ANXIETY!!! I’m too old to be hav’n anxiety …. especially about my last year in university!!!

August 16, 2013

It’s really starting to sink in … this is my final year of being a senior!!! 

Of course, I was a senior last year, and the year before that; but this year – IT”S FOR REAL.

As a lot of folks around me might “text” …. OMG!!!

My friends on “Facebook” may actually acknowledge me ……LOL!!!!!

I started this gauntlet in 1972, in a community college in Virginia Bch., Va. And as life would have it; its only taken a mere 41 yrs to get to B a serious graduation threat. I have bunches of hours from bunches of schools I’ve attended through my “maturing years;” but, now, I’m close. I can see the cap & gown actually having to be “let-out” because I’m not 23 anymore. ………………… Sweet!

Their probably gonna have to get me a chair on the podium so I can rest once I get up there …….. Sweet!

I wonder if they’ll let me: bow, or dance a victory “touch-down” dance like them football guys, maybe wave the school flag in one hand and my “blank” makeshift diploma to be mailed later after they make sure all my “fees”, parking tickets and such have been paid.

Monday morning, I’m gonna sit in the parking lot before anyone gets there … daybreak should be soon enough … and glory in my potential. I’ll get to watch all the “freshman” running helter-skelter being: LOST, LOST, LOST!! If they ask me directions, which usually happens because I’m old enough to look like I’ve been there a long time and know where every class is, who teaches it, and what it’ll take to get an”A”; I’ll nonchalantly yawn, a boring yawn, and “roll my eyes – and then put back on my dark-sunglasses. (I’ll have those even though it’s supposed to rain).

My first class isn’t until 10:45; I’ll arrive fashionably late. I’ll slowly survey the class over like Humphrey Bogartt trying to be aloof while cigarette smoke is ‘burn’n’ his eye. Dr. Lloyd will look up from his teaching podium, and indicate the front row seat nearest the door that he has been saving for me.A hush will fall over the class. All will be anxious to see if I’ll actually stay for class or fawn illness.

 AHHHH the trials and tribulations of being a SENIOR.          SWEET!!!!!!!!!

Best until next week!

    Hi There George! I wanted to let you know that I have nominated you for a Liebster award! You can find out more on my blog.

    • Heyhhh4u,
      I haven’t forgotten you. And, I thank you for the award mention. Life has been so heck-tick with a new semester. I’ve had a “draft” sit’n in my blog box for weeks. Oh the “disaster” of W-O-L-D. But, university is great. My poetry class is go’n very well. I’ve also managed to get “published.” Life is good.
      Best!
      G.
