Finally got my Diploma!
« on: July 10, 2017, 07:25:28 PM »
I finally received the paper copy of my diploma in the mail today! I share so many of my bad moments here I wanted to share a good one.

I finished my last credit in January (had one hanging over my head because of breaking my arm in my fourth year of my bachelor's degree, so I couldn't perform my senior recital for about 6 months)

Either way I have the paper copy now! I can finally apply to grad school for 2018 and start moving again. It is a reminder that I accomplished something huge. I am the first in my family to get a Bachlors degree and I did so at a prestigious private college because of all my academic work for scholarships. I came out with a degree, and a minor. As well as a lot of experience, and a very fully resume.

I forget through the struggle that I accomplish things as well. So I wanted to share here that I am excited, and can now start to see myself in grad school next year  :cheer:
