I Did It!

giphy (5)

I just hit send on my last turn in of my thesis to my advisor. There will still be a little bit of work and polishing to do before I’m officially done, but this was the big deadline. The one I’ve been working towards all semester. Craziness. I don’t have much time to write or reflect on my emotions, because I have an hour to turn around and go to a mixer with editors and agents at my school tonight (also craziness). But I’m feeling so happy and proud of myself (I did finish a draft of the novel) and supported. Friends sent an amazing care package and flowers and got me pumpkin cheese cake to get me through this week. Even more sent nice comments through this blog or text messages or other social media.

I have no idea how I’ll feel tomorrow … or once I get the notes back on the draft from my advisor. But right now I feel filled with joy and very blessed.
