Full of smiles

This smile has gotten bigger since it was taken yesterday after my haircut (which I really needed). I want to thank everyone who responded to my blog post yesterday. After I wrote that post, I felt a little bit better but I still had a good 30-45 minute cry session in the middle of the day to release the tension (right before the haircut too). I finished my awesome 2,175 word paper last night too, which was a breeze to get the last 1,000 words written within 90 minutes. Hell, I just found out on Wednesday that I have a typing speed of 51 WPM with a 93% accuracy. I am a speed typer besides a speed runner. I almost set for my trip to Chicago and weekend visit with Josh. Only 19 hours and 5 minutes to go before I arrive at O'Hare. I have my own right to countdown since it has been 38 days, 6 hours, and 10 minutes since I have last seen him. Tee-hee! Ain't love grand!

P.S. Send LOTS of strength and encouragement on Sunday afternoon between 12:45 and 5:00 PM. I am testing with Elk Grove Heights Police Department - both written and physical agility. Yes, it's for a police officer position! It consists of 1.5 mile run that I need to complete within 16:52 (TOTALLY Firefly do-able if you saw my previous 5K paces before!), completing a minimum of 27 sit-ups, push-up (in substitute for a bunch press), and sit and reach. Please wish me lots of luck. Will submit results as they come in.

Update: I received the grade for the long paper. An awesome A. Final grade will come on Sunday.

I can't wait to see you tomorrow!

And I think you are going to do fantastic on Sunday.  This is the kind of position you've been preparing for a long time, and I know you'll perform well.

I believe in you.
