It's finally over
So the academic portion of my course work is finally complete and I am on to fieldwork. I am proud of myself for managing two A's this quarter to finish with a 3.6 gpa. After our final presentations our professor did one of her own reflecting on the two years we have been together and everything we accomplished, and survived. To recap for those of you who don't live in Rhode Island, we survived the flood of 2010 just after starting school our state was underwater for a week. Later that year we missed a class because of a fluke October snow storm and got buried for the rest of the winter in snow. Outside of crazy weather we had five babies born to our class (my baby included) two weddings two divorces and lots of fun times. Reflecting back I can't believe how quick it came and how slow it seemed to go by. I can't wait to start fieldwork next week as I know I am ready. As my professor said to us in our reflections,
Dr. Seuss says it best, “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where you'll go." And on to fieldwork I will go.
