big things

big things are happening.

for me.

a month or so ago i applied to graduate. it's kind of weird that you have to apply to graduate. i thought you only applied to get into school.

but, i had to apply to graduate. which will officially happen in may.

i will graduate college in may.

i guess technically it will be the second time. but this will be the first time i walk. i graduated from community college in may 2010 with my associate degree, but i didn't walk. i'm definitely walking this time, though.

a few weeks ago i got accepted to graduate school. i'll be going to school even longer {i may be crazy}. i'm really excited, though, and i know it will pay off. i'll still be at belmont...yay! i really do love belmont and all of the friends i've made there. and even {some of} my teachers.

and, to add to what i'll be doing next semester, i got an internship!

i'm really excited, and equally nervous about it.

i didn't know if i'd be able to do an internship, or even if i would get one. i decided to apply to a couple part time ones that were posted on belmont's career site to see if i would get any interviews. i figured if anything, it would be good experience to interview. i ended up getting an on-campus interview with one firm, which led to an interview at the firm. and that meant i needed a suit. cue crazy suit search. but it was successful and i got a suit that i love. and i'm kind of excited to dress business casual 3 days a week. don't know how i'll feel when i have to do that 5 days a week. i am sad that i'm going to have to take out my nose ring. it's not really a ring, just a stud. barely noticeable. but i don't think that's acceptable in accounting. i'm planning on taking it out in the morning and putting it back in when i get off work. every day. we'll see how long that lasts. {i'm sure my dad is hoping it doesn't last long}

anywho, next semester is going to be crazy. super duper crazy.

i'll have 2 undergrad classes {all i need to graduate!!!!!!}, 2 graduate classes, and my internship 3 days a week. and of course being a mommy 8 days a week, 30 hours a day. lots of mommying over here.

i'm nervous about being an adult. having a big girl job. juggling something else on top of what i already am doing.

so i will officially have no life.

i'm ok with it though. it will be totally worth it.

Like you said, it will all pay off in the end. Is it possible for you to wear a clear retainer? Normally you can apply makeup over it and it's hardly noticeable
