"Don't think of it as work. The whole point is to just enjoy yourself," Otter says to Boon in Animal House after hitting a few golf balls. I couldn't have said it better. I strive to find enjoyment in everything I do daily. Certainly, I will miss a few desired rounds of golf. However, I won’t lose any skill from attending class or participating during my internship with the Kelley School of Indianapolis
As a nontraditional senior at IUPUI, I’ve come to self-awareness during my academic journey. As of winter break, I will have earned a degree from the school of general studies. I couldn’t be more excited for what some may call a lack of direction. I much prefer to view this degree as a never-ending hallway with doors just waiting to hear my knock. I am so eager to explore this professional hallway.
A strange path to completion of this degree has allowed for me to experience more than most of my peers that I have found to be a great advantage. Previous involvement in the professional world has helped me gain a better understanding of what to take from this final semester. I hold an associate’s degree in biotechnology, and I am also a licensed cosmetologist in the state of Indiana.
This blog will be an avenue of expression from my odd collection of experiences. I look forward to sharing what I have learned and continue to learn in the final leg of this particular journey.Read more posts from this author
