I knew I was in for a good week when Melanie arrived at the office Monday morning and wanted to know if I had time in the afternoon for a 'Beginning of Season Treat' -- that's right, not only do I get to work with one of the nicest, most talented people ever, but we have TREATS at the beginning of wedding season and at the end! So, most of my work day Monday was spent getting a f.a.n.t.a.s.t.i.c. pedicure next to my lovely employer!
Then, this afternoon, I found out I've been accepted into the Communication Disorders Program at UK! (Yes, I already have a bachelor's degree, I've been admitted as a Pre-Requisite Student, which means they allow me to take a year's worth of courses so that I will be able to apply to the graduate program.) If all goes well, I've got about 3 more years worth of school ahead of me to become a Speech-Language Pathologist! (the master's in teaching was sort-of a plan B if I didn't get into CD)
I haven't actually gotten the paperwork yet, but I called the Admissions Office this afternoon and the nice lady on the phone told me that the packets had been mailed out Monday and that she couldn't tell me anything.......except, "Congratulations!" Yippee! I started crying and thanked her for making my day.
FINALLY, I feel like I have some goals for myself.
