Back in the Day

So, naturally I've graduated from college. I have a diploma that will be arriving in the mail as soon as I get my internship material turned in. I have a job. I'm working in the real world and I get my first paycheck tomorrow, (cross your fingers that that's really true). I tell everyone who's going back to BYU how jealous I am that I'm no longer a college student, and that I'm no longer living the college lifestyle.

So, why just today, did it just hit me that I'm really NOT going back to BYU? That I'm really not done working at the end of August. And that I'm really stuck working for the rest of my life? Maybe reality takes awhile to set in for me, knock me into line, and wake me up to what's instore for the next several years of my life. It's a rude awakening.

From my childhood to my adolesent years, and now this whole young adulthood chapter, life has had some crazy twists and turns. What happened to those days of watching Saturday morning cartoons like the Smurfs, CareBears, Fraggle Rock, Gummi Bears, and DuckTales?

Amy just wait tell you have kids then all the cartoons you would ever want to watch.. Emily's fav right now is Scooby-Doo or there are the days that we watch Snow White for 5 to 6 time a day all in a row

Loved the Gummi Bears theme music. I used to get up at 8:00 every Saturday to watch the show.

Yeah, isn't working 40hr weeks quite the B. I think so. That's when you decide to go back to Grad School or something to make college last longer. Or start doing trade schools. Who knows. Thanks for the welcome back, east coast style.

Gummy Bears, bouncing here and there and everywhere, wild adventures beyond compare, they are the Gummy Bears! Sigh. I miss those days, too.

Shawna took my thoughts exactly. Right after reading that, I thought, you can watch all the cartoon you want when you have kids. In fact, you may see more than you ever wanted. I miss all those cartoons though. Not too many of them are still on TV. It is sad to grow up sometimes.

So funny. I remember a week after college graduation I got married. It wasn't until the next august that I became so sad that I really wasn't going back to school. Weston was and I remember being so jealous of him. Sometimes I even wanted to go to class with him. Then he got homework and I was over it.
