I might actually have a degree by the end of this year

I mean, given my track record, I wouldn’t hold your breath, but still. I’ve been officially re-accepted, and I’m in the middle of filling out the FAFSA, and my email has been reactivated. Hooray.

Have I mentioned how much I hate Lipscomb? Oh well. Maybe they’ll have changed some since 2006. It HAS been four years.

So today/tomorrow I have to file the FAFSA and email Dr. Reed. And possibly Dr. Hearn. Oh, boy. It was so nice to not have to think about this stuff, but I suppose paying off the student loans will be immensely more gratifying if I actually have a degree to show for it… whether I do anything with it or not.

So there’s your update. I might post more later. I don’t like to think about it that much.

And, just because it will come up eventually, I’m going to do EVERYTHING I CAN to keep from having to participate in a graduation ceremony. But, there will be a party. In theory, of course.

I'm a young, childless widow who is trying to figure out the best way to deal with the world in light of my late husband's suicide. It's harder than I ever imagined it would be, but somehow at the same time I am still alive and even happy sometimes.

  1. I’m glad we’re friends! I’ll come to your party, and I feel like this time will work out. Have I told you that I have JULY off? Because I do. Just saying.


  2. I’m coming to the party too, right? !!! There should be things like pina coladas and margheritas at the party, and, also some swell food.
