Finally Done

April 25, 2012

I’M DONE WITH SCHOOL!!!!!!!!

I can’t believe it. I’m finally done.

I still haven’t wrapped my brain around the fact that I will no longer have to wake up at 6:30a every Saturday and Sunday. My Monday nights will be free and I can come home from work like a normal person and have dinner with Travis and relax. I almost don’t remember what it’s like to have a life without school and work. For that matter I won’t be flooding the blog with boring “woe is me” stories about being tired from class or not having a break! I’m excited about that for sure!

I can’t tell you how grateful I am to have had the past 13 months in my life and what all I have learned, not only about esthetics, but also about myself as a person. This past year has been a major learning experience and I have taken so many lessons from it that I will be forever thankful.

The bittersweet end to this journey is the beginning of my life as an esthetician. A career and passion of mine since I can remember. Being in the seventh grade and having my science project breakdown the different DIY masks from pantry products for various skin types. (It was way better than the pulley system the winner of the fair made, but whatever;) And now after many years of soul searching finally being able to be in a career and job that I love.

I’m sad to not see my friends every weekend, but we will forever be in each other’s lives. I never expected to take away so many great memories and experiences with such a great group of women that only a year ago only considered classmates. After being together for over 1000 hours they have changed my life for the better and I refer to them as friends that I love. We’ve helped each other grow little by little and shared laughs, tears, frustrations, and leaned on one another when we felt nobody else knew what we were going through.

I am also thankful for the love and support of my Travis, family, and friends over the past year. I haven’t expressed my gratitude like I should, but I am blessed and couldn’t have done this without the encouragement they gave me. I had days where I wanted to give up and they helped me realize that the light at the end of the tunnel only got brighter and not to give up.

I’m so excited about the next chapter of life and what is next. School may be over but there is still so much to learn and I look forward to it!

Congratulations!!! I’m am so excited for you. Ending school is always bittersweet after forming a bond with your classmates…. but you’ll keep in touch! I’m going to South America with a couple of my old grad school classmates.

Now that you’re FREE we need to all get together for a celebratory meal/drink!

Congrats! I still get that worried feeling Sunday nights sometimes – until I remember there’s no homework at work. :)
