I was crossin my fingers to get a highschool diploma under my belt...so you can imagine how surprised I was when I actually graduated from college.
(At 22! On track and everything. That never happens for me guys!)
Graduation day was a good day. So grateful for the friends and family I had there to support me!
And especially grateful for all the people who have been there with me through it all. A few college memories i will never forget from the past four years with my lovies are..
- gorilla costume escapades with Meg at snow hall, where we laughed so hard while chasing unsuspecting residents
- When Christy called me from Iowa and cried with me for an hour straight the night i found out my mom had cancer
- When Livvy bought me flowers, a coloring book, dr pepper and reeses when the cancer scare came back a year later
- the ladies of 6C for those Mario marathons we all so desperately needed
- the numerous supportive and wise texts from my mom after i got my heart broken by MULTIPLE boys...
- SD crew and our Sunday pot lucks
- my entire family for cheering me on when i felt like dropping out of school
- brookie, chris, heather, sum, laur, bunting, britty, and the falks for always caring for me
- my SW bffs..morg and kenz for keeping me sane through 7:30 AM seminar
- The hours of television watching, crying, chick flicks, impersonations and laughing till my guts hurt with my bestie Ryan Shipley Snow
- the hours of animal planet marathons with D22
- that DANG drive i made so many times through the canyon and all the miles i put on Billy and Willy
- all my old friends i got to know and love @ Williamsburg and the countless hours spent planning those dang activities
- putting my raft in first dam and sunbathing & fishing
- countless painfully awkward blind dates
- Dr. Di for making me graduate when i wanted to drop out last year after my massive heartbreak
- the words of advice & blessings from various church leaders in times of need
- all the nights i cried on my moms bed when i was discouraged and the words of encouragement she always gives
- my dad hugging me before i'd drive back to school and tell me each time how proud he was of me
So long college...
I'll forever be an Aggie!!
