I am now a college graduate

Last Friday, May 28th, was my graduation ceremony. This Sunday is the actual party with the whole shebang of family and friends. Friday was a beautiful, warm and sunny day. I even got a little bit of a tan from sitting in the bleachers. All week I was looking forward to graduation, but it didn’t really hit me until Friday morning, and then it hit me a second time when they had the School of Arts and Sciences stand up and move our tassels to the other side of our caps. Then we were called up to receive our degrees. Geoffrey Fletcher, the writer of ‘Precious’ was our graduation speaker. Afterward, we went to Apps which is a delicious Italian restaurant where I sipped on my white wine spritzers and enjoyed Fettuccine Alfredo. It was a wonderful day with the people I love.

Look very closely at this photo. There is a hole in the tree branches and my face can be seen right in there. Keith took it of me. =]

I’m the third one walking up to receive my degree, and cheesin’ the whole way.

I do not know this man in the photo. I dubbed him “The Situation.” He posed and everything! Too funny.

These were just a few of my favorites from the graduation ceremony. I especially love the one with the tree just because Keith is amazing and managed to find me in the hole of the branches. Look close at the tree one and you will see my face. =] The whole day really made me think a lot, and I am so excited about making my degree work for me. Now…I just need a school to hire me!

    And I love all the photos, too — Although I admit the one where your face can be seen in the hole of the tree, well, I can’t see, as the photo’s too tiny. x_x; D’you have a larger version that I can see …? I’d love to, because I ADORE cool shots like that. =3; It’s always, like, the best day ever when I’m taking photos and something like that happens. XD;
