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'...
