Still here

The last few months have been extremely busy. January kicked off the final months of university and I am happy to report that I am right on track for graduation in May. That is why you haven’t seen a blog post since the end of December. It has been my goal to make sure that I give my studies everything I have got; persistence has paid off and my grades reflect the hard work.

I’ve also been working full-time, back at the place I love the most, and it has been a lot of fun. It has been so wonderful to work alongside the most amazing coworkers; the students and I continue to have fun each and every day.

Over the last few months I have been busy planning my future. I made the decision in December to apply to the Education Program come September 2015. Last month all the required documents were sent off and now I patiently wait to hear back from the chosen university. I am very excited for this new opportunity and look forward to starting my new career as a teacher in just a couple of years. The students that I work with are excited too – I could possibly be their history teacher by the time they enter into high school.

Life has been busy and I am loving every minute. I still make sure that I plan time just for me to escape how crazy life can be; plans to hang out with friends have also taken shape. It is extremely important to make time to socialize… I promised myself that when I returned to university last year, I wouldn’t make the same mistake I made those years ago – shutting myself out from society and my social life so that I could focus and become a studious student. My time away from the books have been wonderful, especially when I can sit down and watch Netflix (signing up was the best idea ever!).

The next few weeks will become even more chaotic when it will become time to study for the final. I am glad that I have friends and family who understand just how busy I will be and support me all the way. It’s the best feeling in the world when you know they genuinely care about your best interests and cheer for you all the way.
