Hello Friends!Well I did it. Participated in the graduation ceremony for my associate's degree.
Did I want to go? Heck no!

But I went. And you know what? I'm glad I did.

I spent three years at that blasted community college. A whole year longer than I had anticipated.
I still have another two-and-a-half years to go at my university, but we won't dwell on that now.
We were supposed to be to the auditorium at 5:30pm, which is one of those awkward times that you think to yourself, "Do I have dinner at 4pm when I'm not that hungry or 10pm when the ceremony ends and I finally get to a restaurant?"
beanitos in my SWAG bag from Blend Retreat (recaps here and here).
beanitos and at first it tasted a little like burnt chips, but then I could not stop eating them! They are made with pinto beans and flax seeds so they have a serious amount of fiber...in a chip!
my first 10K.
The first three pictures were of the cats at his parents' house. Nice Dave.
But I think a lot of them were really proud of their accomplishment, which made me feel like a snob.
I deserve this degree!!

Oh and the blog post title...
I was on my phone most of the graduation. Don't judge, I made it through about 30 minutes of names, but after that I wanted to die a little so took to Facebook and Twitter. I put a couple of things about graduating on Facebook and a friend congratulated me saying this:
I am so thankful to have such supportive family and friends who are proud of me even when I feel like I haven't accomplished very much with my life yet. God has blessed so much in this aspect (okay in many other aspects as well).
Well it's time to celebrate Daddio's birthday! It was actually on Sunday, but that is the night I got home from Blend and went straight to bed when I got home.
Have a great weekend friends!
