When I was about ten, my mom handed me a book from American Girl called “The Care and Keeping of You 2” and told me to talk to her if I had any questions. I proceeded to read through 96 pages of information for girls who are about to go through puberty. When I finished it, my mom asked again if I had any questions. I apparently had no trouble accepting that I would soon be shopping for bras or bleeding out of my vagina, and I had only one: “Mom, how do I know if I have an eating disorder?”
I graduated last Saturday!
I haven’t received my diploma yet, but I am officially done. That makes me the proud new owner of a Masters degree in Engineering Management.
More importantly, however, this makes me the extremely excited owner of infinite free time. Or so I tell myself. Realistically, I still have a full-time job and spend 2-4 hours at aerials classes every day…
BUT GUYS. I HAVE MY WEEKENDS BACK.
So that means I suddenly have time to cook all my meals, keep my apartment clean, hang out with friends, train for a marathon, AND still have time to binge watch Netflix every once in a while… right? 🙂
Today, one of my coworkers was instructed to delegate a task that he was assigned because he’s got a lot on his plate. So he sent me a message saying “hey, I’ve been told to delegate this task and I’m pretty sure there are zero people in the company who have relevant experience with both of the things involved in it who aren’t you. Can you do it?”
Of course I said yes. And then I felt really special, cause there are a lot of people in the company and being the only one who literally anything is a pretty big deal. Realistically it’s just a coincidence due to my current and former positions, but regardless, I felt awesome.
Killin’ it. 😀
Yesterday was the first day of my last semester of grad school.
Whoooooooo! Almost done. 🙂
I applied for graduation from grad school today. So, yeah. That’s a thing next semester.
I started a new job last Friday.
I still work for the same company, in the same building and on the same floor, even under the same director, but it’s new and it’s a promotion and I also got a raise and I looooooooove it. A lot!
Earlier this week I found myself sitting in the middle of a sea of spiders. And no, it wasn’t a nightmare and I’m not going to end this story with “and then I woke up”. It actually happened, in real life. And I survived.
