#Mamavation Monday: Residency is over

As most of you know I've been in the first year of my doctorate in Educational Leadership.  Saturday May 3 was the last day of my residency year (Year 1).  I feel like I've accomplished something big.  I survived my first 8 classes (24 hrs) of doctoral work and I'm pretty sure I'll be keeping my 4.0. 

According to the cohort before us, if you can survive this first year then it's all good until dissertation.  This was the hardest part.  I'm looking forward to some time back.  Instead of losing my entire weekend, I should have more time for family and friends.  I'm excited for days without worrying about homework.

I'm excited about getting back on board with my workouts!  I haven't done jack since spring break so like 8 weeks :(  Mamavation 2-week challenge here I come!


  1. Congratulations!!!! You should be very proud of yourself. Good luck with the challenge, you will rock it!

  2. WAY TO GO!
    It is stressful enough to attempt balancing healthy goals with family, and various household obligations. You are doing it while conquering the academic world. 4.0? WOOT Way to go!

  3. Congratulations and enjoy the family time and good luck for the next step :)
