Yesterday I went home for Easter and it was just such a lovely day. I spent the morning at church followed by an awesome afternoon of food, family, and fun. The day was filled with too many great things to list them all (traditions, catching-up, chocolate… just to name a few!), but probably the thing that struck me the most was something my grandmother said to me as I was saying my farewells. She said, “Good luck, Catherine! I’ll see you at graduation!” And it hit me just like that: the next time I will see most of my relatives will be at my college graduation. I just can’t believe it. I feel like I see my relatives pretty often, so to think that the next time we will all be together will be at my graduation means that it is right around the corner. I can’t handle that! I have seven weeks left of school, but I know they are going to feel like seven minutes. How do you slow down the clock??
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!
