My Final Day

And it’s called that because it’s my last day of my bachelor’s (in Psychology) program today, and I’m taking my last final exam in the morning. I can’t believe I’ve made it through! As I mentioned earlier, I’ll be graduating with honours and I’ve finally been fully inducted into the Society of Leadership and Success.

I’m so excited to be getting my life back. Everything feels SO GOOD right now and I’m beyond ecstatic. There’s a certain feeling a woman has after giving birth. It’s hard to explain, but it’s a feeling of indescribable triumph. As if she made it through death itself and escaped with her life.

Well that’s how I feel. 🙂

Anyway, I didn’t want to go on about all of that again. Just had to jot these feelings down while they’re here, because God knows that those dark clouds are just over the hill and they’ll be rolling in soon enough.

But today, it was beautiful. The sun was shining down and there was a golden-grey glow covering everything in sight, despite the cool rain falling down and splashing on me…

    • Thanks a million and one gazillion trillion, Y! I think I would’ve collapsed a long time ago without you. Think: IRELAND….but in reverse….heheh. I’m so ready to kick my shoes off, let my hair down, and actually learn how to paint. As in- water colours, oils…etc. The camera may be my drug of choice but believe me when I say, I SUCK at painting. But I know I’ve got a painter in side of me screaming to get out. So, don’t be surprised when I start hitting you up over the summer for some help in that arena. ;0) You OWN that arena… by the way, my graduation date is this May, Friday the 13…hahaha….what could possibly go wrong?!!

    • And right back atcha, O. 😉 I can’t wait to tear into this book. I’ve given it some thought and I don’t want to wait until I finish it to review it. Now that I have literally nothing going on (schedule-wise) all summer long, I’m a ideal reviewer because I really will have all the time in the world to read it. So…give me a week or two, and I’ll be posting the first of several summer reviews. ;0)

    • Thanks so much, BB. The past 3 months have been the hardest 3 months of my life. It’s all but consumed me- not to mention the constant string of (seemingly) insurmountable obstacles that have threatened to squash me at every turn. (Shoot. Having lived for 9 months of the past year without hot water was NOTHING compared to everything else that followed.) But I made it through and you will too. You’re so damn close! Hang in there, man. Before you know it, it’ll be OVER and let me tell you, I feel so freaking high on life! I can’t put into words how this feels. Every ounce of stress is gone and it feels like I’ve taken 3 antidepressants at once. It’s like winning the emotional lottery. You’ll see soon enough. ;0)

      Thanksso much for your never-ending support and friendship, BB. I love you too, hombre. x
