and a happy Friday to you!

good news, everyone!
I've been officially accepted to grad school! 
in the spring when I graduated with my Bachelor's, I swore that was done with school forever because I was so so sick of it and I never ever ever wanted to go to another class or write another paper as long as I lived. but then I got turned down for every job I applied to because they were "seeking candidates with a Master's degree or higher". so that was lame.
so I started applying to this program before the wedding, things got crazy, and I just turned in my application 2 weeks ago. and now, I'm officially accepted. so, there are financial things to figure out and some more research to do, but right now, it's looking like as of October 15, I'll be going to graduate school online to get a Master's degree in Higher Education. this means I'll be qualified to work at the college level in Student Administration positions, such as Resident Director jobs, running Student Unions, that kind of thing. it seems fun, right?
so there's that news.

also, I just decided to take the leap and start sponsoring other blogs. this blogging thing has always just been a hobby for me, and while it still is, I figured that with my new Etsy shop, it was time to invest a little bit into this hobby of mine. so I'm excited about that! September should be fun times around here. on that note, I'm still doing ad swaps with people whose blogs are about the same size as mine, so if you're interested, e-mail me at sweetandwildchildblog [at] gmail [com] to let me know! [even those of you who are already swapping with me, please just e-mail to tell me you'd like to continue swapping].

also, remember that if you'd like to purchase any kick ass cards from my Etsy shop, you have until Sunday to use the code "openingweek" for 10% off!

i think that's all, folks! hope you all have a wonderful weekend. who's doing anything fun? [the answer to that would be me, but I want to hear all y'alls plans too]!

Congratulations! Grad school still seems really scary to me! My husband just started online grad school this past week, and it's a whole new learning style for him, though I kind of think it would be fun to "go to school" at home!
