It's all over but the partying


It's official!!  As of 8:34 a.m. this morning, I finished my last final as a graduate student.  It's bittersweet.  I have enjoyed meeting new people and gaining new friends and will miss the "student life" but am so excited to start the next chapter of my life.

Even though commencement isn't until after the spring semester, I'm excited!


I'll take a minute to breathe.




Then start worrying about getting into grad school!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!
That final moment can be tough, I had a study partner for two years of my undergrad studies that i spent time with and never saw again.Kep up the good work, it pays off in the end.

Congratulations! Did you finish grad school or undergrad? I am confused. Either way....what an awesome accomplishment! I started grad school this semester but had to take a leave so I go back in the fall of '12. Yay for new chapters!!!!

Thanks everyone. It should read undergraduate. . . I'm picking up letters of recommendation today to send along with essays and applications for grad school. Fingers crossed . . .

Congratulations! Now you can relax a little. We still have one son in college, he has 2 associates and is going for his bachelors.
