*Cues AC/DC x Back in Black*

Back in black

I hit the sack

I’ve been too long I’m glad to be back….

*Cuts the music*

Okay, but seriously y’all, I have been gone too long and I cannot even contain my excitement as I type this sentence right now. Your girl is done with graduate school! Do you hear me? I am d o n e . The ship has sailed from the Sunken Place and I am not looking back. “Free at last, Free at last, Thank God almighty I am free at last.” Talk about a trying time! Never ending research, failed research, approved research, tiring research,  I am just glad it is over research. It feels like the weight of a million men has been completely removed from my shoulders. I sip this full glass of wine without a care in the world. I was once fearful of the unknown and what the future holds, but now I am just……ready. Everything they said I wouldn’t do I did, and everything they said I couldn’t do I conquered. It has definitely been a long time coming, but with passion and determination anything is possible. Late nights, early mornings, restless days, tears, more tears, emotional break downs. I was going through it. Anytime someone asked me how was graduate school I had to hit them with that “Lets talk about something that matters,” in my best Joanne the Scammer voice. Lets just not go there okay? All in all, working full time and going to school full time I never asked for an easier load, but a stronger back. I am truly blessed to hold this degree and I cannot even begin to express in words how thankful I am for the support system that I have. Y’all are the real MVP’S for real! I don’t care if it was a simple “good luck on your exam,” text. It was greatly appreciated and your actions did not go unnoticed. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart! I typed all this to say I’m back y’all! I have a few things I want to post soon, but I do know a few followers/readers who have suggested topics they wanted my insight on so if you are that person just leave a comment of the topic on this post and we can get down to the nitty gritty. I would be more than happy to throw my two cents in on it. Y’all know I am good for stirring the pot every now and then. *obnoxious wink* Before I go…..this Kendrick Lamar album thoughhhhh.
