My Life-Changing Event

Ever since last August I've alluded to a certain life-changing event on this here blog. For a reason that worked for me, I was quite cagey about it. It even took a few months to tell my family and friends. I knew that The Mormon was special because I felt comfortable enough to tell him about it. There were moments earlier this winter when the stress of working on my life-changing event would make me explode. At first, this event was going to require a major change of scenery, but after some sage words from tuckergurl, I made some adjustments to the plan.

Throughout it all, I didn't doubt the wisdom of this choice. Well...that's not true. There were plenty of times when I thought that I should bag this whole thing. But then something would happen at work that would reaffirm my decision. Yeah, it's related to work.

And boy am I glad I didn't give it up! Because...drum roll, please...I've been accepted into Harvard's doctoral program. If I choose to go...I've applied to three other programs and there is a LOT to consider...I would eventually become Dr. L. Britt with a degree from Harvard!!! How awesome is that!?!

I've laughed, cried, hugged, called and emailed almost everyone I know. I've had a steak dinner with cheesecake for dessert. I'm exhausted. But I wanted to let you all know the big news before I went to bed.

Times...they are a' changin'...

Woo hoo! Congratulations! I'm so happy for you, L. Britt. Wherever you decide to go, they will be lucky to have you.

Enjoy this great news!

If there were words that meant "congratulations to the nth degree" I would say those.

You've obviously accomplished a lot. Congratulations girl.

And if you can, quit telling yourself you're too broken to hold on to happiness. Focus on the good stuff in your life. You obviously have lots to feel awesome about...my 2 cents.

P.S. The previous post? It's not true. I know you know that, I just wanted to tell you anyway.
