But, I have a toddler and falling asleep isn't an option at 6:00 in the evening.
I met with my presentation group yesterday before class and I think we put the finishing touches on everything. We present our lesson on Thursday and then take our final and then I am done-done-done. Well, for two weeks. Then I will be student teaching. Somewhere. Still praying on that one.
I also met with my advisor yesterday to do a final check before student teaching and graduation preparation. She said that I am set to go and not only am I set to graduate but I am graduating with a double endorsement! English/Language Arts and Social Sciences! Plus, I will be extending my certification through the middle school grades--not that I have any desire to teach those grades--but I can if I so choose. Go me! I have worked so hard and fought through so many obstacles to get to this point.
After meeting with my advisor, I got to take my paperwork to the Registrar's office and hand in my application for graduation and pay the processing fee. It's official.
I have been looking forward to this for so long. And I remember when I was first going to this University, I would look at my study plan and think that this stage of my education was *so far* away.... and now, here it is. I don't understand how some can decide not to walk during graduation. Maybe I'm a sap but isn't that the moment that you work so hard for? It is for me. I may bend down and kiss that stage.
I just know that there will be one heck of a celebration after! And hopefully a job to celebrate too.
