...My Acceptance!!! To Gonzaga University School of Education!
Ok... So here is the full story:
Getting a Master's is something that I have always wanted to do and teaching was always the career path I wanted to follow. There isn't much else to do with a degree in History! However, then came Shad, and marriage, and law school. So I sort of put these aspirations aside for a bit. Then Shad and I decided that we really wanted to try and have babies, but unfortunately for us that is isn't going to be as easy. As this past year as has slowly gone by, and our attempts to have children have failed. I've decided that this is my only oportunity to pursue this particular dream. I was tried of sitting around feeling sorry for myself and obsessing over this, and the timing just felt right. Shad still has two years left of Law School, and this Master's program is only 13 months!!! (Whoop!) Thus, I mustered up all my courage, and after careful prayer and fasting, we decided this was something that I should really try. And Voila!! ... Here is my official acceptance letter to Gonzaga!! ( I actually found out a week ago with a phone call, but the letter came today!) They only accept 20 people!!! And after 13 months of CRAZINESS and long days I will be the proud owner of a teaching certificate, and Master's degree from Gonzaga. As well as Shad and I buried in student loans up to our ears! Shad and I will both have undergraduate degrees from BYU, and graduate degrees from Gonzaga! Whoo!! This is totally scary, and every day I have doubts weather or not I should really do this. But, hey this is a once in a lifetime opportunity, right!?!
