The 1st thing to do after graduation?!

  1. What will be the 1st thing you do after graduation? After finals, pining ceremony or cap and gown graduation? Burning all of your "white" clothes in your closet?! I'm not graduating this year, but hey I can start dream dreaming, its just the time of the year!

    I've got a few things in mind...I don't care if I have a 2 cents in my bank account, I'm picking out a new car, "the dumpster" as my dad lovingly refers to my car will probably be running on prayers by then! I definately want to take a vacation of some sort to celebrate, don't know where yet.

    Any plans yet?

    LOL,, I have a lot of plans, but i have to get my 18y/o into college and start paying for that. Would love to have a new car, but will have to wait for a while im afraid.
    Dont know maybe go into debt anyway and take the kids on that Disney trip i have been promising since i graduated from LPN school 8 years ago. LOL They are a bit big for mickeys lap, but they wont be able to say i didnt take them.
    First step is catch up on much needed sleep after graduation.

    Sleep???! It sounds familiar...but its been awhile. I won't get much tonight, but perhaps the Easter Bunny will bring me some.

    Disney does sound fun, but only if I could go by myself!! No kids allowed!

    When I graduated I went to my favorite bookstore and bought EVERY book I wanted and had put off reading because I was too busy studying. Put it all on the credit card and then went out for a reading picnic in a sunny grassy park. Fell asleep with a trashy novel on my nose.

    Just a word of advice! before you go out and make the huge purchase pass state boards first. I have seen way to many people buy something big and not be able to get a job because they failed boards.

    When I graduate........ *sigh* will that day ever come?
    I'm going to actually go to a bar, drink a beer (or two), and watch a ball game.
    :roll
    Can't wait for that.

    Thanks for the memories'.....

    quit studying for at least a week.......
    you all know what you know and the boards a piece of cake.....

    take some time away walking, on a bike, in a car, in a plane, on a train...........
    change of scenery.........nursing is a great life......but not all of life...............

    glad for all the new nurses joining our ranks......we need you.........

    Good point biscuit!!

    I miss scrapbooking too, the stuff just keeps piling up....MAYBE when I graduate I'll get back to work on my son's baby book...but probably not

    Let's see here, I don't graduate until next year but I will get a Brand new car. Secondly We will go on a vacation to Disney World. We were going this year but we decided to go somewhere else this year. I also am going to be getting my daughter ready for Kindergarten. She starts in Aug. 2003. Oooh I can't believe it.
