Yesterday was my long awaited college graduation. For those who have talked to me about graduation recently, have probably heard me complain about the fact that I had to wait 5 months to celebrate that I finished school in December. Well, as bitter as I had been about it, I got to graduate with one of my best friends who I’ve known since I was 6 years old. We were born on the same day, danced at the same dance studio, went to high school together… where we also got suspended together (not as bad as you think- we we’re too talkative in class,) and then went to college together. Sitting in our tap class when we were 6 years old, where we discovered we shared the same birthday, and became friends because of it… who would have thought that we would one day be ending one of the biggest chapters of our lives together? Crazy how life works sometimes! (She’s in the top two pictures in the collage below.)
On another note, this was probably the most exciting day of my parents lives. I can’t even begin to explain the struggle it was for me to get here. Mainly just my first 2 years, until I got my life together by my last 2 1/2 years. But all in all, I AM DONE, and it feels great.
P.S. My mom is the one who rhinestoned our caps!!
