I'm alive!!

Quickest way to sum up my absence:  broken computer.
I haven't really needed to fix it because A) school is done and B) I have an iPhone.  But posting and reading others' posts is a pain in the tuckus from a phone. 
What's happened since I've been "missing":
* I graduated but still had internship hours to finish. 
* I finished those hours
* I finished up the nannying gig at the end of August
* I was unemployed for two weeks
* I was "under-employed" working part-time at Hallmark for two months
* I am now employed full-time!!!!!!!!!
I'll try to post more but I can't make any guarantees

Copy cat

I told BabyGirl to go put her boots away. 

Maybe I should start to put mine "away" a little better

on a more personal note

Graduating:  It's something that I have looked forward to more the past two years. If you asked me two years ago, I would have told you that I had no desire to "walk" in the ceremony.  I was going to do my work, get great grades (because I was an adult now and there was no reason to *not* get great grades), and learn what I needed to become a counselor. 

However, in the past six months I can't believe I ever felt that way. I have been so excited about graduation and the opportunity to "walk" with my friends.

Friends from Grad school: that's another thing that has changed in the past two years.  I've written about this before, so I won't get into much detail.  But man, am I glad things didn't turn out that way.

Even the people that aren't my "friends" are very much still my friends.  Of course, it is inevitable; we have discussed such intimate details of our lives and feelings, how could we *not* end up caring about each other.

I think there's where the bittersweet part lies.  I know that I will stay in contact with my "friends" but what about all my other classmates.  I won't be seeing them twice a week anymore.  I won't even be seeing them one a week.  Will I see them ever?

I may end going through MHC withdraw.

Wait, what?

So today was the day; I graduated.  

glitter makes it official, right?

Most, but not all, of my cohort

It's a done deal now
Me & my parents

Sums up exactly how I feel!

Now, maybe I can be better at writing real posts and not half-assed ones from my phone.

My job is done

So, lately I've been obsessively listening to the full version Les Mis in my car.

Today as we drove Master to school, I realized that both Master & BabyGirl were happily singing the chorus of "Do You Hear the People" along with the CD.

My heart melted.

First world problem

It's been summer-esque here in Upstate New York. And today starts my new schedule of three days at the clinic instead of four; so I get to stay at work all day with no where else to be.

I really wanna sit outside during nap today but my allergies are kicking my butt. AND I left my Kindle at home so I have nothing to read.

What a hard life I lead.
