Well, I finally finished school. My graduation application has been sent in and now all I have to do is wait for my diploma to come in the mail. I am receiving a BA in Communications from Thomas Edison State College. My family is going to have a graduation ceremony in August after my intensive so pics from that will come then. It is really a God story how I managed to do high school and college at the same time. So, here it is…

Ever since I started school, I thought it was important to get a degree. As I progressed through high school, I realized that I wanted to pursue dancing through college. I thought I would get a degree in dance (and possibly double major in something else writitng related) then find a teaching job somewhere. So, I started looking into colleges that offered a dance major. None of them really clicked–I either didn't like the academics and the dance program was good or the academics were great and the dance program was just not where I wanted to be. The summer before my junior year of high school, I realized that God was leading me to pursue a career as a professional dancer. But I still wanted a degree and I knew that it would be hard to do both. One night, while Mommy was looking into debate classes for Joshua, she came across and ad for CollegePlus! It was an answered prayer. I enrolled in November of 2008 and took my first CLEP in February of 2009. I enrolled in TESC in December and took my classes February-June 2010. And now I'm done!

I am so glad that I have a degree under my belt. Now, I am wondering what I am going to do with myself. I have kind of hidden behind school for the last seven years of my life. It kept me busy (along with ballet of course) and gave me an excuse for not being social. Mommy called it my crutch. Well now, my crutch is gone and I have a new plan. I am going to expend most of my energy focusing on ballet. I also hope to get to work on some of my goals for 2010 (one of which is to blog more often) and meet new people but there isn't really a fully conrete plan yet (just a half dried one). I am excited about this new phase of life but also a little nervous. However, I know that God will put me exactly where I can be used best for His glory and though the future is uncertain, I have peace in that.

One thought on “I’m Done!

  1. Congratulations Rebekah! I’m so happy for you.
    You have been a light and a great role model for me as well as many other girls. I can see God working through you and in you. I will continue to pray that God will use you for His glory and His fame.
