5 Annoying Questions Graduating College Seniors are Asked

I never got to experience senior year in high school, because I opted to skip it for the college program that brought me to Seattle University in the first place. But even if I had a high school senior year, I don’t think I would be bombarded with as many of the questions I’ve listed below. Back then, the expectation was that I’d attend a university and major in something. It was always just a question of which university and which major.

But now that the end of my college experience is approaching, the questions I get from people have become frustrating and daunting. They’re just such big questions to ask and it’s only fall quarter, everyone. Read More.

In the Midst of Transitions

In less than a week, I leave for the Philippines…which is where I’ll be for the entirety of this summer. The reality of that statement scares me. I still have yet to pack and there are so many people I want to hang out with, catch up with, etcetera before I leave. But knowing me, once I’ll leave, I’ll only be looking forward.

Lately, my blog has been filled with a lot of “series” posts. There was my “Humans of Seattle Coffee Shops” series, which I put on hiatus because Spring Quarter kept me busy. A few weeks ago, I started a “Start Up Saturdays/Sundays” series, where I introduce an innovation that I came across during the week. I have also been writing more restaurant/event reviews since I’ve been going to a lot of new places lately.

But there’s a lot more going on in my life that I haven’t had a chance to write about so here’s a post dedicated to some of the transitions I’ve been going through lately. Read More.

More than Halfway There

My best friend, Robert and I freshman year (top) and this year (bottom).

Last week, I had my quarterly academic advising appointment. Advising appointments usually involve me working out what classes I will be taking with my advisor. However, since this quarter is my last quarter taking classes in Matteo Ricci College, the humanities college, my advisor told me to apply for graduation by the end of the quarter. Then it dawned me: I’m going to be a college senior next year.

It feels like just yesterday when I was navigating Seattle University’s campus for the first time as a freshman. It hasn’t even been that long since I started high school (especially since I graduated after junior year).

I’m already considered young to be a junior in college. I’ll be graduating before I turn 21. Despite all this, I somehow calculated a way to graduate a quarter early. Read More.
