Pageviews past week

I was going to post this on Facebook, but when I got home wouldn't you know that my ISU professor just befriended me! So I'm forced to cower here on my private blog when I'd rather be whooping this from the housetops (or at least the tops of Facebook): I'VE JUMPED THROUGH THE LAST HOOP AND BEGGED FOR THE LAST BONE FROM ISU IN THIS LIFETIME!!!!!! TODAY AT 12:30 I WAS GRANTED A PRINCIPAL ADMINISTRATIVE CERTIFICATE AFTER FOUR LONG YEARS--TWO OF WHICH WERE GRUELING AND RIGOROUS BEYOND WHAT ANY HUMAN SHOULD ENDURE. There I shouted. Now I'm going to slowly gather my life back, perhaps become a decent teacher again, maybe go to movies, or make meatloaf. I'm very lighthearted and sang stupid camp songs to Paco all the way home. Picture me with a singing heart...

CONGRATULATIONS! (There, I shouted for joy with you!) If your experience is anything like mine was, you'll spend the next while...maybe even a month...feeling like there must be something you aren't doing that you should be. After two years of intensive time management, it seemed almost creepy to not have school work to be doing. Take a deep breath and enjoy it!

Yea!!! We will celebrate when you come out next week.

Woo-hoo! Free at last!!!!!
My mom isn't lying....when she got done, Patrick kept asking her why she wasn't on her computer! She used to have to sneak classwork into grandkid time and that was his normal.

WONDERFUL!! I'm proud to call you my aunt-in-law. Do we need to address you with a fancy title now? (btw, the word verification for this comment is "blogin", I think it is a sign I need to get on that)

Shelly said...

Oh, I'm so glad you are finished and you were successful. As I've said many times before, I knew you would do it. Congratulations. Wish we could be part of the celebrating.

May I suggest the following activities for you in the upcoming weeks
1. Read a handful of fluffy novels
2. Watch a mindless movie with all of its sequels ( Planet of the Apes, Beyond Planet of the Apes, Beneath Planet of The Apes,and Battle for the Planet of The Apes)
3. Knit some socks
4. Take a road trip and contemplate what you will do with that well deserved piece of paper.
