For one, with my job as a suite captain, I had unfortunately missed every game as a student/fan. In addition, I had only tailgated a handful of times. With that said, this became one of my favorite things to do this year during the football season. My parents came up during Eastern Toledo, Wisconsin, and IU. For all three games they made a ton of food and invited all of my friends to come over and tailgate with us. During the IU game, we had four cars, three tents, and more food to know what to do with.
Lastly, I think one of the most important things I did this past semester was live in the moment and do whatever I could to be with my friends and have fun. While schoolwork was still the most important and I always made sure it was finished, I also tried to make equal amounts of time for friends. For instance, two of my good friends and I would make a gourmet dinner on Sunday nights when all of us where free; each of us had such a great time, I will never forget it. Being that one of them graduated, we will not be able to do it again next semester.
As a result, I do not regret my first three years for what I missed out on due to my success. I had countless successful internships, exposed to many networking opportunities, and a job offer during my first semester senior year with my top company choice. But now, it is my time to relax and enjoy, spend time with friends, explore life and have fun because it only happens once!
