there!

5 years! Well done living life :)

It's 4 years for me. I had a very different college experience ... I LOVED the learning part and hated the social aspect absolutely and completely.
