I am well aware of the fact that I have been tooting my own horn for some time now. I refused to be ashamed, but I admit that sometimes I overdo it. However, this week I am dedicating to my graduation. After 21 years of trying to get this monkey off my back it is time for me to celebrate. This week I will be posting my activities, big and small, to commemorate my big day.
First off: Today I have my final finals. I finished one this morning and I am going to take my last final today around 3 p.m. I have a study session with Dane and Andrew, after which I am off to the JSB to take the test. I am a little sad that I cannot take the test in the actual testing center. Now that would be a fitting end to my auspicious beginnings. The testing center is a horrible place. Someone said the testing center was like the Dementors on Harry Potter, it sucks all the happiness out of you.
After selling my books and receiving a VERY small percentage of my hard-earned money back I purchased three things from the bookstore.
1. Chocolate-covered cinnamon bears, appr. 10 of them.
2. Chocolate-covered malted milk balls, appr. 20 of them.
3. A t-shirt that says Alum '08 on it.
I spent about $7 on my loot. (I got a 20% discount on my goods, but only after the little girl at the counter had me identify that I was indeed a student and not faculty.)
I will take a pic of me in the shirt for later blog material. Then you can see how the shirt looks on me, as well as the chocolate!
P.S. This past weekend Brice, Judy and kids came for a visit and a pre-graduation celebration. We had a lot of fun. We went bowling, went to the Kennecott Copper Mine, ate some great food, the kids swam and we had a great time. Thanks to B&J, we are so glad you came to help us celebrate.
