back to school. back to school to prove to daddy...

HOLY COW. This semester might most possibly be the death of me. Classes started on Thursday and after my first class i already felt super overwhelmed. BUT there is something about an intimidating classes that can either motivate me or do the complete opposite... discourage me and in the end I tend to give up. I am hoping that it will be the first one. I am an idiot and decided to take 3 upper level psychology classes. yippee. BUT on the upside I signed up for this class which is for those who are potentially looking to become a counselor after getting their Bachellors. Kind of a a little blessing in disguise. My professor mentioned that this class would be equivalent to a beginning course in grad school. I have actually been thinking a lot about going on and getting more schooling to become a counselor. So I guess this will help determine if that is indeed something I want to.

So although I think this might be the hardest semester of my life I think that it will be the most rewarding. But I guess school isn't always about fun... studying should be a huge part. Welcome to college Rachel-5 years to late!

maybe i still am a caterpillar? just a little bit. maybe.

I think I like the "idea" of a blog more than actually keeping my own up to date. I was just browsing through some of my friends and I can't help but feel a little insecure about my own little blog. Everyone is just so dang wity and profound. While I like to devote mine to picture I am going to turn a new leaf and try to actually give this "blogging" stuff a try. So here goes...

Monday I head back to college for my very last semester...well at Idaho at least. While for YEARS I have been counting down the units until I could finally leave what I thought was an empty and lonely state. Why is that I always find myself looking to the future rather than trying to enjoy where I am at? All I can say is that it gets old and I have been trying my hardest to love myself and what I am doing here and now. BUT I am not going to lie I have been anticipating this semester for a long time and now I have butterflies going crazy in my stomach. I am just so excited and yet so scared. What the heck am I going to do after I graduate? Where will I go? What do I actually want to do? Is maybe a masters in the picture? So many exciting options to keep open. I keep begging everyone around me to figure it out for me but truth is I actually get to be a grown up and pick my own path. YIKES. How exciting!!!!!!!! So hopefully I will keep you updated on this next few months on my journey through life!!!

So instead of trying to be profound and wise I thought I would leave you with this little quote:

"Just when the caterpiller thought the world was over, it became a butterfly."
