Default I Finally Made It!! :D

On May 20, 2013 I will FINALLY be graduating from my local Community College!! I have been going on and off for the past 9 years and last Thursday (May 9) I took my final final!! I will get the grades on my last 2 courses this coming week and then on to graduation! I know it may seem silly to some but for me it has been a long time coming and it feels like a very big accomplishment!!

That's wonderful! Congratulations to you. It does not seem silly at all to be pleased with such an accomplishment. What was your course of study?

Is this an outdoor graduation? If so, I hope the weather cooperates. Great news on your final grades!

Priscilla, if the weather cooperates it will be outdoors and we will be able to have as many people as we wish with us, if the weather does NOT cooperate the ceremony will be indoors and we have a limit of 2!! That is making it very hard for me!! I am praying for good weather because I have 4 guests that will be coming with me!! (My parents, my husband, and my mother-in-law!). The rest of my family and friends will be able to watch online as the college will be streaming the entire ceremony live!

At this point it looks like it will be an indoor graduation. At least the rooms with the video feed are all in the same building so the people not in the room don't have to go far!!

Yes I am a grad now! They decided to be safe and have the ceremonies indoors. But that was okay because I still graduated!!
