The Revised LIFE Plan

I’m sure you remember that momentary breakdown moment I had toward the end of Freshman year where I went psycho on my Roommates and plotted out the rest of my college career to shove in my advisor’s face.

Since then, a LOT has changed. But one thing that hasn’t is my affinity and slight OCD for long-term planning. I like to know what’s going to happen in my life 3 years from now, even though I haven’t the slightest clue what I’m eating for dinner the following evening. And that’s okay, that is just the kind of person I am. Long term overarching plans are a structure I need, because they make me feel and believe that life is going somewhere. With that being said, here’s the revised College LIFE plan!

If you did the math with me, you’ll see that I have 9 classes left until I graduate!!! We take 4 classes per semester so that leaves me with 4 credits to complete the second semester of my senior year. Now there are a few things I can do:

1. Pay for those 4 credits and attend as a non full time student Spring 2013
2. Take a course over the summer, graduate a semester early
3. Take the 8 credit intensive to finish my minor over the summer, then just take 3 classes + an internship for credit for Fall 2012. Still graduate a semester early

I see myself doing either Option 2 or Option 3.

Which means that it is official, Pryanka is applying to graduate early!!
