One adventure down, on to the next.

Wow, it's been two years. Two miserable, exhilarating, crazy years..... There are so many mixed emotions that follow me at the end of this journey.

I am excited for a new adventure. At the same time I am completely terrified. Where am I supposed to go, what job am I supposed to take. Will I be able to find a job that will allow me to do what I want to do? I just don't know right now. I have a second interview for a job, but have no idea if it is what I want to do.

Licensure is the immediate concern. I am waiting for my degree to post so I can get my transcripts in order and apply for another huge test. I passed one, but have one more. Nothing like paying for the privilege to take a test that will determine the course of my life.

I have a master's degree - essentially - all that is left is paperwork.. That is insane to me. I never thought it was something I wanted to do. And now the idea of learning more inspires and challenges me. I wouldn't mind going back again, but I think I will wait for awhile, my family deserves some of my time right now.

I have a tendency to thrive on stress. My husband thinks I am a stress junkie. He isn't too far off. I love how productive I can be when a little pressure is on me. I love the challenge. Suddenly the stress that has been holding me together is completely gone. For now it is nice. I was able to enjoy things in my life that I haven't been able to enjoy in the last couple years. I still need to pick up a book, but there is time for that.

So now it is deciding where to go, finding a house, and working to collect my letters behind my name... I just need the guidance I have had the last couple years to continue so that I land where my family and I need to be.
