that perfect hand…

In Ocean's 11, Danny said that "the house always wins. If you play long enough, never change the stakes, then the house takes you. Unless, when that perfect hand comes along, you bet big… and then, you take the house." Here's the hand I've been dealt, sometimes it's risky and sometimes it's safe, but all the time… it's perfect. It's mine.

I just read Megan’s blog and it made me cry… almost. Especially over how passionate she sounds for school to be over and teaching to being. I couldn’t be more proud of my cousin-turned-dear-friend. I can’t believe this road is over for you, you are so very blessed my sweet friend and I am excited to see what comes next in your life. xo

For my own news:

I got my interview time today for the post-degree teaching program here at UVic! There was a little bump in the road yesterday where I got the dreaded ‘you are missing two course requirement’ email that would’ve eiliminated my eligibility for the program, but after asking what happened and how I could’ve messed up so badly, it turned out she messed up and I recieved both a ‘we’re pleased to invite you to…’ email and an interview time for next Wednesday. How it works is that my admittance into the Bachelor of Education PDP is 70% gpa based and 30% interview. Please think of me over the next few weeks, it feels like a step in the direction I want and dream to be. And I think those closest to me would really like me to get in simply so that I don’t keep stimulating heart attacks in them when I have minor conniptions over this whole process (although someone might argue that the conniptions are catastrophically huge). This is an answer to prayer. Keep ’em coming.
