This was Logan before we even left for our journey west, making for darn sure that I didn't leave him behind (once we were on the road, he was inside the carrier that he's sitting on).
Lucky me, I was hired about a week later and started school at the end of August. Kevin and Logan took me to school and work every morning until Kevin was lucky enough to find a job later in the fall.
Everything always falls into place.
I spent my last blog entry recapping my past year... now I'm looking forward and wondering what this next year will bring?
I'm feeling more confident at work than I did basically the entire first year. So that's good.
I hope that confidence follows me to my classes. But the word is, the entire grad school experience is spent feeling like you missed a year of school that everyone else attended. So maybe I will hope for the confidence to "embrace the messy," as my professors say, and accept what I cannot control.
After my first week of school, which happens to be my birthday week, we are going to move to a new studio. I'm pretty excited. This current place has done the job, but I'm ready to leave the apartment life behind and we are moving into a private section of a house. No more noisy neighbors. No Krazy Kids running down the halls. No more urban issues that I'm done experiencing. We'll be in a decent residential neighborhood. The size of our home will be tiny, but I'm excited for the challenge to make the space into a cozy home.
And then... a year from now, who knows where we'll be? I'll be the proud recipient of a hard-earned Master's degree and hopefully employed.
