As this summer has gone on, it’s begun to dawn on me that I only have one year left as an undergraduate student at WashU. In less than a year, I have to have a job or enroll in graduate school. I have to be a real, living, breathing adult with responsibilities like feeding myself and not burning down my apartment. Anyone who knows me knows that this is going to be a long, uphill battle. I’m still in the “stay-in-my-pajamas-all-day-and-eat-cereal-out-of-the-box-to-try-and-find-the-toy” phase of my life. But here are some things I’ve learned on my quest for adulthood.
An American Affair
Happy (belated) 4th of July! Last Friday and Saturday, I attended Fair St. Louis, America’s Biggest Birthday Party! Fair STL is a huge 3-day celebration (we’re talking about 125,000 people here) on Art Hill, the hill outside of the St. Louis Art Museum in Forest Park. If you enjoy music, people, food, America, or happiness, then Fair St. Louis is the event for you!
A Concerted Effort
One of the biggest facets of my life is music. I play three instruments, you’ll never find me without my earbuds, and I am a firm believer that Spotify is the greatest thing to ever happen to mankind. If you ever ask me what my plans are for the weekend, 99.98% of the time, I will probably say that I’m going to a concert – I’ve been to 5 so far this summer! I’ve been making an effort toward quenching my concert addiction, but nothing seems to have done the trick. This post is me channeling my problem productively by sharing my experiences with the St. Louis music scene with all of you!
Once Upon A Time There Was a Girl Named Caroline
Hello! I’ve been told that this is post where I’m supposed to introduce myself. I’m a rising senior from the NYC suburbs, majoring in biomedical engineering and marketing. I like playing tennis and eating meatballs. I am 75% water and 100% excited to tell you all about WashU this summer! (I’m also 10000% sorry in advance for my lame jokes.)
