After 20+ years, it’s finally coming to a close. I’m ready! Graduation is so close I can taste it. I’ve been too busy to get excited…until now. I am there. 21 years of school is no small feat. I have watched friends graduate, start jobs & make real money, start families, and move beyond the classroom. I’m ready for that. (Just wait, soon I will want to go back to school, but we will cross that bridge when we get there.) I’m just thankful that for the time being, this chapter of my life is coming to a close. It’s time to take everything I’ve learned and give back to the community.
So what’s next? Graduation is in a few short weeks. I will wrap up my internship here in South Carolina. Then we’re moving home & I’m becoming a school psychologist in the fall. I’m interested to see how things go, as I’ll be working in the school district I grew up in. Overall, we are just excited and blessed for the opportunity to be close to family and do the work we love.
Graduating classes of ’09, ’12/’13, and ’16, here’s to you. To all the AP courses you took and the clubs you joined in order to get into a good college. To all the
nights of cramming hours studying and writing papers to get into your dream grad school. To the days you thought you’d die from all the work and the nights that made you feel alive. This is it. We’ve made it.
