Tossing the Tassel

Tossing the Tassel

OMG. Oh. My. God. Shy of two weeks, I will be walking across SMU's Meadow's Garden with my degree in business journalism. You think I shouldn't be worried about the decision to wear silk or sheer depending on the atmosphere but here I am, same old Farah. Just 5 years ago, [yes, I am one [...]

Fall semester starts tomorrow and as a 5th year, all your excitement is at a standstill. You're happy you're not in the real world yet because you haven't done enough internships to not mess anything up but at the same time, the knowledge of students being a whole four years younger than you is depressing.
