This part and journey of my life is coming to a close. My last post highlighted what a huge blessing leaving my last job was, ironically it seems like this next chapter is also coming to a close. It has been such a blessing for me to be surrounded by people who advocate and respect the quality of work I provide. With that being said, this abyss is coming to a sharp end.
I will be focusing the next two weeks on my graduate school interviews. I am interviewing with my first graduate school next Friday and I’m not too sure how to approach the interviews yet. This has been something I’ve delayed and postponed for six years and it is finally here. Can you believe it? I’m not sure why I took so long to take this leap but it was very much necessary for me to do it. I needed the time to explore and understand what it was and is that I want in my career. I’m going to spend the next month focused on how to get into the necessary schools instead of worrying about things that I can not control. The week afterwards, I will be flying to Denver for another interview! I’m actually really excited to interview at Denver because the state is so beautiful and seems like an environment I could see myself thriving in.
My Dad is having open heart surgery October 31st. He’s been getting more ill as he ages. Its brought so many emotions. I am only 29 and he is not even 60 yet. A part of me aches and believes that he will not grow to see me graduate with my doctorates or start my family. I feel so young yet so old at the same time. Pray for me?
Love and light,
