all worked out.

In 1 month, I'll be a college graduate.

Woah Woah Woah.

How did that happen!?

Well... I changed my major yesterday to an entirely different department: Interdisciplinary Studies. With an emphasis in education (although I'm pretty darn sure that I could have an emphasis in science if I wanted to, as well...).

Obviously, I won't be earning the degree that I intended. I could just transfer to Old Dominion and continue working on my undergrad. But that's insane. Their program is nothing like WKU's. I'd be backtracking and re-doing classes I've already had.

This way, I can start on my Masters degree asap! I'm sticking with Old Dominion, and I'll either get my masters in Special Education OR Early Childhood Education. I have no idea which one I'll choose. Really. They're tied right now in my world. I love little kids. But I'm pretty sure a SPED Masters would serve me better around the world.

... I wish I could get both. No, really. I do.

On the plus side, I'm 99.9% sure that I'll be walking the line in May. As in, actually BE in the graduation! Shocking. This whole marriage/military/school/long-distance thing has worked out perfectly. It's really crazy. Things just keep getting better. And better. And better.

Admittance into the programs seems easy peasy. I've taken the ACT & I'm good to go! I just need to write a 400-500 word essay on why I should be admitted. I love essays. Again, good to go!

I'm still waiting on "official" word that I may be in the graduation next month, but the lady at WKU seems fully confident that I will! I can't believe I actually made it out in 4 years. Technically, I'm "over" the limit for hours in 1 area. Oops. That's what I get for 18 hours each semester PLUS summer school. Drat. The Dean will excuse my over-achieveness though!

I'll keep ya posted on which Masters degree I choose. Oooooh, how exciting!


  1. Ohhh! I'm so excited for you. How about your life changed so much in just one week! Crazy! You now know where you will be living, you'll be A GRADUATE, and you'll be working on your MASTERS! whoa, baby!

  2. I know... bizarre... and I'm SO ready to move!

  3. Woo, woo! How incredible! Honestly, how many people start their graduate work at your age?! I hope it all works out!:]

  4. God is so good, isn't he?? It's all unfolding just as it should and I'm so happy for you!! Love you!!

  5. YAYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so happy to hear this! Wonderful news!!!
