I have heard the best news I have heard in a long time. After nearly 5 months, I AM MEDICALLY qualified! I will be contacted by my placement officer soon. ON to the next step. This is becoming more and more real as time goes on (:
Read part of the letter below (click on the picture):
After months and months of having a bunch of test run, and doing everything to fulfill medical requirements. I am finished! After FIVE looooong months. I want to scream!
I spoke to my Dad, who has always encouraged me to follow my gut, and he’s taking me out to celebrate. I am so grateful to have a fantastic support system.
I am so close to dream. I had a period of time when I was in doubt, but doubts can hinder you. I am definitely headed in the right direction.
….Or as I like to call it,”Explore unique Hobbies” time!
DO THIS: (1) drink cranberry juice with whipped cream and Oreo crumbs sprinkled on top*
(2) Watch “The Big Comfy Couch” in the dark at 2:00 am
(3) Prepare to feel like a CHAMPION.
*Drink with your pinky raised. It won’t work if your pinky is not raised. trust me.
Seriously though. waiting sucks. I have SO much time until my *departure* date (Peace Corps). I think the antsy-ness I’m feeling is making me a little bit cray-cray. So, I’m going to fill in that time by volunteering, learning to play the ukulele (two years after I bought the uke), and applying to a sh*t ton of paid AND unpaid internships, cause I have standards (HAHA).
UPDATE: I figured out how to get my cap to fit on my head without betraying my natural hair. I did a twist-out. It twas extra cute…
Its been 4 long years. I will be graduating in 2 weeks!! That is insane.
My class size is only about 200 (probably less) and we threw a very awesome Senior Gala. I wore a white and black halter dress and I looked pretty dang good in it. 2 weeks and I will no longer be a college student. 2 weeks and I will be entering the “real world”.
College feels like an endless, awesome sleepover. I’m going to miss this freedom. I don’t know if there will ever be a time like this again. I danced, not caring what I looked like (see my post about my awesome dance skills). I had a Blast.
TWO WEEKS and I will have a diploma that says I earned something. Two weeks and I have so much to figure out. I’m ready (: Looking forward to the PC. Looking forward to whatever life brings me.
