Yay to blogging

I think you and I are going to get along oh mighty blogger!

I can't get this blog off my mind! Firstly, because I am super overwhelmed with the technicalities and wanting to fill it up with all my goodies and secondly because I'm so freekin' excited to share my life with everyone!

My life, at the present moment, will put a toll on this blog because I really do not have as much time/effort as I would like, to make it spectacular! But I promised myself I wouldn't forget about it and keep it up to date as much as I can :D

You see, I'm a grad student (studying a Masters of Communication) and it requires my full undivided attention (even when I don't want it to be). Even when I'm trying to forget about everything that's going on, it's still in my subconscious yelling at me, reminding me of the things I have to do. Not fun.

Not that I'm am trying to complain, even though it is a challenge, but let's just say I will be extremely thrilled, but grateful, when this year is over. I say this now but I know in my heart that I will always be a student. I love school.

It's weird. I know. My entire family doesn't know what to think of me. I'm going on my seventh year of postsecondary education and my father so much as finished grade nine in high school (however he is probably one of the smartest men I know). Not to mention I am the only one in my entire family (including parents, siblings, aunts, uncles and all my cousins) to get a university degree. This is not me bragging. This is me praising both my successes as well as the success of my entire family as they are all gratefully successful.

I've tried to figure out why I'm so different than my entire family. Why I love school so much and why, in my twenty-sixth year of life I'm terrified of being finished and entering the "real" world. I think I'm so comfortable with the student experience that I feel I will be rusty in the professional world. We will be sure to find out I suppose.

Anyways, I've learnt A LOT this year being one of ten students in my program. I've made some incredible friends as well as some well deserved foes. I hope to share this experience with you in more depth over the next couple days. I think it's especially important for anyone who might be considering taking on the stressful, but extremely rewarding journey of going to grad school.

That's all for now.

Peace and Love,
