As you're reading this, I'm probably scrambling around my hotel room, looking for the back of my earring, guzzling down gulps of hot French vanilla-flavored coffee, and trying to fit my portable hole punch in my Tory Burch purse.
That could only mean one possible thing...
Today is Orientation to grad school. First day of the MSN program. EEEEEEK. Hopefully the LAST first day of school I'll ever have. (I think I said that after my first day of nursing school...little did I know that I just couldn't get enough education.) I'm as nervous as a girl could possibly be--I've checked and rechecked my schedule, changed my outfit 3 times, and haven't touched a bite of my breakfast. Nerves galore.
My heart is still a little unsettled with the next few years to come...my prayer has always been for God to open the doors for me (in regards to furthering my education) and He definitely opened lots of them so far this year. I don't know if it's the huge changes to come, the unknown of what may happen, or the jump out of my comfort zone--but I'm questioning everything and anything. I'm just praying for God to lead me where He wants me to go, and I know everything will fall into place.
That being said--I'm super excited about starting school again. I know that sounds like such a nerdy comment, but I bought my books yesterday and even did a little school supply shopping, and it really got me pumped. I love what I do, and I can only imagine that I'll love it even more through this Masters program.
Fingers crossed that in 3 years, I'll be Rachel Dillard, C.F.N.P. Here's to hoping!
Say a little prayer for me if you think about it today. I'll be wading through paperwork, shaking hands and saying my name over and over again, and punching holes in every piece of paper that comes my way! I need all the prayers I can get--I may be 24 years old with a BSN, but I still feel like that little girl with butterflies on her first day of kindergarten!
