I just finished my last exam of my last class for my graduate degree.
I. AM. DONE.
I did it!
I finished my Masters degree in two years taking classes full time and teaching two classes on top of that for the last year.
I am not sure of my final grades for this semester yet. I might get a B for the first time in a class; yep, I'm gonna brag: Pending grades this semester, I have a 4.0.
AND I did it with two kids. HA!
Ok, I know this sounds like a braggy, self-glorifying post but I am really really glad to be done and I am so proud of myself.
Because these last two years have been so hard.
Like anxiety-attacks, constant-back-pain-from-stress, going-crazy, want-to-scream hard.
But I did it. And I did it well.
I am so happy.
I had to fight tears when I was talking to my supervisor, Mrs. Towles, about the weight of this accomplishment. She had kids when she went through grad school. And she knows what a big deal it is.
Thank you Aaron for encouraging me (in your own way) to do this. And for letting me be a crazy woman in pursuit of a goal.
Thank you Micah and Benji for putting up with a cranky mama for the past two years. I will try to work on being sweeter and more calm.
Thank you Nicole and Brooke and countless other babysitters who watched the boys for me. Without you, this degree would not have been possible.
Thank you Kalina, Chelsea, Amberley, Kellan, Mom and Dad, and Nonnie for telling me how proud you are of me and for encouraging me to keep going.
Thank you Candace keeping me sane on our Thursday night dates.
Thank you God for helping me through every reading assignment, every paper, every late night class, every worrisome moment when I just thought I couldn't do it anymore. These past two years have been for your glory.
I DID IT!!!!
