The Goal-iest Thing I Accomplished Today!

Around 6 years ago I went to a motivation workshop at work and we had to draw a long term goal for ourselves on a note card. I drew this:It is hard to make out via the scan, but this goal card is the goal to earn a Master's degree. In the bottom right I have drawn myself stressed, but in a good academic sort of way. In the upper right there is a lecturer.

I have had this card posted at my desk ever since, it has followed me through 4 jobs, buying my home, meeting and marrying my partner, and meeting so many wonderful friends.

Today my thesis project was approved! I am DONE. I have met my goal. My work is off to be bound.

I am a Master.

The sick thing is....now I want to draw a new card about me working for a PhD!

Ha!

I am so thrilled to be done.

I hope that you keep your goals posted somewhere and that you can work towards being done too!

-- i'm actually glad you posted what you did on my blog :) i like knowing why things are what they are. and knowing why they put those blood drops on the paper is awesome.i mean, i hate hearing him cry, but really i knew it was for a good cause, whatever that may be. i still secretly think that it's so the state can have our dna to clone us LOL jk

thanks for being such a good reader and sticking with me through my lull. i'm trying to get back into actually reading my fave blogs (like YOURS!) good luck with the thesis!
