I did it!
sort of... I walked at graduation. It was kind of like celebrating a half birthday though, since I still have a semester of student teaching before that hard earned diploma lands in my hands. But I'm glad I walked. The symbolism and the celebration and the blue robes and my brown tassel (seriously, brown for a BFA? I would have preferred a corally pink or sunshiney yellow, which is what I used for my invitations: much more me). My mom even made a pie, which means it was a serious party ;) I had dinner at one of my favorite restaurants with my in-laws and finished the night with baskin robbins.
It was a good day :)
