Celebration

I will be graduating with my Associates Degree on Friday April 29. The next Saturday--May 7 from 12-2 pm Bill will be hosting a party for me to celebrate this newest milestone. Please email me, leave a comment or facebook message me for details if you would like to come.

I am really proud of this accomplishment because it is something I have wanted my entire life. Since I was a young child, I knew that one day I would like to graduate from College. I know that I am only halfway there and yet I am super proud of all the hard work I have put into earning this degree. I held a job, raised a child, got pregnant, and am a wife while maintaining a 3.97 GPA. That is all A's with two A-'s. I have loved every experience whether good or bad because it has contributed to my college experience. Yesterday, I had my exit interview and I nearly cried as I reviewed with my academic advisor all that had taken place over the past three years to get me where I am today. I am so grateful for the people who have helped me, encouraged me, and believed in me. I am so grateful and humbled that I am halfway to realizing one of the greatest goals I have ever had. I know that before to long, I will be back in the classroom completing the other half of my goal.
