I threw my mom a surprise birthday party yesterday. She says that she had no idea - I don't know if I fully believe that :) But, the main point was to show her how much family and friends care for her. She was kinda depressed the night before her birthday saying that she's old now. I tried to cheer her up by saying "Just think mom, in a few hours you'll be a half a century old!" Surprisingly enough, I don't think it cheered her up, haha.
But, in the end, the surprise party had the very effect I knew would happen - she cried. She walked in and cried. HAHA I did it. Not the crying part, the "I'm so moved because of what you did for me" part. Success!
A couple of nights ago, I was watching Legends that Fall while looking at my options for either more schooling or work after I graduate/don't graduate in May. My mom was looking at what a masters in I/O psych would allow. I was looking at the psychology department at TU, the biology department, the masters programs in OU Tulsa, OU, OSU Tulsa and OSU. My mom said that if I wanted to get a masters in architecture I could, if I wanted to get a second degree in biology to do anesthesiology I could....she's basically leaving it all open and up to me. Which I greatly appreciate! I feel soooo blessed!
But, what I've recently discovered is that I need help deciding. So, I'm going to go see a life coach or someone that can ask me the questions that I need to be asked and help me to discover what it is that I would love doing as a career in the future.
