And the Countdown Begins....

Wow! What an awesome feeling it is to wake up this morning and know that in just 2 short weeks I will be done waitressing forever. Well never say never but...

I was talking with my aunt this morning and we were discussing how fortunate I am to have been given the job that I really wanted. I know there are plenty of people out there with degrees who are stuck in jobs that they really don't want simply bc they can't find something in their fields. I am blessed to have been given this opportunity; the thought is not lost on me. I am not a very religious person but I did pray over and over again to get this job. Now that I have it, I have repeated thanked HIM.

I know that I worked very hard for what I've accomplished but I have not done it alone. There is something else out there working in my favor. I won't name it because honestly I am not entirely sure what it is, but I must acknowledge that there is something bigger than me out there.

Ok enough of the religious stuff. I am so freakin happy I could bust! This weekend is exciting as hell for me. Today is the St Patricks day parade in Pittsburgh and that's a HUGE deal in this city. Of course its raining but the show will definately go on. Pittsburgh hosts one of the biggest st. Patty's day parade in the country. Just think next year I'll have weekends off and actually be able to attend the festivities!

Monday I get to walk across that stage and be given my degree! I get to show my family and friends how hard I've worked. I am gonna cry like a baby but that's ok. It will be a happy cry.

thanks everyone for the wishes and prayers; they worked!

    I'll be thinking of you on Monday.

    And smiling!
