What's been going on around here?
1. I officially finished my program in April 2014. It feels like it's been both a lot longer than two years and not nearly that long all at the same time. The last 14 weeks of my last semester involved three days of school and two of placement. Graduation is on June 10; and while I am excited to be done, it's also sort of scary to be done...two years of my life are gone, and it's a little frightening to not have that routine anymore.
2. That being said, it is exciting to have been hired on at my placement after it was over! Yes, I was hired...as in an actual paying job in the field I was studying in! It's only part time, and it is not where I want to be long term, but it is a open door into the field. I can only go up from here, and I am SO thankful to the doctors that I work for for giving me a chance.
3. R moved in at the beginning of May. Things are going really well with us. Technically we only started dating on NYE...but we dated for a year or so before I had Everleigh...so it wasn't like starting over with someone new (people always tell me that 5 months is far too fast to have him move in with us). It was more like slipping back into a really comfy pair of pants. Familiar and comfortable.
