I can finally say I have a few minutes to sit down and update my blog. Yes, my classes are finished and with the exception of one online exam, I am finished the Corporate Communication & Public Relations course at Fanshawe!

It doesn't really seem that long ago that I decided to take the plunge and head back to school. It was a year and a half ago that I started this journey - first with online courses, then part-time status in September and full-time status in January. The past four months have, by far, been the most challenging simply because of the schedule I've been keeping. Each day I was out of the house early in the morning (some days by 7:30am others by 9:30am) and returned after work at midnight. As you can imagine this was exhausting.

The last few weeks were filled with final projects and presentations and although the end was in sight, they were tough. I'm happy to say that I did survive and complete the course with honours.

Returning to student life after so long of being in the working world was a bit daunting. However, by easing my way back into it, I actually enjoyed the whole process. Along the way I met some great new friends and had some fantastic instructors as well.

I'm not sure the reality has hit me that I won't be waking up at the crack of dawn and driving to Fanshawe anymore. Perhaps in a week or so it will seem more real.
