what I wore: what are YOU doing after graduation?

button up: c/o Persunmall cardigan: mom (similar), jeans: f21 (similar), flats: target (similar), earrings: the limited (similar), watch: no longer sold (similar)

Seriously, this is the question of the semester. 

What are YOU doing after graduation?

I kid you not, everyone I sit by, everyone I talk to wants to know what I'm doing once I graduate. 
I'm sure it's just the natural curiosity of a social worker, but remember what we learned in 303? Boundaries, people! Okay, I'm getting worked up. 

Here's the toned down version. 

This semester is the semester I've waited my entire college career for. 
The past six and a half years have all lead up to this exact semester, the final chapter. 
I got a little teary eyed last night talking about the end of this semester. 
Thinking about how both Brand and I will be graduating from something. 
I'll be getting my Bachelors and he'll be getting his masters. 
Don't think I haven't already thought about the cute pictures we will take in our cap and gown outfits. 

So many things that Brand and I have done have taken time, and I have learned so much from it. 
Finding new jobs, going to school, finishing school, applying to new schools, working our bums off, I feel like these past few years have been such a test for us. A good test that is. 
I've learned patience, how to de-stress, how to choose to be happy, to love, to be understanding, to pray, to listen, and mostly I've learned to trust my Heavenly Father. 

Anyways, my answer usually tends to be somethings like: Oh, well I want to be a mom, but I think this summer I'm going to nanny and after that I don't know. 
Sure I get weird remarks, but can't I just enjoy this time?!

I am so absolutely excited for May to get here and to feel the weight of school be lifted off my shoulders. 
Till then.



  1. Visiting from the Random Wednesday Link-up! Totally enjoy your time after graduation! I enjoyed a crazy three months off between BS and PhD school and it was so fun! You're young, have a little fun :)

  2. I say you're totally ok with having the plans to be a mom!

  3. I got this question so much when I was finishing up school! And yeah, people never seem to impressed with my non-committal answers--oh well! I've definitely enjoyed life post-graduation, even if I never intended on having a high-powered career in the first place!

  4. polkadots plus leopard print.... awesome! :)

    Found your post via Watch What I Am Wearing link up... hope you stop by and let me know your thoughts on my outfit. :)

  5. After I graduated I got a full time job, dated for the first time and married my first date- 4 kids later we are still happy. What kind of social work do you want to do? I have met with and known several child foster care social workers (for getting custody of our niece) and I don't mean to scare you but here in VA I have only known few to last past a year or two- hats off to your field. So exciting about you graduating though. :) Found you through the fundaymonday link up. Come by and check my blog out sometime. Rachel Xoxo ps- cute outfit and the shoes are adorable, they remind me of a pair from ASOS I saw.

  6. This looks gorgeous on you, great look.
