so here I am, shaking hands and getting my degree. The degree is actually for show, the real one is to be mailed to me at a later date. I DID make full payment for my last class, and I have no outstanding debt that should preclude me from getting that piece of paper in a timely manner.
It is a relief, and very exciting, to get this done. It's been 3.5 years in the making. I can hardly believe that it's been that long, but that time has gone by that quickly. I don't know how people can do this full time, and have a family, and work. It's a tough job for adults to go back to school and anyone that does it gets big props. Some of my best friends, and my beloved, were there as well. I'm glad they were all there. We all went to the house afterwards for food and drink and cake! It was a good day.
