I Checked Out Around Fall

Personally, I feel if college were three good intense years, I'd graduate a happy woman.  With this last year, I honestly see no reason to be here.  I've finished my major and I have one course to finish the minor, and if I could just take that course and be done, again, I'd be happy.  It's not that I want to do the least amount of work possible, it's that I want to do pertinent work, for lack of a better term. 

I'm tired of going through the motions of college, and I think I'm ready for real life.  The first semester, I was into the work and I knew I had to do this for a good goal, but now, "just get through it" isn't doing it for me.  I don't want a cookie, per se, but a piece of paper doesn't seem like a good prize.  I'm graduating at apparently the worst point in American Economic history, excluding the Great Depression, and that doesn't have me too down, although it's not a great pick me up. 

Thing is, I feel bad that I don't care, which is contradictory, but I find myself asking "why?" Namely why am I in a liberal arts college, and of course it's to make my family proud, but that's not doing it for me either.  College has helped me in decision making; I do what I want usually when I want, and I'm eternally grateful for the first 3.5 years, but May feels like it's eons away.  I just want to don the cap and gown and give my college the most heartfelt finger I can.
