A Year Ago

Last year, on this exact date, I graduated from graduate school. When I graduated not only did I take away a new degree, but also lifelong friendships and wonderful memories. It was two of the best years of my life and I have my friends to thank!

The week of graduation was fabulous. The week before we had wrapped up Literacy Camp (my clinical placement during my last semester), I had finished all my exams, and I successfully presented my master's project - all of that was over and this last week was wide open! My roommate and I really took advantage of a free week. Sure we should have spent some time packing so we wouldn't have had to throw everything into trash bags at the last minute, but who wants to spend free time packing? (not us)

We spent the week laying out in the park, eating Mexican at least once a day, and doing whatever the heck else we wanted to for five whole days. Right across the street from the park we loved and about a mile up that road was the historic stone called Judaculla Rock. We didn't care for the rock as much as we cared for the scenery before the rock. It was located on a huge farm, surrounded by mountains. It was one of the most gorgeous places I've ever seen. Meg (my roommate) asked me to take some pictures of her here to give to her mom and boyfriend - and that's where we went! Here are some pictures of the farm and of Meg!

That's all so beautiful! Super huge congrats on your one-year grad-iversary. I've got another roughly four years till I'm finished with my graduate program (stupid phd), so I'm more than a little jealous!

Great pictures!

Doesn't time fly? I feel like it was just yesterday that I graduated from grad school. Grad school can be stressful but it is definitely a rewarding experience where you can foster lifelong friendships.
