I am literally ten days away from finishing my master’s degree. I can’t hardly believe that I’m almost done. I got an email from UTA about graduation today and now it feels really official. It is time to RSVP for my graduation tickets and order my cap and gown. I already ordered my class ring and it should be here in a couple of months. It so hard to believe that this time two years ago I had just applied to grad school and I was waiting to find out whether or not I was accepted. My mom told me today that she would love it if I went ahead and got my PhD. I’m not sure I’m up for that but it is something I may consider at some point. My life is so different today than it was a year ago. I am sad that I’m taking the last part of this journey without my dad but at the same time I know I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for him.
On another note, I am now only three days away from my date with the ex. Well I’m calling it a date. I asked him to go to a Halloween party with me. He said that he would as long as he didn’t have Rangers tickets. Well the Rangers lost tonight so I guess he’s stuck with me Saturday night. It’s weird because we haven’t been around anyone else since we’ve been talking again so I’m really nervous about him going to the party with me. I know it is a little silly because we spent last Saturday night together and it was amazing. I don’t want to rush anything with him and I don’t want to make him nervous. I just want to have a lot of fun with him at the party and then fall asleep in his arms Saturday night. I may not get all of that but I can’t help wanting it. Love is strange sometimes.
