A few months back, I mentioned that the Communication’s Director at my university had contacted me asking if I’d be interested in writing an article for the school magazine. This article was, much to my excitement, to be written about me and my blog. Uh. You want me to write about ME!? Yeah, I can do that. I was also asked to write another article for the magazine, about a school-related topic. I was happy to oblige to both requests, and I cannot tell you how thrilled I was that the issue was finally published and making it’s way through the Concordia campus this Monday. It was really neat to be able to hold in my hands something that I had a chance to be such a part of; Reading my words and seeing my picture in Concordia’s magazine was a pretty amazing feeling. I’m just really grateful to not only be able to attend a university that I love and that allows me an outlet for pursuing my interests, but to attend a university that seeks me out, asking me if I’d be willing to share my interests with them. It’s a bittersweet feeling, knowing that I’ll be graduating this year.
I think my husband may have been even more excited than I was. After showing him the articles and seeing his adorably giddy reaction, I left to go to work or school or something. (It’s hard for me to keep up. I’m not really home that much nowadays.) By the time I came back, the two articles I wrote were framed and hanging up in my office.
Sigh. He’s sweet and I’m kind of smitten with him. And my university. Actually, I’m just smitten in general. Sometimes I just want life to freeze itself until I am done basking in all of it’s current awesomeness. This is one of those times right now.
