Celebrate!

by Tracy Bowen

Have I ever mentioned that I hate hats?  I suppose I should clarify…I hate hats on me. Because, honestly, I look completely ridiculous.
My co-author is adorable in a hat. I envy her that. I am also jealous of her amazing knowledge of the rules of English grammar.  But let’s not start down that road or I will be here all day. She is gifted in a lot of areas that I’m not, and if I start listing them I may get depressed. Which would be a shame, because right now I’m in a pretty good mood.

Why, you may ask, am I in such high spirits? Well, for the past several years, right about this time, I was overwhelmed with the amount of work I needed to get turned in by a weekly Monday deadline for my college courses.

But not this week.
This week I get to sit down at my computer and write a blog while avoiding my WIP, because I am feeling a just a tiny bit stuck with a certain thread in my story. There is not a college essay or textbook in sight.

I’m done with school! For now, anyway. Eventually, I plan to further my college education, but for right now I am going to bask in the glow of the moment. This is a bucket list event. I’m getting the pleasure of marking off the achievement of a lifetime goal. I took the long road to get here, but I made it.
So this week I’m going to slap a square hat on my head and march down an aisle in front of hundreds of people. I will look foolish, but don’t let my appearance deceive you. I am very smart. I will be holding a piece of paper in my hands that says so.

So very happy for you, Tracy!
And for the record, I have it on good authority that even without the piece of paper, you're still smart! ;-)

Hooray for you! What an accomplishment.
Jenness freaks me out over grammar, too. ;-)
