School's Out Forever!

So it maybe took me a semester past four years but I finally graduated!

It hasn't really set in yet, but I am sure that when school starts next semester it will hit me. I think it will be amazing to do what I love and not have to worry about homework at the same time!

I did my final presentation for my capstone last week and my team rocked it (little shout out to Jeanette and Marianne for all their hard work this semester)!!! It was the culmination of four months of hard work from research to brainstorming to a lot of designing. I feel like the client was really pleased with our work too!

So I'm at a crossroads in life. BYU has offered to let me stay on as a graduate assistant and I am going to stay there until I find the right job for me. I'm really lucky to have a place that I can work while I transition it this quasi-adult life.

It will be sad to leave BYU behind and it will be unbelievably scary to leave everything that I have grown to love in these past five years.

I'm incredibly grateful for an institution that has really shaped me into who I am. I've learned so much while at BYU from an educational standpoint and I've grown in ways I didn't see imaginable.

But part of growing up is taking risks and jumping out into the world that is daring to eat me alive.

So here I come world (I say in a really dramatic stance because it's easy to have that stance from the comfort of my little Provo world).
