So I know you're thinking wait what? Slow down! Who what when where and why? Okay so I won't give you the entire story now because I'm too excited to be still.... hahahahahaha (even though I found out more than a week ago-- 2 weeks on Friday) but I'm going to the University of Florida's Documentary Institute in the fall to get my master's in documentary journalism!! I couldn't tell you because the official note had to go out at work before I could spill the beans! My last day there is July 30th! Wasn't it worth the wait!? My whole world is going to change in just months! Yeah!!!!!!!!

That's so super-fracktakin'-awesome!!! :D

I'm thrilled for you! Also, I love documentary journalism. I rarely watch any other type of movie anymore, and most of my favourite non-fiction books are authored by journalists. You will be joining the ranks of a highly admired profession! Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!
