I'm graduated!

I have officially turned in my last final for my undergraduate degree! Finals were a less stressful than the last week of class, and now I have nothing to do but pack my stuff (I'm moving back to my old apartment complex) and get ready to go home for Christmas! I'm leaving on Sunday, hoping that the snow storm we're getting right now will be blown out by then. And then I'll come back to UT next Saturday so that I can be here for my nephew's ordination to be a deacon. Yay! Things are looking great!

I'm also starting a "new" job. I'm still working at the NMELRC, and I'm still doing some secretaryish things. But I'm also getting a raise now that I'm no longer an undergraduate, and I'm going to start working on a project for my boss Kirk. I'll be helping develop material for the "Best Practices" resources that the NMELRC wants to develop for teachers who teach Middle Eastern languages. It's going to be pretty interesting, and I'm way excited about it!


  1. Hope you have a Merry Christmas! See you next year.

  2. Ugh. I do NOT like that snow storm, and I'm pretty sure it hates me. It's the same storm that dropped two feet on Spokane yesterday and the day before, which caused my family's flight to be canceled, so they won't be here until Sunday... and today it made Anna's flight be delayed at least, so she may not get here until tomorrow, either. So if it keeps you from getting home, too, then I will officially be VERY ANGRY at it. Grrrr. I'm going to go drown my sorrows in some Junior Mint ice cream...

    Hooray for graduation, and for sticking around the LRC a while longer! :) And hooray for raises, too. And a "Best Practices" project can only be helpful when you start your new TESOL work next year.

    I hope you feel really happy and satisfied with all of the good things you are doing these days, dear girl. Because you are basically amazing. :-)

  3. Good for you!! That is great Merry. I'm excited for you.

  4. Yay!!!! I'm so happy for you! Have fun at home!
