Please forgive the poor quality of this photo…

If you can’t tell this is in a fitting room at good old Ross…this dress was reduced to $8.99 and my camera has no flash ((I love the touchpad curve but I hate the camera))  Anyway, I think that this shall be my graduation dress.  I mean I wanted to wear white with red shoes (since both my hood and honors regalia are blue–same as my school colors).  Why is all this even important? Well because tonight I FOUND OUT I PASSED MY STATE BOARDS AND CAN GRADUATE IN MAY.

I mean…elated is not even the word.  I’m excited, scared, relieved, just…soooo many things. I can’t believed the growth I’ve managed through this program and I can’t believe how much its given me.  I did EVERYTHING. Literally, I got published, I presented at a professional conference, I joined honors fraternaties, I interned, I worked, I volunteered, mentored, researched…I did it all. I can truly say that I got everything there was to get out of this degree except study abroad.  There’s still time, one more to go!

I’m hoping that I get to speak at commencement, I still don’t know how to make that happen but that would be the cherry on top of a satisfaction sundae.  Next up, find a job and get this Dr. in front of my name with the PhD behind it.
