Today is Thanksgiving…there is a lot to be thankful for. Like many people we will be sitting down to a table filled with food and saying that we are thankful for family and friends. There is another aspect of my Thanksgiving that I want to write about right now, my school work.
I am five days away from completing my degree. It was just a year ago that I was filling out my application to continue my education. Now here I am, just 5 days away from finishing. In four days the bulk of my work has to be submitted and then on Monday and Tuesday I have to submit a few papers. I am really excited, but it really just hit me. I’m not nervous, but this Thanksgiving will be very different for me. We are going to a friend of my husband’s house for Thanksgiving. The great thing is that I can focus on my work, we’ll kinda. I don’t want to be rude and I will definitely talk and have fun, but I’m bringing my books, my ipad, and my laptop.
I am praying that God would help me complete all of my work on time. I am really excited about closing this chapter of my life and moving on to the next. Last night, I had a dream that I was in a classroom with a bunch of other students. We were all working on a project and then the professor or teacher, announced that there was a job opening on the staff. They were looking for a new teacher/professor. I could feel myself get excited. I raised my hand, to let him know that I was interested. Before I could see what was happening, I woke up to the sound of Leo barking because he wanted to go outside. Got to love Leo. I do…
That was a really great dream. I am super excited! I know, I’ve said that already, but I am. I have been working on my degree for a long time. I’ve been back and forth between degrees as I worked on my double major. Then finally when we moved to Utah, I decided to simplify it into one degree. Now I am finished, well almost.
The amount of work that I have to do is a lot, but I am going to give it my all and finish it up. No procrastinating or waiting until the right moment to read or work on the papers. The time is now! Then I’ll get to eat some great food and meet some nice people. I do look forward to the activities of this day.
