Stripes: My Big News

(This is me looking off into the awesomeness that is the future.)

I realized this afternoon that a week ago I promised some exciting news but I hadn’t hd a chance to come up with the time to write out a proper post to tell you all about it. Well folks, THE TIME HAS COME.

I got into the paralegal program of my dreams at a really cool university not too far from my parents’ house. 

Which means, logistics aside (like the massive amount of driving to and from home/school/work I’m about to do), that next year is going to be crazy awesome!

Time for a little background on all this, I originally thought the only place near my parents’ house (yes, I’m moving home. yes, it is also an amazing gift my parents are offering me so I can finally save enough money to be completely independent) that had a paralegal program was one of the local community colleges. The classes would have been during the day and did not require any prior higher education (although a BA took one year off the total finish time). The program I ended up getting into is specifically intended for working individuals with their BA which means the classes are all in the evenings and it will only take 9 months to complete the program. Not only will I be able to live at home and go to school but I can get a full time job and save more money than I ever thought possible. So, yes, this is really, really exciting on my end of things.

I’m also pretty sure this fueled a good amount of my frustration toward summer fashion that I was complaining about on Wednesday; I know I am about to transition into a whole new style and self-identity as I transition into a “business woman” and I’m not quite sure how I want to adapt my style into a more mature sense of self. I’m SO excited to see where I take my wardrobe and the person I become in the next year. Clearly a lot of that will depend on where I end up getting a job. While an office setting is ideal, I might end up in a coffee shop or doing retail or something to make some money (and save hella! Seriously cannot wait to be out of the poor college student phase of my life).

Anyone ever become a certified paralegal? What did you think? Any suggestions for things I should do (or not do)?
