I’m slowly pulling myself out of the injury/recovery hole, and I can see the light! I’m starting to fill my schedule with more appointments and activities and am enjoying being more active and productive. I can even drive now and should be completely cleared to take my leg brace off next week.
And, ohh god; I chopped my hair off. 8 inches to be exact. My stylist went a little scissor happy, but I’m not the type of girl that gets all worked up over my hair (it grows back you know). Anyway, it looks fabulous, but it’s taking some getting used to. I also got some blonde-ish highlights to brighten up my face.
In school news, I’ve been so busy. I’m joining Beta Alpha Psi to get more involved and boost my resume. It’s going to require a lot of community service hours and that I attend lots of meetings over the semester. Those commitments, along with school and my internship that starts in a couple of weeks will keep my schedule really full.
Also, I’ve decided to take the plunge and get my masters degree. I’ve been applying for scholarships to offset the cost and network my way into a graduate assistantship in the School of Accountancy. I think grad school will prepare me more to take the CPA exam next year and give me the most career opportunities in the future. I know I’m smart and work hard, so I want to make sure I make the most of my time in school.
It’s absolutely out of my comfort zone to put myself out there this much, but I know I’ll regret it one day if I don’t.
