The Ridiculous Life of Me.

On May 3, 2008, in Uncategorized, by Meghan

First, THANK YOU for the powerful thoughts, prayers, and energy yesterday. I was so buoyed by my family and friends that I thought I was going to pop right out of the muddy sea of academia.

Next, and most importantly, yesterday’s activities proceeded with flying colors. At graduation in one week, I will be conferred a Master of Science degree. It was a challenging but amazing experience.

Finally, I received a note from the Dreamchasers that I will be racing in the 2009 Marathon des Sables. Now, what kind of craziness is this?

Life is so damn exciting it’s ridiculous. Right now, I feel like the luckiest human being alive.
