Since classes ended last week, life has been a blur of end-of-the-year parties and barbecues, not to mention awesome senior week events, and generally enjoying the weather which has FINALLY made the leap from winter to summer. The last day of classes every spring semester is of course Slope Day, a giant celebration of the end of the year with a big-name concert on Libe Slope marked by 24 hours of revelry (check out the Huffington Post’s review: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/05/12/the-10-best-college-music_n_861290.html). This year’s headliner was Nelly, accompanied by the Cool Kids and Ra Ra Riot, and I had a blast with all of my housemates celebrating our last Slope Day.

We made our own Slope Day shirts!

Well, finally, the end is pretty much here. All I’ve got left between me and my degree is one exam on Tuesday morning, and then I’m done with my undergraduate career. And finally (FINALLY), I have some plans for at least the immediate post-graduate life— I was hired recently to work in the tasting room of Finger Lakes Distilling (http://www.fingerlakesdistilling.com/), so I will spend at least the summer months living in Ithaca and working at the craft distillery on Seneca Lake, about a 30 minute drive. I’m extremely excited to learn more about the production of spirits— and also to be able to add “pouring liquor” to the list of special skills on my resume ;)

Since it’s getting to be that time, most of the people in my house now have plans for the summer at least, and some have permanent plans for next year. Jessie and Dave aren’t seniors, so the two of them don’t have to worry about securing permanent employment just yet (luckies!!). Both will be sticking around Ithaca this summer, taking classes and working on campus. Francis and Tyler, both seniors like myself, will be taking the summer to work construction, building bridges down south for a few months to save up before they take their next steps. Lloyd is heading home to Westchester, where he will be working as a camp counselor, while Johnny and Bennett have actually gracefully transitioned into adulthood and will be starting their real grown-up jobs in New York City this fall.

I’m still not sure what I’m doing with my life, or even after August, but I’m relieved to have secured employment at least temporarily to prevent the complete meltdown of my bank account. Next obstacle: find summer housing…
