Joy: College Friends

Pizza, Trivia, and College Friends. It doesn’t get much better than that! Thursday night I met up with friends who I’ve known for 10 years now. And it is amazing how much has changed in those years.

10 years ago we didn’t know what we wanted to do, or where we wanted to live. We had ideas of things we might do, and none of those things actually happened. Yet, I don’t think we would take any of it back. If things didn’t work out the way we hoped, it is probably for a reason. And who knows, those old dreams might come to be in another 10 years.

I am 100% sick of people asking me what I am going to do now that my MBA program is completed. I know its the natural question to ask, but I don’t have a good answer. “Nothing” is the true answer, but even that doesn’t fit my personality. I like to be working on something, but until I get a few life things in order I need to hold off on grand goals/plans.

Thankfully the friends I’ve known since college have seen me in freshman year with no goals, and senior year networking my butt off to find a good job. They know I’m capable of both and understand that I like to get out and have a good time, while also just relaxing and being low key.

Do you always have a plan? Or do you relax and see what happens? What’s your favorite kind of pizza?

  1. It’s always tough to answer those ‘what now?’ questions especially when you don’t know what is next. There’s always so much pressure to have a plan but sometimes you have to give yourself time to figure out what the next step is. And when it bothers you that you don’t know, it’s hard to answer those questions patiently. It’s a different situation but I felt the same way when people would ask when I was going to get engaged when Phil and I were dating. I HATED being asked that because while we were talking about it, I had no idea when it was going to happen and it’s really not anyone’s business. I know they ask because they care but it just put more pressure on me and made me feel like we should already be engaged!

    My favorite pizza is something loaded with lots of veggies and then maybe sausage and pepperoni. That said I did have a bbq chicken pizza from Hello Pizza (another restaurant by the person who started Pizzeria Lola) and it was so good, so I would order something like that again if i saw it on a menu!!

  2. I didn’t have a plan when I was finishing college. The plan kind of found me. I am a planner about some things, but I can be relaxed about others.
    I like sausage and black olives on my pizza 🙂
