As some of you may well know, I upload a fair number of my blog posts from TheGarnetLetter to Union College’s collective student blog “Unfiltered.” I usually don’t pay much attention to my publishing setting on the site, but the other day I read my profile name, Cat ’14, and did a double take: Cat ’14. As in the year 2014. As in I will be graduating in 2014. That’s frighteningly soon! Sometimes because I transferred I feel like I did my freshman year twice, so I feel like I have more time left at Union than I actually do. It’s really scary and sad because I love this place SO much. In just 5 short terms I have beasted my classes, joined and led so many wonderful clubs, built amazing relationships with brilliant professors and faculty, and (best of all) made friendships that will sincerely last my entire lifetime. I may be setting myself up for some nice gigs post-grad and I of course miss my twin like crazy, but I’m not ready to leave this place. At least not any time soon!
I am a senior in college who will be off in the wonderful world of finance come July. While my resume passions include scrupulously watching economic indicators and reading the Wall Street Journal, I could just as happily spend all day reading blogs and sharing my passion for food, fashion, and fun. I chew too much gum and probably write too many lists. I know I don't know everything just yet, but TheGarnetLetter is the beginning of my little thank you note to the wonderful world!
