Class of 2017 & 2018
On Friday I am driving home and celebrating my last semester of classes EVER. That is both surreal and incredibly exciting. I will miss Berglund Hall and the many, many hours I've spent going from room 145 to 147 or vice versa. But mostly I will miss seeing our professors and all of the amazing people in my cohort every couple of days. Next semester my cohort heads off to our externships as we prepare for comprehensive exams and graduation. This means some of us are leaving the state and will not be seen nearly enough.
These people have been the most amazing support system a girl could ask for. I am so freakin' grateful for every single one of them. My grad school experience would not have been the same or nearly as fun with any other mix of humans.
This fall has been one of the best. Usually fall is the hardest season for me filled with transitions, hard classes, unruly weather and uncertainty, but not this fall. This fall was filled with the best clinical placement I could have asked for, the perfect mix of weather, interesting classes, spontaneous trips, new commitments and really investing in my community.
Spring will be challenging but the graduation at the end will make it all worth it. I can't wait to see all of my cohort in one place again and hug them for an uncomfortably long time. :)
You guys all have my heart.
