last first day

Today was my last first day of school.

Even as I type those words I can’t believe it.  It’s taken me a long time to get here.

Thirteen years.  Thirteen.  Years.

Granted, I didn’t go to school that whole time, but from my first day of college in August of 1998 until my last day in December of 2011, it will be over thirteen years of overpriced books, late nights of studying, and all-nighters before the big test.  Most people in school that long are doctors.  I will be an accountant.  Not even a CPA.  Just a regular old, run-of-the-mill accountant.  A 31-year old college graduate looking for her first job.  And you know what?  I’m so flippin’ excited I can barely hold it together.

Bring it on, Fall 2011 semester.  I’m not looking forward to those term papers and group projects, but when they’re done I won’t look back.
