I am approaching a strange time in my life, a time where major life changes are right around the corner. Over the last two months I had to go through the grueling process of applying to and interviewing at different school districts to obtain an internship placement next year. It was such a crazy, stressful process and I am glad that it is over for at least another year. However now that I have secured my first year-long paid position, I find myself plagued with a major case of senioritis. My fiancé and I have been living three hours apart since we decided to go to separate grad schools and in the summer we will be bridging that gap when he moves down to live with me in the Richmond area. I find myself daydreaming of decorating an apartment together, looking up summer festivals in Richmond, and researching possible housing options. I am beyond excited to be starting this next chapter in my life. This is the “real life” that I have been waiting to start for so long. I just need to get through these next few months of papers, readings, and tests first!
