Thrilled Thirty-Ninth

Sorry for the lack of posting, the past few weeks have been INSANE! I have been trying to get things done to graduate and that included 2 exams, a 10 page research paper and 6 pages of service papers, not including work and my regular life! 

Anyway, all the hard work has paid off and I am now

Shaking our president, Dr. Conn's hand and getting that diploma!!!

Des and I, isn't he handsome??!!??

The Siblings minus one :(

My mom, me and my aunt-she also graduated from Lee with a BA in Psych like me!

My wonderful amazing grandparents!

My beautiful graduation ring!!!

Needless to say, I was shocked when I walked across that stage...I really never imagined myself graduating! I think its because I have been there for so long! 
It is such a strange feeling to be done with school...after 18 years of school I barely know anything is what I have been comfortable knowing...So now I am thrust out into the wide world of endless options feeling very untrained and lacking in guidance. However, there is always grad school in the fall...back into the comfort zone I go!

Food for today's thought:
“I hope your dreams take you... to the corners of your smiles, to the highest of your hopes, to the windows of your opportunities, and to the most special places your heart has ever known.”

Thanksgiving Thirty-Eighth

So it's been quite awhile since I updated...things have just been a little crazy here on my end...

Last week was Thanksgiving, Desmond and I drove home to Atlanta last Tuesday and had Thanksgiving with my dad's side of the family. We went to my g-parents house Wednesday and I helped her cook, and that night we went out with Murray and Stacey-Des' best friend and his girlfriend-we went to see Four Christmases, which is really funny, definitely recommend it! Thursday was Thanksgiving with my mom's family, Friday was Black Friday shopping at 6 am and Desmond's b-ball game in south Atlanta, Saturday was my brothers 15th birthday party, Sunday was church and our return to Cleveland!!! Whew!!! Sorry to bore you with all the details but that just explains my lack of writing!

Des and I at about 5:30 on our way to the mall!!! It was sooo early and cold!!!

So this week is filled with reading and writing as I finish up my last college course and my service learning hours before graduation NEX
T SATURDAY- December 13th!!!!!!! 


I can't think about that right now...I'll think about it tomorrow and write about it later...

Sorry I don't have very many pictures I just was on picture taking hiatus this Thanksgiving...

Love you all!
