I took the bus up to Boulder this morning and turned in my signed acceptance letter, as well as the notarized faculty oath that I needed to take if I want to be a TA or RA. So, it’s official! The paperwork avalanche has been started.
I also talked to my boss yesterday and let him know what was going on. The good news is, I can keep working as long as I want, so I’m planning to stay until the beginning of August. I can’t really work past the start of school, though, not if I’m going to be working 20 hours a week for the university.
It’s a little scary, since I’ve been working here for four years now. They took me in when I was unemployed and had nothing better than a high school diploma to my name, and there are a lot of people in this company that I have to thank for the opportunity to get my Bachelor’s degree. I suppose the good news is, Mike will still be working here, so I can stop by and visit people.
More than anything, though, I’m excited. Graduate school! It’s going to be an adventure.
