I'm a big girl now!

Well, its official, as of last Wednesday I am a UofA graduate! I was done my degree in December but now I have the paper to prove it. After a long 4 1/2 year road I graduated with distinction and a BA in Sociology and Human Geography (essentially urban planning). I am glad I went to my convocation because it felt like a real closure to my years as a student, and, not to sound all prideful, but I was proud of myself. I worked my butt off for 4 1/2 years so I felt like I deserved to walk that stage and hear them call out my name followed by "with distinction". Man did it ever feel good!

Looking back now I am so grateful that I was afforded the chance to go to university. I am grateful for the many ways that my education expanded my mind, matured me, and truly morphed me into the person that I am today. I am definately glad that it is over, but grateful for the experience. Once in a while I find myself missing being a student because I miss challenging my mind to the utmost on a daily basis, but then I remember that now I do not have to come home and study until I go to bed, and then I am glad to be a working girl. I think one day I may go back to school - possibly law school or to get my MBA - but right now I am content and ready for the new chapter in my life.

Here are some pics from the day.
