As I got on the bus to take my last final exam at Iowa State this afternoon, I couldn’t help but feel exhilarated by the glares I received for my stand-out reflective shades and faux bob. “Who does this bitch think she is??” is what crossed the mind of every Iowan I passed… or at least I would expect. I’ll admit, Iowa isn’t exactly the ideal place to experiment with your style without constantly receiving judgment, which is why I am so excited to be graduating on Friday and moving back to Chicago on Saturday. Although I will sincerely miss the campanile’s ring every quarter hour, late night quesadilla man on Welch, and getting dressed up for chapter every Monday, I can definitely do without being hated on by Minnesotans for being a Chicago sports fan (let’s go Bhawks!!). These past four years have been a wild ride and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. I’ve learned so much about myself and others, and this “bitch” made it to Magna Cum Laude. So any Iowans who have judged my appearance can suck it because I DO know what I’m doing, and I have the Bachelor’s of Science to prove it!
