The Uncertain 2013

Sunday night I found myself back in my apartment, back in the snow (*sob*), and back to school for the last time.

It's really strange, because your whole life you go to school. You keep on thinking of all of years and time you have left, and how it seems so impossibly far away. School will never end, it seems.

Now here I am with the last semester of my undergraduate degree and all I can think is wait, already?!

Granted, I'm applying for a master's program, so that's another two years, but still. Even that feels like school's practically over. Plus, I'm so incredibly anxious as to whether or not I'll actually get into a program. So in addition to the looming presence of my current lifestyle ending, I have very little idea of what will be in the future. It's not a feeling I've had before and not one that I particularly care for.

Do you have any recent changes coming up? What's been a big uncertainty in your life?

  1. With four kids, every day is an uncertainty for me! Ha ha. ;) That is so awesome that you're applying for a master's program. I really wish I could go back to school, but then I think about it some more and I'm okay with where I'm at for now. Maybe some day... Good luck!! :)

  2. I remember feeling the same way, and I didn't feel better until I had my acceptance to the master's program. Then after I earned my MA, I had more feelings of uncertainty until I secured my teaching job. It never ends, I'm afraid... :)

    Good luck with your semester!

  3. You'll love grad school! It's a whole different experience with exposure to new types of people, etc. I'm really excited for you :) My biggest change is that I've got a little one coming any day now, so I'll have a 4-year-old and a baby and two teenagers at home. In a small house. Could be a noise challenge, and I'm guessing the teenagers won't appreciate the baby crying. That said, I'm really looking forward to meeting my new daughter!

  4. What Dana said. The uncertainty, the possibility of change never ends. We've been pretty stable but just recently Hubby decides he wants to look for a new job and we're thinking of turning in adoption papers again. Could be some big changes this year.

  5. I just finished my masters program this December. I'm officially done with school. It is the strangest thing in the world. Also, incredibly scary. I now have to go make a living. *shivers*

  6. Jenna, Congrats on your last semester and good luck with the master's program. Every day is uncertain in a way, but that's what makes life exciting. As long as you follow your heart in your journey, the next steps will fall into place.

    Best of luck!

  7. I remember this feeling so well. I think I actually had a bit of a quarter-life crisis after graduation, because I was afraid I would never have fun or friends like that again.

    You will be happy to know that this is not the case! And good friends will stick with you no matter what--even if you don't see them for years and years after graduation.

    Good luck on the next chapter of your adventure--whether it's your masters program or otherwise. You have so many more life stories to write!
