Somewhere I Belong

I'm on cloud nine right now! On Wednesday night, I finally received the news I've been so anxious to hear for months. I have been accepted into graduate school, and I really can't stop smiling! It looks like I'll be attending CSUF this Fall for the Combined Multiple Subject Teaching Credential and Masters in Education program. I am excited to start this new journey in my life! I am so happy and so lucky to have found a career I love and am pretty good at. And I have my at-the-time lack of a car to thank for that! Because I didn't have a car when I was an undergrad, I had to choose a fieldwork (required by my major) that was on campus, and so I chose to complete my 100 hours fieldwork at the UCI Children's Center. I've been hooked on working with kids ever since. I discovered this during my last few months before graduation too! I can't even imagine myself doing anything else anymore. I'm going to be a teacher!

To make things even better--the weather has been so gorgeous this week too. I've also been waiting for this skirt to go on sale for months, and I found it on the sale rack on Tuesday. It was the last one in the store and in my size. I couldn't wait to wear it so on Wednesday, I reached for the first thing that came to mind when styling it: an old favorite striped tee and my trusty yellow belt. My uncle and aunt are visiting from Malaysia for the next few days so I'm not sure how much blogging I can get in while they're here, but I will try my hardest! We're taking them up and down the SoCal coast. I'm most excited to head out to the outlets to shop!

I hope you're all having a lovely weekend so far!
