Graduation Station

17 05 2011

In a time of complete uncertainty, what can make me feel better?  An episode of Sex in the City of course.

This time next week I will be an official graduate of THE University of Texas at Austin – and an honors graduate at that.

I am excited, and I have so much to be thankful for – BUT can I tell you what I will be doing in a month from now?  Absolutely not.  I am not sure if this fact should be freeing or limiting.  For a “planner” like me it’s pretty much put me on edge because I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I WILL BE DOING FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.

Honestly, that was freeing to say.  Ask me in the morning, and I’ll probably be back to being on edge waiting for my calling to come.  Of course, I’ve never been very good at waiting… which leads me to my next thought: is impatience a virtue or an imperfection?  And yes, that was a rhetorical question.

As some of you may know, momentum has built with the GIRLS WHO ROCK concert coming up on June 10 – for which we just booked Kathy Sledge of Sister Sledge – think back to WE ARE FAMILY!  Our website has been updated so click it for more deets.

In further news, our Make Charity Cool crew is preparing for the June 18 Make Charity Cool Pub Crawl across the wonderful world of New York City – which just so happens to be the birthday weekend of our brilliant founder and CEO Stefanie Cronin!!!

As for what comes next, stay tuned.  Don’t worry, the suspense will kill me too.

Next up on the Monday lineup: Chelsea Lately.  Does life get any better than this?

Last night I watched the 1967 movie “The Graduate,” starring Dustin Hoffman… I have to say, I watched it hoping for some inspiration, but found none as I watched him have an affair with a married woman and then fall in love with her daughter… can’t see any of that happening in my life…

Nevertheless, I will be enjoying my last week as a college SENIOR with my amazing friends and family – and will be living up every last second in the best playground around: Austin, Tejas.

I will end my most incongruent post ever with my motto for the moment: 

To get big rewards, you must take big risks.
