I'd rather be swing dancing


Not gonna lie...I felt like swing dancing in this outfit.

But, alas, swing dancing was not on my schedule.  Instead, I went to class and took a test.  A long test.  Meaning I wrote for 2 hours and 20 minutes straight and experienced intense hand cramps.  All in the name of education, people.

Luckily, I won't have to endure to many more hand cramp-inducing exams.  I found out today that my transfer credit got approved.  What exactly does this mean?  I can proceed with my degree as scheduled, and, after my summer class finishes in, oh, 17 days (who's counting?), I'll have just two more classes to take in the fall...and I'll graduate in December with my Master's degree!

I've been in school for over 18 years now, so I kind of feel like my education is my child.  I've nurtured it, watched it grow, and soon it will be time to release it into the real world and see what happens.  It's made me proud thus far, so I can only hope that it will continue to do so.

Then I can get a real job and afford to take up swing dancing.

Rock step, anyone?

You look like such a pin up girl. Cute. I feel you with the test thing. I did one last week from 8 to 2. It was way too long.
Cheers,
Bre

Thanks, Isabella! The skirt is super old...I thrifted it a couple years ago, and who knows how long the previous owner had it! :)

I did always love the retro vibe of pinups - thanks! Ouch on that test! Mine wouldn't have been so bad if it was typed, but it had to be handwritten. I had severe hand cramps by the end of it!

@MyDearJenn

Thanks so much!! I've been working really hard, so it's going to be such a relief when I have that degree in hand. I plan to be a professor at a junior college, so it's going to be quite an adjustment being on the other side of the classroom!
