So I just finished my last final. And when I say "last" I mean LAST! I am graduating tomorrow. And I won't be going back for classes ever again unless someday I go to another school, I guess. I don't really want to do that, but I am not one of those people who will swear that it will never happen. And there is much rejoicing! Just enough for me to go shopping and then go home and take a nap before the Honors Convocation and the Open House I am having with some of my friends. Then on to the morning tomorrow where I have to awake early to go buy my cap and gown and then in the middle of two hours of people marching across a stage, I too, will be allowed my turn to march across that stage. Oh, joy. If my grandparents were not coming, I would not be doing the whole hullaballoo. But, alas, to bless them, to make them happy, I would do many things.

Isn't taking that last final such a strange and wonderful sensation? Congratulations!
Thanks for your comments. Yes, I do tend to lurk! :)

aimingatproverbs31--Love you Mom!

kimananda--I will be teaching in Kurdistan, God willing.

nathan--I like the quote, thanks!

hannah--It was a strange sensation, and I wasn't exactly sure what to do with myself!

mreddie--Thanks! And I do lean heavily on him... there is no other way.

nunzia--I was very emotional walking across the stage the next day, but I don't really cry in public. Perhaps that is just a strange pride issue or something.

Congrats, sorry Bekah and I couldn't make it down this weekend. If we don't get to see you before you go, know that we love you and we'll miss you. We will be praying for you. Go with God's grace and strength.
