Tomorrow I start my last semester of school... my very last forever. Of course I'm excited to be finishing up. Getting through school has been really, really hard for me, though. I've never really liked school, except for the occasional classes that I'm passionate about. But this semester is a little different. I will be taking 18 credit hours, plus two Institute classes, equalling seven classes and an internship. Luckily, I saved enough money last semester that I don't have to work, which is a great blessing! I quit my job (another, more thorough post about that after my last day...) but I will get to do a couple weddings during the semester, which I absolutely love! I will also get to teach a class at my gym, which will only be maybe one day a week.
This whole experience will be so different, and I'm very nervous. I haven't been jobless in six and a half years, and that scares me a little bit. I'm praying that no major expenses come up within the next four months and that I will be able to make it through.
Another thing that makes me nervous (now please, don't laugh) is a few of my friends and I have decided that we want to have date nights at least twice a month. I haven't been on a date since I started working my job last August. So pathetic, I know, but there just isn't much time when you work nights! Now that that job is over with (or will be on tuesday) I will have a lot more time to spend with family and friends and meeting new people.

Lots of changes, lots of drama (in my eyes) and a lot of unknown... but hopefully a lot of good will come out of the next few months!

P.S. If anyone has ideas on FREE dates (seeing as how my funds are pretty much non existent) I would be very grateful for input!

hmmm, I'm guessing you don't know the person who commented before me?... Anyways, free dates - sledding! Watch a movie that you or someone else already has, MAKE a movie (that's always fun), scrounge around the fridge and make dinner, um..... play games..., build a snowman, have hot chocolate, sound scavenger hunt (you need a tape recorder for that).
