some exciting news!

7 Aug

Good morning!  Today I have some exciting news to share with you.  I posted the above picture because it makes me feel so cheerful and happy – just like the news I am about to share!

This has been in the works for awhile now but yesterday I signed up for my first graphic design classes!  I am so excited and can hardly contain my joy!  I am never one to get very excited about school (actually I REALLY don’t like school) but this time around I think it will be different.  After talking with the director of the program and reading through all the classes, I think it is a great fit for me.  I have been considering going back to school for awhile but it was never been the right time or the right program.  But now is the time and I can’t wait!

Jonathan and I decided this year would be a perfect year for me to go back to school since we are in a very random transition in our lives and will only be living in Oregon for a year before we move again.  Also, Jonathan is doing his intern year of Residency this year and traditionally, this is the hardest year in all his training.  Because we know this year will be so busy for him, I thought this would be a good time to be in school since I will spend a lot of time at campus and on homework.

I am a little nervous too.  I haven’t been a student for a long time and I think it will be weird being back in the classroom.  But I believe this is exactly where I need to be right now and I think this is the right challenge for me to take this year.  Have you ever been afraid of doing something but feel it is exactly what you need to do?

So cheers to art and new beginnings!  I hope you have a wonderful day friends.
