Post Graduation To-Do List:

So as many of you are aware my college graduation is looming! I have approximately 21 days left at my current college job (quitting day is December 12, come hell or zombie apocolypse) and only 25 left as an actual college student.




But really? Who is counting?

That's right. I am! I feel like that light at the end of the tunnel stuff is actually true, and everyday it gets a little brighter.

Recently I made the announcement that I may be moving to Phoenix, AZ in December. Well I have actually been informed that a teaching position may become available in the school that I am at, so that plan may not be happening. It would be awesome to move! But smarter to stay where I am at. However that means I need to line up some new goals. Here they are:

  1. I've lived in Colorado since I was 3 years old and my parents have encouraged us to do extensive travelling, but I want to do more. I found this website that has a list of 99 Places to Visit in Colorado and I want to go visit all of them. I'm going to get a bike rack for my car and a better camera. Have puppy will travel!
 
 
2. I am going to repaint my living room. Currently it is peanut butter brown. A color my parents and I selected when I graduated high school. Now I'm graduating college. It is time. I am also going to paint that ceiling if it kills me...
 
 
 
 
3. I'm painting my front door. Again. Yellow.  {Source}
 
 
 
 
4. I am going to actually rebuild the back porch so that it is usable. That is going to require getting a new back door so that in the morning I can use it to let Sebastian out. It would be much much easier if we could do that. Also the porch would be open on both sides so that you don't have to squeeze your hinny  through an eight inch space. Oh. And I want to put up a privacy fence along that back fence. Yay! No more neighbors tire collection!
 


 
 
5.  I'm going to build new seating for my front porch that is more effective than the various chairs. Plus I would be able to add more pillows. :) I like this idea {here}
 
 
(sorry it won't let me make the picture any bigger)
 
6. Maybe get a garage for my current place? I could store things inside! Like my car! And bikes! And.... decorating crap!
 
 
 
7. I want a sectional couch. Like this one: {source}
 
 
 
 
 
Obviously all these things will take some time and saving (especially with student loans coming up... eek) but it feels good to know that I will actually have the time and ability to work on new goals and dreams for myself. I'm excited. If you have any post-graduation tips... feel free to share!

  1. Yay for quitting your job soon! Boo that you aren't moving to Phoenix! Makes sense, but I'm still bummed. You should still come visit! I can't wait to see all the updates you are planning! And the fun places you are going to visit!

  2. Yay!! Almost grad! :) I'm impressed you're even able to make plans for what you want to do after you graduate, I can only imagine how busy you must be right now! I'm excited to see all of your updates. I won't lie...I've even started creating a summer to-do list for myself (just in my head....but that' really a long ways off!)

    Do you know you are a no-reply blogger? I know it happened to me when I switched to a google plus profile so I switched back. I wanted to reply to your comment - thanks for stalking me in my special ed world too - makes me feel special (in a good way lol)
