Relient K, uncertainty and knowing everything will be just fine

Hi, my name is Rebecca.  And I am addicted to planning.

PlannerI’ve been a planner for as long as I can remember.  I’m the girl who picked out her college major during sophomore year of high school… and stuck with it.  I’m the girl who plans her finances dollar-for-dollar so she can afford that one special “item” (for me, it’s usually a pair of shoes I’ve been drooling over) months from now.  I’m the girl who starts writing her two-page assignment weeks before it’s due.

As a planning addict, it scares me that I have absolutely no clue what life will bring after I graduate on May 15.  I had a small “wow, I’m graduating and have no clue where I’ll be in a few months” moment while discussing the job search, moving and taking an internship vs. holding out for an entry-level position with my mom this past weekend.

Although I don’t know what the future holds, I do know one thing: It’s going to be great.

Relient K is one of those bands that “speaks” to me.  I’m pretty sure the group follows my life on Facebook and Twitter and writes a song for every situation I’m facing.  When I went through my iTunes library this weekend, I found these Relient K lyrics were a reflection of this “season” in my life:

A year’s passed since I wrote this song. A lot’s gone right; a lot’s gone wrong. But I know that Jesus has been there right by my side. And I see the sun still shines. It shines outside and in my life, and I know that everything is gonna be just fine.

So to all you graduating seniors out there: We have a bumpy road ahead of us.  However, PR’s 2010 outlook is optimistic, and I am confident that we’ll be rockin’ the PR world in no time.  Just know that in the end, everything will be just fine.  🙂

  1. How about this rK song?

    And thats why i say
    Oh no, not for me, not for me
    Call it torture, call it university
    No, arts and crafts is all i need
    I’ll take caligraphy and then i’ll make a fake degree

  2. That’s an excellent one, too. I just love Relient K!

  3. I consider myself a planner too and even though I changed my mind about my major when I was in college, part of my life plan was grad school and here I am. But I think as you get older, planning everything sometimes takes the fun out of life. As scary as it may seem, not knowing what the future holds is a lot more exciting than knowing exactly what the future holds. My advice is go out and experience the world; move to another city, travel, be young and enjoy life because as John Lennon says “life is what happens to you’re busy making other plans.”

    • You make a great point, Christina. Change is inevitable, and opportunities can slip away if you have narrow vision. I’m just going to enjoy the ride!

  4. Now that’s the positive Rebecca I know and love! Sit back and enjoy the ride, my love. God works in mysterious ways and will lead you to where ever you’re supposed to be 🙂

    • Awww, thanks Lauren! Keep us updated on your lovely job search! 🙂

  5. Rebecca,

    I ran across this post on Twitter today and just wanted to compliment you on it! It sums up exactly how I feel about graduating this May. Thanks for the post 🙂

    • Thanks, Kim! I’m glad you were able to relate to it!
