New plane new game
Just as I finished unpacking from Chile, I began packing for Aruba.
My friends keep calling me a 'world traveler'.. something that absolutely
shocks me considering I'm the worlds worst flyer. For some peculiar reason,
the one who hates flying & the act of traveling the most seems to be doing
the most of it lately. Its funny how things work, huh?
Regardless, I'm excited to spend some time in the sun with my parents.
As soon as I get back from Aruba (Jamaica, ooooh I wanna take ya), I'll
be quickly transitioning into adult life. I'm excited to begin my job in a
local summer school program, but I can't help but fear that I'll be saying
goodbye to my childhood for good. Trading out the short shorts for business
apparel, and the all-day plans with friends are slowly becoming strictly dinner
dates (which is totally okay with me because it includes food) is slowly becoming
a reality for this girl. I'm beginning to accept it though, I can't be a little kid forever.
(I am however, going to see the Rolling Stones this summer so I'll probably be a
little kid again for that night (: ).
Whats next whats next
Next begins the planning of grad school... which I'm probably going to be in for awhile.
The more that I'm surrounding myself with the politics involved in education, the more
it interests me. Right now, the tentative plan has drastically changed from Columbia University,
which was the original plan for quite some time. As much as I would love to head to the city
for awhile, I'm thinking that I want to involve myself in the SUNY system as much as possible.
I'm planning on trying to land an internship of some kind in the SUNY Headquarters in Albany, NY.
If by some miracle I can make this happen, I'll be attending SUNY Albany where I'll more than
likely be entering the Curriculum Development and Instructional Technology masters program,
followed by the Educational Administration and Policy studies doctoral program.
AKA, I'm never entirely growing up because I'm going to be in school for the rest of my life.
I'm so sad that this may (or may not be) my last post, so I hope that all that have been
reading will stay in touch! Don't be strangers :)
Love positively absolutely no doubt about it always,
