This month I fulfilled #98 on the list: Graduate!
|All regalia'd up. Photo by my lovely mother-in-law and her fancy smartphone.|
Also #97 - Maintain a 4.0 GPA.
This news is not new news to those who know me IRL. I basically couldn't shut up about it.
So I'm pretty happy about this. It is nice to be done with school (for now).
We went up to the Dallas/Ft. Worth area to stay with my mom for the weekend of the commencement ceremony. Gary's parents came too, which was great. We were also able to see my uncle and aunt as well as my grandparents. I'm looking forward to seeing my family again in September, and Gary's in November. I sometimes feel like we don't get to see our families enough.
Anyway! I got lots of awesome loot from lots of awesome people whom I can't thank enough. I'd never have been able to make it this far without the support of my family and friends.
The most unexpected surprise: a sewing machine courtesy of my friends and coworkers! It is basically the same as the machine I was borrowing, which is great because there won't be so much of a learning curve (though I am definitely still learning). I can't believe they went to all that trouble! I feel a little squeeee bubbling up whenever I think of it. The next project is another skirt, same pattern, different variation/material.
