The Beginning of the End

It is true.
Tomorrow I will be finished my undergrad career forever.
It's about time!! I'm sure my parents agree.

I started out my University career at 17 years old, not really sure what I wanted to do, and confused about the choices I had to make.
I chose to go into the education program, but after three years....maybe more...eek, of floating through the program, then taking a break to serve a mission, I finally decided it wasn't for me.
With encouragement from Caleb, who was then my "secret friend", I followed my heart, and applied to the Addictions Counselling program...I had always thought about this program, but never had the guts to do it.

It was one of the best choices I could have made.
Through my classes and my practicums I have developed a passion for helping those struggling with addiction. They are all tougher, more resilient, and more courageous than I ever could be.
I learn so much from them.

I have also had the wonderful opportunity of meeting so many friends in this program, and I hope we will stay friends after we part ways, and start competing against each other for jobs! :)
We went out last night to celebrate a Birthday and our upcoming graduation. It was a blast, and I am going to miss these ladies so much. It will be sad not seeing their beautiful faces in my classes everyday. We started out together, and now we are going to finish together.
I love you girls!

So this is my friend Jamie. Here she is harassing the manager of the restaurant. ha!
She is beautiful, has such a kind heart, and is always good for a party! As you can tell. You can also tell her anything and she is always willing to listen.
My dear Jamie again.
This is Rachael. I used to highland dance with her sister! She is so smart, so passionate about what she does, and is the mother in the group. She also blurted out in front of our whole class before we were about to do a presentation, "Kailey, I need you to get a bun in your oven!"
She is also hilarious!
Carrie and Nicole are in this picture. Nicole and I started out together in the same lab. She helped me out by being my friend! She is smart, funny, and I will miss her! Also here is Carrie, one of the sweetest people I know!
And here is the group. Sadly I cannot do write ups on everyone! But they are all such wonderful girls, and I will miss them all so much!
Thank you for making school so much fun!!
