Hello World, I live! After a brief hibernation period, I am coming back to the blogging world. It's not as if I haven't had anything news-worthy going on in my life, I have just been enjoying my last few weeks as a care-free college graduate. Until today. That's right, I start my first day of school in about five hours.
How do I put into words how I feel about this experience? I guess if I had to choose just one word, the most fitting word would be numb. I feel like life is happening and I am frozen in time, watching all of these events occur but being able to do nothing about it; I am an onlooker into my own life... and that is weird! Today begins a new chapter in my life; this idea is very intimidating as well as exciting.
Change has always been difficult for me, but once I get into the swing of things life begins it's normal pace again. Or so I hope is the case this time. Uprooting my life and relocating to Columbia was a daunting task; however, not near as daunting of a task as the idea of staying in school for another four years. During my department's doctoral orientation I met a few students who were in their fifth and sixth years of study -- O.M.G. (I learned from some of my gal friends that when you put periods in between words or letters it gives the statement more importance; therefore O.M.G. > OMG). Please pray that I will not find myself in school for another 6+ years. Being in school until I am 28 is already scary enough.
