Seriously, this is the question of the semester.
What are YOU doing after graduation?
I kid you not, everyone I sit by, everyone I talk to wants to know what I’m doing once I graduate.
I’m sure it’s just the natural curiosity of a social worker, but remember what we learned in 303? Boundaries, people! Okay, I’m getting worked up.
Here’s the toned down version.
This semester is the semester I’ve waited my entire college career for.
The past six and a half years have all lead up to this exact semester, the final chapter.
I got a little teary eyed last night talking about the end of this semester.
Thinking about how both Brand and I will be graduating from something.
I’ll be getting my Bachelors and he’ll be getting his masters.
Don’t think I haven’t already thought about the cute pictures we will take in our cap and gown outfits.
So many things that Brand and I have done have taken time, and I have learned so much from it.
Finding new jobs, going to school, finishing school, applying to new schools, working our bums off, I feel like these past few years have been such a test for us. A good test that is.
I’ve learned patience, how to de-stress, how to choose to be happy, to love, to be understanding, to pray, to listen, and mostly I’ve learned to trust my Heavenly Father.
Anyways, my answer usually tends to be somethings like: Oh, well I want to be a mom, but I think this summer I’m going to nanny and after that I don’t know.
Sure I get weird remarks, but can’t I just enjoy this time?!
I am so absolutely excited for May to get here and to feel the weight of school be lifted off my shoulders.
