One month till graduation!

I'm posting again today since today is exactly 1 month from my graduation ceremony. (And also because I wrote my last post several days ago and forgot to post it, oops). In 1 month, I will be a college graduate. I honestly can't believe it. I hope this month goes in slow motion. Regardless, I am beyond excited and cannot wait to see what see what the future holds. This semester I have been literally freaking out trying to figure out what I'm going to do with the rest of my life, but I finally feel like everything is falling into place and that it will all be okay. I have defiently realized that I am truly blessed and have so many accomplishments that I should be proud of. Life does not end at college, well let's hope not. I guess I will have to wait and find out!

Lacey in Europe? Well, not yet!

I realized I forgot to mention in my last post my exciting news and the reason behind the url of my blog. About two weeks ago I was accepted into an internship program called camp adventure. Basically what it is a program that sends college age students abroad to work in summer camp or child development centers on US military bases. The program pays for travel expenses, my living expenses on base and some food and also a small stipend. I will also get weekends off to travel! I will be traveling to GERMANY with one of my best friends from high school Liz, we will be working in child development centers. I'm not sure exactly where in Germany I will be yet, I wont find out till about 30-45 days before I leave. the program is 17 weeks and my tentative trip dates are August 22-December 17. I am ridiculously excited, I have always wanted to travel to Europe but haven't been able to afford it. And this way I am also putting off getting a job or continuing school! It is going to be quite an adventure and I can't wait!

Hello blogging world!

So I'm happy to say I have officially entered the blogging world. Being a Media Studies student I felt I needed one and I have always wanted one but have never known what to write. My reason now you ask? The adventure of college graduation and post-grad life (scary thought). Graduation is fastly approaching, May 22nd at 12:30pm to be exact and that is in 37 short days! Eek! I honestly cannot believe that my four collegiate years are coming to an end. I feel extremely fortunate for the past four amazing years. Starting off college in the beautiful Santa Barbara was ridiculously amazing. Not to mention the unique opportunity of living on the lovely Del Playa Drive which just happens to be situated on a cliff right over the pacific ocean, breathtaking to say the least. My past two years in San Diego have been great as well, the transition was fairly easy(besides learning how to navigate the 9346781234578 freeways they have here in SD0 especially after joining my sorority, Delta Gamma. Joining a sorority was a decision I will never regret with friends and memories that will last a lifetime. While graduation is a scary thought, I am ready for a new chapter in life. While I will miss the frat parties, my friends, DG, the wide acceptance of binge drinking, and maybe even school I know that the future only holds new, exciting experiences. I know these next 37 days are going to fly by. I am SO busy with school(19 units), work, DG, the pre-dental club, babysitting, and required volunteer hours I am honestly surprised I still have a social life or time to sleep. I know it will all pay off but the stress is really getting to me. I'm off to bed, I am volunteering at a dental expo tomorrow at the early hour of 7am!
