It’s About That Time…

Well, it’s finally here. Spring Semester 2007. Tomorrow will officially mark the beginning of the end as I wind down my time at UGA- perhaps. I say perhaps because I’ve actually been dreading this semester in my own way for a few months.

As tomorrow shall come (it’s probably already tomorrow in Australia, so it’s definitely coming), I’ll have to get serious about what I might do AFTER May 12, 2007. And I honestly have no idea what will come after this. I submitted an application for TFA this morning and started an application for graduate school this afternoon. I’ll be registering to retake the Praxis II and the GACE in hopes that I can become a certified teacher. For the first time in my life, I don’t know what will be next.

I feel slightly crippled in that I have no real work experience. Sure I’ve had jobs and extracurricular experience, but whenever I look at those job descriptions, I’m immediately discouraged. I feel the pressure looming over me. My parents are asking what I’m going to do. People who know that I’m graduating are asking what I’m going to do. The answer is still the same- I don’t know.

So while I feel that I should be excited about completing yet another step on my journey, I’m not. Perhaps it’ll change, but until it does, I’ll be somewhere trying to discover what options I have.
