(Almost) A UVM Grad

Its quasi-offical..I've completed my undergrad! I finished my last exam a few minutes ago. It feels really will feel better when I get my grades to make sure that I didn't get a D in anything...but hopefully I will have a diploma by August. Finishing something that I started almost eight years ago takes this huge weight off of my shoulders that I have been carrying around for quite a while now. Now all I have to worry about is reaching my goal weight by the party so I can wear my fabulous party dress from Some Girls!
I haven't really touched on this yet but I wanted to let everyone know what a lucky person I am. I have a lot to be thankful for but this journey would not have been the same if I didn't have my husband by my side. He is such an inspiration and a rock, especially with the healthier lifestyle aspect. He gets up every morning at 4:30 to go to the gym, always makes his lunch for the day, and keeps me on track when I need it. Going to the gym with him on the weekends extends my usual routine by at least a half an hour, sometimes more. If we weren't doing this together I think i would have fallen off course by now. He is also super supportive with everything else, helping me study, making sure I did my homework, reassuring me that people in HR departments don't have a personal vendetta against me, and keeping me grounded in general.
No luck yet on the job front but I have been offered an opportunity to take on a temporary team leader position at work for six weeks. If anything at least I'm moving in a positive direction and it will look good on a resume. I went to a job fair (which made me soooo nervous) and had a really great discussion with one of the recruiters, so maybe that will turn into something, if not at least it was a good experience.
I guess that's it for now...since my schedule has been freed up a bit for the summer, hopefully I'll be able to post a little more often. Thank you all again for the support!

  1. There is no D in your future! I'm so happy for you in finally finishing up those lingering loose ends!
    I hope Chris reads this, what a wonderful tribute to him...something we usually take for granted and never say the words.
    But even the greatest motivator can not move a rock so give yourself lots of credit...YOU are doing it!!
