Back in October, when I first introduce myself to you, I had a blog entitled “Nothing could top last weekend” I was happy to do cool things like meet celebrities, receive some recognition at work, and of course….to begin blogging. I am happy to say that my final blog is ending with some pretty amazing news as well.
After two years of a lot of hard work, I finished my master’s program. When I looked at my grades I was surprised to see STRAIGHT As! I haven’t had straight As since 2009-2010, when I was a sophomore in my undergrad years. I worked hard, but I thought for sure I had a B in there. It was a great way to finish off the program.
Last Monday, I received a call from a job I interviewed for, and I am happy to say I GOT THE JOB! Because of that, I will be leaving Chicago and moving out to Aurora in the fall.
After finals, I went straight to D.C. to see my mother! She came back temporarily from Afghanistan. It was great to see her because the last time I saw her was in July.
Once the group fitness summer program at UIC is over in August, I will be leaving this place for good. I am so grateful for everything I learned and gained at UIC. Six years is a long time to stay in one place, at least for a military brat it is. I am happy to be leaving on a very positive note.
Thank you, UIC.
