It is done. 1

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.

    Before you leave you should certainly let them know in some way how you feel. In the working world, complaints are almost always voiced, compliments and gratitude almost never.
