According to my calculations, I have completed and submitted all of my requirements for my degree! Wahoo! It's been a long semester, but a rewarding one. There were times where I didn't think I was going to make it, but somehow I managed to get all the assignments submitted before the deadline.
I've learned more than I ever thought possible, and it's quite surreal to think that it's all over. It's been a few days since I finished and I still feel like I'm missing some deadline or I have something I should be doing. ha ha. Maybe that feeling will go away over time. :) Right now I am enjoying slowing down for a while, and Jesse and I are planning lots of fun events and sweet times with friends.
I'm excited to start cooking and being artistic again. I lost my passion for all those things simply because I was so busy and tired. BUT! Get this, I got a bread-maker for free! Long story short, we found a puppy while we were garage-saling, knocked on all the neighbors' doors, and one happened to be my husband's bosses house. While there I noticed he had a bread machine for sale, and he let me take it home! Meanwhile his 3 year old son dubbed the tiny maltese puppy "Eclaire." I thought it was appropriate. Altogether it was a very rewarding afternoon, although sad when we had to give the puppy back to her family. I never thought I'd fall in love with a dog! (let alone in just a few short hours.)
Maybe I can coerce Jesse into spending a grand on a puppy for my graduation present!?
Hopefully I will have more exciting updates for you all soon! :)
