A Looooong time coming

I finished. I finished something that has been quite the undertaking for me the last 17 years. Blood, sweat, and tears went into finishing my educational journey. Journey is an understatement. I knew there was a light at the end of the tunnel - since I had seen friends and family finish. I just didn't know that it existed for me. Being an educated woman was always my goal. I just never knew how many things could get in the way of it becoming a reality. I kept going, and I kept thinking that one day I'd really finish.

A week ago today it ended.

I, Erincita, became a graduate of Utah Valley University. After 200 + credits, I really did it.

This chapter in my life is now over :)

What's next?
