I'm a College Graduate (Unofficially)
Today I took my LAST final!!!


While it won't be official until mid-April, my advisor confirmed that I have no more classes to take!!!!!

So, after 23 classes (in 21 months), I can now relax.

Happy Dance Time!



P.S. I could not have done this without the support of my family and friends (yes...that includes you!). Thanks for listening to me gripe and worry. Your encouragement and empathy made me feel like I was not alone on the journey.

Congratulations!!!!!! Doesn't it feel amazing? It feels more official when you see your degree. Make sure you frame it and put it up, people should SEE it!

Yes, I'm still a bit in shock. This term was more stressful than any others. This was such a long week too, with two finals and one standardized exit exam. I got emotional when I called my husband afterward. Such a load off. I'll feel better when my grades come in, but I feel like I did better on the finals than I did on mid-terms.

Regardless, just being able to wake up in the morning and not have to do research or study will be so amazing!

I have my knitting needles in my bag beside me...waiting...
