Hi, guys! I’m about to road trip my way on over to Louisiana for the weekend to have a much needed mini-vacation with my best girly friend and my husband. Excited! But right now, I’ve actually found myself in the possession of a moment to spare (Gasp!) and thought I’d use it with a life update blog. Ahem:
My best friend and I were playing catch-up on the phone the other day when I told her I had never been so busy in my life. Her response was, “And that’s saying something. Because it seems like you’re always very busy.” Uh-huh. I am scrambling lately, y’all. I’m taking 18 hours this semester and was thinking that I’d have to take 9-12 hours this summer to graduate in August. I got my degree audit back and would you like to know how many credits I need to graduate this summer? Four. As if that isn’t silly enough already: A P.E. and an elective. I couldn’t help but laugh when I figured that out. You would think this would serve in making my life less hectic, but it’s resulted in some kind-of tough decision making. I really hoped to finish up my last months at Concordia, but I’ll be saving a lot of money and time by taking the classes at my local community college instead. Besides spring final’s week, April will be my very last month at my university/home-away-from-home of nearly three years. Through all of this hustling and bustling, I am really making a conscious effort to savor the last moments of my Concordia college life.
I registered for graduation on Monday. Besides that excitement, I have been presented with a few really neat opportunities in the past few months that have been keeping me busy when school isn’t. I have virtually zero free time right now, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Goals are being reached and dreams are coming true and stuff. My schedule is crammed, but it is crammed with doing things that I love. Life is insane, but it is also wonderful.
I received my first letter of recommendation from my favorite professor the other day. It made me happy. In closing, I thought I’d share with y’all my favorite little bit.
“In addition, I find Christina to be a mature and intelligent individual. She has taken the initiative to write op-ed stories for local newspapers, which have generated some impressive responses from readers. In every class she’s taken with me, I find her to be engaged and willing to learn. In particular, her writing skills always keep her at the head of her class.”
