Good-bye M'Boro,MTSU,and Wendi!

Today is my last day working in the admissions office at MTSU. Clint and I are packing up and moving this weekend. I cannot believe after 6 years, I'm leaving Murfreesboro! I remember first coming to school here (what seems like forever ago) and hating it terribly! I missed my east tn mountains and my friends. But, it wasn't long before this small,crammed packed town grew on me. Now, I cannot imagine being anywhere else.

MTSU has been truly been my home away from home. I feel like I could direct any one anywhere on this campus with my eyes closed. (Which is exactly what I've been doing for the past 5 weeks, eyes open though!) It's gonna be a big adjustment putting on a red shirt and cheering for the Gov's. But, I'm excited for the change.

I met Wendi in ADPi. We both were education majors who really couldn't see ourselves teaching. We had lots of classes together and shared the joys and MANY sorrows of student teaching. Once graduating and having no clue what to do next, it was Wendi who told me about graduate school. For the next 2 years, we had most of our classes together. We joke that we are pretty much the same person with identical resumes. After graduating in May, we both took a job here in the admissions office while we waited to hear from job prospects. I'm leaving her behind here, but I know it won't be for long. Soon, she will be heading out of Murfreesboro to a new job!

At lunch today, we went to eat at one of my favorite 'Boro restaurants, The Front Porch Cafe. Oh, how I will miss that place, along with a few others. Clarksville is going to have some big shoes to fill.

Murfreesboro, MTSU and Wendi, this is not goodbye, but merely hasta la vista!!!
