I had the best weekend of my whole entire life this weekend. There were so many hugs and smiles and friends. To say it was magical would be an understatement. It basically started on Wednesday night when my friends and I went out to dinner at Blue Cat and then sang karaoke. I also registered for classes at Georgetown! Then on Thursday we had the Political Science Department senior awards dinner. I received the Outstanding Political Science Major Award, which was a real honor.
Then Saturday was Sigma Alpha Iota and Phi Mu Alpha’s formal and to say it was fantabulous would be an understatement. It was 1920’s murder mystery themed, so I had fun dressing up. We went to Bennigans for dinner, which was the same place my roommate and I went for our freshman year formal dinner. Funny how things come full circle. Formal was at Jumer’s Casino and was so much fun! We tried the slot machines and I won 79 cents which was pretty awesome.
Then on Sunday I started out my morning with initiation for Sigma Alpha Iota. My littles are now actives, which is so exciting. After that I went to the Fourth Estate Awards Banquet for the MJMC department. I won the Outstanding Interpretive Writing award and the Richard Whitt Memorial Outstanding Journalism Award, which was a nice way to end my time with the paper.
After that, it was back to Sigma Alpha Iota for our Senior Farewell. I was very proud that I didn’t cry. I was so honored to receive the Sword of Honor and the superlative of “Future President.” These girls have meant so much to me these past four years and it’s sad that I’m officially considered an alumni.
I don’t understand how time has flown by so fast! I’ve done so much these past four years and it’s thrilling to see how far I’ve come. I shall be blogging about my “last times” of everything sometime this weekend hopefully!
