So it's official. I am DONE with everything Grad school related. I had graduation on Friday and my joint party with Mel on Sunday. It was a really nice party. I was a little stressed and overwhelmed but I'm glad that I went through with everything. It was kind of weird not knowing who knew and knowing that some people knew and didn't know whether to talk about it or not and... overwhelming trying to keep my emotions in check. I am very lucky to have Logan around to leave with me about ten minutes after getting there for a walk down the street. He was there for hugs and hiding my face when I had to breathe for a second and tell me that I was right for everything and ok and acting all right and bring me drinks. He was great. Declan was super sleepy and just cuddling with everyone/napping all day. It was very unlike himself but he seems ok today. A little tired. It was a big weekend... and I'm sure he's been feeding off my emotions all week.
So that is that. I have my MS and now off to the next step. Figuring everything else out. I'm much better when busy and when out of the house so I'm sure that having a million things to figure out is probably a good thing for me. My job is up June 25, our lease is up July 1... and we need to figure out what we're doing and where we're going pretty fast. I'm sure that it will all fall into place the best way possible... but it is a little daunting and stressful right now.
I just need to remember to breathe, be proactive, and rely on the support I have around me and we will get through it all.
On a different note... I think I have decided to use my graduation money for something special and a treat. I could use it for...
*putting towards moving expenses (yuck)
*a trip somewhere (like to Seattle)
*a weekend away for Logan and I
*a new computer
*towards a second car perhaps
I'm not sure yet. Any suggestions?
