I know it has been awhile since i posted an original “Lauren” thought so here it is, long-awaited but epic nonetheless …

It’s official, as of Thursday April 28th, at approximately 9 am I finished my degree. The fact that I have finished my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology still hasn’t quite sunk in, probably when I go for convocation on June 3rd it will be realized. But for now it feels good to be done.

I did receive my acceptance for the Post-Degree Education Program at the University of Alberta… I know its in Edmonton, but I think I’ll survive as I only have to be there for 2 years but the University is amazing up there.  So at the end of May I shall be heading up there with some family members to hopefully find the apartment for which my life will continue on in up there.

This summer I shall be doing the S.T.E.P program through the AHS again which will give me 10 weeks of steady work as I wait for the CFL season to start-up again so that I can see my Stampeders in action before I head to our rivalry city. Speaking of rivalries, I have decided that instead of going outside my apartment to enjoy hockey or football festivities (unless I have a group that will protect me) I shall create my own “C” of Red in my apartment so I shall be protected from Oilers and Eskimos fans.

I am just excited in general, moving on to a new phase in my life, it will be different living on my own in a different city. I say this because I have lived in Calgary my entire life so it is a lot of change, but I have no doubt that it will be quite the experience. Now I just need to befriend some people in Edmonton so that I have people I can do Bikram yoga, watch sports, and other fun endeavours with unless all my Calgary friends want to constantly road trip up to check up on me haha.

How can you tell if it is progress….

Well for lack of more eloquent phrasing the beginning of this year has been ridiculous, but not quite Charlie Sheen ridiculous close but not quite.

6 weeks left in my program and believe me I am starting to feel the heat but the assignments, tests, and personal strain will be worth it when I am holding that piece of paper in June.

I am also looking forward to this semester being over so I can focus on my businesses and gain some personal and residual income in my life. So my goal is to work both of them, GWT and Passion Parties.

This year will then hopefully end or continue on in a much more peaceful and prosperous fashion than in which it began.

I am also waiting to hear back from the universities I applied to for my post degree education program. I am really hoping I got in to the ones I am hoping for because I really have not made a back-up plan for what I am going to do if I am not accepted anywhere…. maybe I shall start to formulate one.
