Grad school here I come!

Life changed for me today in a good way. I got accepted into grad school and already received a $500 scholarship. I am officially a student at the University of Texas. I turn my NB portfolio in soon. March 31st to be exact. Start Grad school the last day of May. Take the last 6 assessment center tests for NB in June and find out if I passed NB in November. I hope that when all is said and done this makes me more marketable when I choose to leave the district I am currently with. Surely someone with 5+ years of real life experience, 2 bachelor degrees, a master's degree (in a year) and NB certification (cross your fingers) can get their foot in the door? Oh and somewhere in there I want to take a vacation with the h and be debt free. We are close to the debt free part. No house or car payments. We have an e fund with $1000 in it and only one credit card with debt. While it doesn't make sense to go on a trip when we're trying to become debt free a girl can dream right? This blog is a cluster mess of thoughts, sorry!

What a day

Today has been a wild day. One of my really good friends lost her father unexpectedly. I spent a couple of hours over there with her. I hate not knowing what to say, so I usually don't say anything. But then I hate sitting there in silence too. I also feel badly because I usually end up crying. Which completely defeats the go and be strong stance I try to take. If there is a silver lining to death, she knows where he is and she knows she'll see him again. Good night!
