Pomp and Circumstance
Well, today is the day. I have finally arrived - I am officially a Real Librarian. The ceremony was at 9:00 this morning!!!
As you know, I decided not to make the trip to Denton, Texas to walk in the graduation ceremony. I am totally okay with that decision - I never really felt a pull to go there. It might have been different if I actually knew any of my classmates, but since I took all of my classes online, I wouldn't know anyone. Besides, my DH wouldn't have been able to go with me, my parents couldn't have gone, and I would have had to take a bunch of vacation from work.
So instead, I am sitting at work wearing my graduation gear - my cap, gown, hood and tassel. There is a beautiful balloon attached to my chair that says Congratulations! and my coworkers presented me with a card and some yummy candy! Ahh, so exciting!!!
I found this picture - some graduation tips for those who ARE actually walking graduation.
I suppose this means I have to start looking for a new job, huh? More on that later...
My poor DH has to work tonight until 10, so we are planning on celebrating later. So, instead, my friend A is taking me to Red Lobster (mmmmmm!!!), and we are going to have Bonus Night of FMRNS!! YAY!!!
Tonight's feature is the original Hairspray from 1988 with Sonny Bono and Ricki Lake. I haven't seen the new one yet, because I was told that I couldn't see it until I saw the original. I'm excited!!!
