This doesn't have a whole lot to do with cycling ... except that going to University full time, and working 1-2 jobs has really eaten into my cycling time. The further into the program I got, the less cycling I could do. Last year my longest ride ended up being a 300K because I simply did not have the time to do more while working ~60 hours a week in the summer.
However as of today ... things have all changed .......
Today, April 17th, 2009 ... I have finally finished my Bachelor of Education degree.
Roughly 5 years ago I made the decision to quit my job, give up my apartment, give away/sell/pack & store my things, move two provinces over in order to pursue my dream of getting my Bachelor of Education. I've had that dream since I was about 8 years old.
It's been a lot of work and a huge challenge for me for many reasons ........ but today, I completed my final practicum, and I am DONE!!! No more practicums, no more classes, no more assignments ... completely and utterly finished.
Let the cycling begin!!!!
My official graduation is June 9th. And then I embark on a whole new and different life.
