I be graduated.

The day and what it means still seems a bit surreal. Today I graduated with my BS from Azusa Pacific University following a 12+ year journey that has included 9 schools and, well, let's just say a good chunk of student loans. But it's done. I did it.


The ceremony was short and sweet.

And my party--a fabulous soiree hosted by Ginger & Denise--so much fun! I was celebrated well today. Very, very well.

Thank you to everyone that came and for all of your love and support! (All are not pictured here.)

And to all of those that wish they'd could have been there, I know you were in spirit.

Congratulations Kelly!! I would have loved to have been there to celebrate with you!
P.S. I love your graduation outfit (or at least I love the shirt that you are wearing, there are no pictures of the whole thing).

B-The other schools were ones that I did classes online such as Mendocino, West Hills, Saddleback, etc. They were either psych classes or for classes I retook for a better grade. I've spent a fortune in transcript fees since grad apps require transcripts from each institution you've taken 2+ units from. Denver required TWO copies of each transcript. CRAZY!

And thanks, Liz! The outfit is a dress, which I wore with raspberry colored patent leather shoes. It was cute, if I do say so myself. :-)

Wish you couldve been there to celebrate with me too, you fellow Cougar you!
