that's right - i am. i finally heard back this afternoon and am completely accepted and enrolled and whatever the fuck else i need to be for university of phoenix. my first classes actually start next week.
i also feel the need to point out that i heard my father say he's proud of me for only the second time in my 30 years on this planet, and it didn't even really make me tear up at all. i guess i'm finally getting over my father's lack of fatherness. or i just don't care anymore.
i'm all signed up to get my associates degree in early education, so i can be a sort of teacher, like a teacher's aide or sub or what not. i'm hoping to somehow work with gifted children eventually. i went to a special gifted program when i was in elementary school, and really loved it aside from the fact that it made me an outcast with my classmates in my regular, every day class. so maybe i can get involved with that kind of program and help show kids that it doesn't fucking matter what your friends think about your gifted ass - you fucking rock just the same.
so here's to me being awesome and rocking the hell out of school. now i'm going to go celebrate with awesome husband.
