The hardest semester of my life is officially over. I look back on it and still can't figure out why it was so hard exactly, but it was definitely exhausting. Even though I've gone through some major changes, I still feel like this has been one of my happiest times. It's rewarding to go after something that you know is right for you even if it doesn't seem like the most obvious choice. It was a pretty big deal for me to leave UVA and start completely over in the middle of my masters. Though, it was really nice to realize within my first week of classes I had made the right choice. I feel so much more competent, motivated, optimistic.. My work experience has been great and it must be working out on their end as well since I was offered a raise yesterday.
Anyway, here's to Virginia Tech! Guess I'm somewhat officially a hokie! I had a great time celebrating with my friends last night.. they've made such a huge difference in my experience here.
So here's to them! Cheers!
