The Ohio State University

Now that I’ve graduated (hurray!) I’ve been wanting to write at least one conclusive post about the Ohio State experience—or, at least, mine. Truthfully, there is no simple or holistic way to condense what it means to be a Buckeye, nor the experiences you go through. I have an inexplicable propensity for making lists, and so I listed the first 31 things that came to mind when I looked back on my 3 years as an undergraduate at The Ohio State University, in no particular order—the good, the bad, the strange, and the mundane:
…It’s not particularly polished, or beautiful, or profound. I will forever miss undergrad, but I’m also really excited to be starting graduate school here—which I know will be a fulfilling combination of the old and the new. And I feel especially grateful that all of my freshman friends will still be around as it’s their (and still kind of my?!) senior year.
Rude Awakening: This is the literally the first term I’ve had in three years in which I haven’t been taking classes. AND WHAT THE HECK, I ACTUALLY REALLY MISS TAKING CLASSES.
Pleasant Surprise: Summer = Summer READING. I’m stoked to be making a dent once again in my forever-lengthening reading list. I’ve already knocked out 1984 (had some fun dreams post that experience) and now I’m onto the Lord of the Rings Trilogy… and already placing bets with myself for how long it’ll take me to get through it. TRYING TO STAY OPTIMISTIC.
In firm friendship,
