Six years ago I became an "adult".
I graduated from USC, got my own apartment, and started my career at Large Consulting Firm.
My graduation day was so fun!
I got to attend the main USC graduation with the Mr.
And I got to walk at the Annenberg School of Communication Graduation with three of my sorority sisters.
You can follow a couple of them on Twitter. Erin works for CSI NY. And Robyn works for TV Guide. They both tweet a lot about TV and life in the entertainment industry.
I said goodbye to beloved sorority house. "We'll be Gamma Phi's together and when we're gone
There'll be Gamma Phi's here to sing our song."
And then I drove down to San Diego for a fun graduation party that my parents threw for me.
The next week I moved into my first "adult" apartment in Manhattan Beach (4 blocks from the beach!). Here's my old room and living room.
The apartment was a 2 bed, 2 bath apartment and I shared it with my best friend from college. You may recognize her from here. Here's a picture of us from the housewarming party that we threw as soon as we were settled.
I loved that apartment.
I turned 22 a month after we moved in. I felt SO old and mature. Now I realize I was such a baby thing. The Mr. and I celebrated my 22nd birthday at Panchos in Manhattan Beach.
(Don't we look different!?)
The Mr., my roomie, and I had SO much fun that summer. We went out all the time to local South Bay bars and restaurants. We were adults with jobs and money and we were determined to spend that money!
It was such an exciting time. Our first taste of adulthood. Seems both like forever ago and yesterday.
