I can’t believe where I am at today. I woke up this morning with the realization that I will be attending my very last French class today. Not only that, but in a little over a weeks time I will be graduating from college. A short month after that I will be getting married. Wow. I have been blessed.

I spent the last several days complaining about all the work I had to do, and instead I wish I would have just enjoyed the experience. Yes, I am very tired of writing papers and trying to appeal to teachers that just don’t get me, but this is my last chance to do it as an undergrad student. I will receive a degree, no matter if they like me or not. As I sit here, typing this post, Willow laying in my lap, I can’t help but feel that sense of quiet nostalgia.

So yes, one chapter of my life has come to a bittersweet closing, but a new chapter is beginning. For all of you out there that are interested in what I have coming up next, I’m going to continue working at Wyck’s Place where I do the hair thing, but that is not all that I will focus on. I am going to write and read and learn all I can about the Young Adult market, and I’m going to get published.

I had such a hard time with my decisions this past fall because I didn’t know if I wanted to go to grad school or just work or what I wanted to do. It’s so hard after finishing four years worth of school in 3 years to think about more school. There are quite a few things that I want to get done before I even consider more school. Thanks, Dr. V for reminding me that I am already a writer. I don’t need a piece of paper to prove that to anyone.

So, today is a day of nostalgia, and excitement that I get to get back into the swing of enjoying what I do. I forgot how much I used to love reading because I haven’t gotten to truly enjoy a book in a long time. I promise to keep up from now on, readers, and I’ll keep you up to date on the things going on in my life as long as you keep me updated on yours.

Thanks for reading,
