Life Goes On

Tomorrow is my last day of full time work for an entire year. I am nervous, excited, and relieved. I will be finishing my MBA full time starting August 27th and the fact that I have a definite graduation date is probably the most exciting thing going on in my life right now.

I am looking forward to waking up in the morning and NOT having to drive an hour to work.
I am looking forward to preparing most of my meals at home.
I am looking forward to getting ALL my reading done and not having to worry about cutting into work time to do it.
I am looking forward to controlling my own schedule for the most part and enjoying life outside of a cubicle.
I am looking forward to exploring options that I never did because I was working for Company X.
I am excited about having a daily schedule that isn't going to be tainted by last minute requests from my boss.
I am excited about enjoying the fall foliage and studying outside or in a café or in my home office. I am thrilled to be able to smile and know that I am making the most out of my life.
I am excited to be able to get back to writing, blogging, thinking, analyzing, wondering, and breathing.
I am excited to have a solid fitness schedule that can't be ruined by work.
I am blessed to even have the opportunity to be accepted into an MBA program and be able to have the resources to work part time and go to school full time.
I am blessed to have a beautiful home and a support network that encourages me throughout my endeavors.
I am looking forward to having a simpler, less expensive, less stressful life.

I am looking forward to me.
