First, I GRADUATED!! Finally! It's been a long, hard, and financially difficult road, but the hard work will soon pay off.

Next, I passed my boards! Yay me! I've never had much test anxiety, but boy, did I have test anxiety that day. Actually- that whole week. I've never experienced such a weight being lifted off my shoulders as I did after walking out of that test, feeling like I had passed that sucker with flying colors. And I did.
Soon after, I got an official license as a pharmacist! I've been working my for-real-adult, grown-up job for almost two weeks now, and.... it's different. I love the feeling of being "off work" when I'm not at work. As a student, you never really feel like you have time off. There is always something to be studied.
On the other side, it's very odd not having a huge goal to work towards. Sure, I'm working on saving for a house. I have a goal to run a half-marathon in a few weeks. But, I feel like I should be learning something with some of my time off. So, I'm considering taking classes in spanish, or becoming a Certified Diabetes Educator. Maybe both. We'll see.
I got an IPAD!!!! Yippee! I've been glued to the thing every moment that I've been home since I got it. I haven't been so productive in real life, but in my internet-browsing life, I'm way ahead of the game.
Brandon and I are going to Chicago in less than two weeks to run my first half-marathon! So, I've been attempting to train for that...
Saving the best for last- I'm going to be an aunt! Anniston Ruth is due on October 18th, and Kelly and I have been spending a large amount of our days shopping for the essentials, planning baby showers, and making sure that she gets to sleep in the cutest nursery ever!
