Big Things Poppin

Thank you, T.I., for the blog post title. Whatever You Like will always be my favorite song of yours though.

That being said, there have been some relatively big things going on here... and some more coming  I hope (fingers crossed, eyes crossed, legs crossed, toes crossed, excetera).

I have been searching high and low for jobs in Charlottesville that pertain to what I want to be when I grow up (well, for the time being anyways), and sadly, a job is not the big news.

I have been dating Stuart for three years and there has been some ring talk. But nope, not yet, no shiny thing on this finger. :)

Howwweeveerrr, I have just submitted my application to a GRADUATE SCHOOL!!! This was totally not in my life plan at all at this point, but all of the stars aligned for me and I could not be happier!

Hopefully, in the spring, I will be attending Kansas State University's M.S. in Academic Advising program. Y'all, after looking at the classes, I think this is going to be so much fun. (What? Y'all don't think school is fun?)

Praise the Lord, it is an online program so I don't have to carry my happy butt out to Manhattan, Kansas. Although, I would definitely love to visit. I have never been to Kansas.

Besides having a perfect program for what I have been and want to be doing... my bff Eric Stonestreet aka Cam from Modern Family is a proud alum. We will likely be besties by the end of next year.

Perhaps he can teach me to dance?

Or maybe to pull off biker shorts?

Is he not adorable and hilarious? Probs my favorite Modern Family character other than Manny. Manny just gets me.

Whatever it is, I am going to need them to accept me so this all can happen... and that degree. The degree would be useful. 

So some prayers, good vibes, whatever you got... if you have some extra, send them my way :) Y'all have a great Thursday!

Great stuff!! Hope it falls into place for you, indeed. Although, the phrase “Mangattan, KS“ to me seems like such a massive contradiction in terms I‘d genuinely want to go there!

That's awesome! Definitely crossing my fingers for you. Cam and Manny are my faves too. I was always a little "too adult" when I was younger. I can see myself in him, haha!

Haha, just kidding. I was kind of freaking out, too until I read the online. I really want to go back to grad school but ugh I just love my nights to do whatever the heck I want to!! Hmm. One day. In what? No idea. Saying a prayer for you right now!! I'm sure you will be great and if it doesn't work out... He has a plan!!
