I feel so blessed, thankful, grateful, and truly humbled that the University of Washington in Seattle has accepted me to their MSW program. I have neither accepted nor denied either offer. Both schools are incredible, and I am in the middle of making pro/con lists. St. Louis is looking pretty good right now, but ideally I would LOVE to live in Seattle. I can't say the same about St. Louis because I've never been, but we'll see come April when I go visit.
Friday I should know something about a possible scholarship to WashU in St. Louis, and hopefully I will be awarded something. Keep your fingers crossed for me, send prayers/good vibes my way.
I am currently sitting in Brew Ha-Ha in Baton Rouge listening to an Open Mic night. Tomorrow I don't have to go to work (YAY!). Instead I am attending an excellent school visit in New Orleans. I am excited to see what a well-functioning school looks like. A school that fully supports their staff and students, and a school structure that doesn't have the issues of most schools in our rural parishes. I will miss my kids tomorrow, but who doesn't love a four day week, right?
Life is busy, busy, and full of things to do lately. That's a good thing, most days...I keep toying with the idea of staying in Avoyelles next year, but deep down I know that's not where my heart is leading me. I love the kids I teach to death, and if I continue my life elsewhere I am very excited to return next year for the graduating class of 2014. Most of the kids I taught last year and this year are graduating next May. I already have some asking me about coming back for their graduation. The answer is, "ABSOLUTELY!" I will shed tears of sadness and tears of joy.
- I went to my first crawfish boil this past Friday(!)
- I may or may not have met someone who is worth talking to and spending time with(!!)
- I will be spending some days in Austin the week before Easter! Let me know if you'd like to meet up, more than likely I'd love to see you ;)
