Quite A Week

It has been quite a week. And it was even a short one! Wednesday and Thursday were not the best days in the world, but there is no use complaining about them now. After a long awaited phone call (ok, I waited 24 hours, but it seemed like a lifetime) I found out that I am really going to graduate in three months. : ) Three months! Of course, that really doesn't mean much because I'll still be in school for a while. I'm excited though. Ready to get my piece of paper.

I had to add another class. That brings me to 7 classes this semester. I hope I make it. Anyway, I needed three more hours and it didn't matter what I took, I just needed something. I picked up a social work class called Grief and Loss. I missed the first class because I just signed up for it on Wednesday, which coincidentally was the second day of class. Thankfully the professor let me in. The class is like nothing I've ever taken before. My first class (the second for everyone else) we sat and talked about the five stages of grief (denial, anger, depression, bargaining, and acceptance). After we went through those we watched the movie Tuesdays With Morrie, based on the book by Mitch Albom. And I cried through the whole thing. I had never seen that movie before, but it was so good. One of our required readings for the class is The Five People You Meet in Heaven, by Mitch Albom, which is an amazing book. I'm actually really looking forward to this class and I am really hoping I can help myself along the way. With the difficult issues I've been tossing back and forth in my head lately, it seems like I was meant to take this class. I think this is exactly what I need right now to help myself move into the next stage of my life. It is a strange moment when you realize that it all is going to work out. Sometimes it is hard to deny that things really are supposed to happen and that there is a reason for everything.

I have been slacking off of my posting. Hopefully I'll be able to pick back up on it now that this week is over. I'm thinking these past two weeks will probably be my most stressful, but check back and ask me in two and a half months. : )
