Great news!  Grad school is officially done!  Unofficially, I have to write a paper for my Capstone adviser but otherwise, I’m done!  Graduation is on Sunday and will be really nice.

Even with all the excitement, I’m having a bit of a “What Now” crisis.  The residency thing didn’t work out so I don’t have solid plans for the immediate future.  I started applying for jobs but am only starting to get time now so that is slow going.  In the meantime, I figured I should work on things I can control.

  1. I can apply for jobs.
  2. I can write a killer paper about my project.
  3. Being at home all the time, I can prepare amazingly delicious, healthy meals.
  4. I can get a workout daily.
  5. I can do things I enjoy but haven’t had time for (crafts, sewing, etc.).
  6. I can spend more time with friends and family.

If I look at it that way, being in limbo isn’t so bad!  For the meantime anyway (really, no one wants to be unemployed).

As a kick off of my newfound freedom, I spent the day yesterday with my friend Callista who I have been friends with since 7th grade.  We went shopping, had lunch, walked on the Atlantic City boardwalk.  The usual friend stuff.  I got a pretty new dress for graduation Sunday.  She got some new maternity clothes for baby baking round 3.

Overall, it was a pretty awesome day.  We got to spend lots of time together, I ate really healthy all day, I got 15,000 steps!  So I’m doing pretty darn well on my new goals already Winking smile

On that note, I am going to get moving and make today awesome too.  I have to work my last shift tonight in Philly so that will pretty much take up my whole day but I can get a ton done until then!
