Thursday- My Algebra final at 8 then I babysat 10-5.
Friday- Just a small milestone.... I graduated (!!!!).
Saturday- Our church groups annual party, then I babysat that evening (different kids).
Sunday-My mom and I's annual Christmas Cookie Exchange party!
And all this week I am sitting 9-5.
Not to mention that I had finals Monday-Thursday.
Phew, I hardly had a chance to breathe!
But anyway, I am sharing today my graduation photos! I know, I know, there's a lot of me...but hey! It was my day!
I couldn't be happier that I've made it to this point. Through blood, sweat and tears (Ok, maybe no blood but you get the idea) I've completed my first two years of college.
Now, I have a diploma to show those people.
Back to the ceremony...
My mom and youngest brother were the only ones there. It's a long story, but my brother was stuck in traffic, my SIL had a previous engagement, I completely forgot to invite my Aunt (finals brain) and everyone else was out of state. It was still perfect even without them physically there.
Can you spot me?
Here I am walking across the stage!
My very first professor (who also turned out to be one of my last) was a chancellor on stage and she gave me the biggest hug. I loved that!
After the ceremony, my older brother finally made it up and we all met at one of my favorite restaurants, Babe's.
My sweet mom and I
(yes I am holding a bag of fried chicken and my mom is holding a bag of corn... If you've been to Babes, you know why)
and we finished the evening with a trip to Walmart. Hehehe, that's so my family!
It was such a fun, exciting evening and I have to say I am pretty darn proud of myself. Not only did I maintain a 3.8 GPA, passed College Algebra, but I got a degree. I am a college educated individual. That's exciting!
Next stop is my Bachelor's at UNT next spring. Bring it on!
