Yesterday, I got measured for my cap and gown and had graduation pictures taken. I picked up my graduation packet and passed on ordering a ring. All that's left is to order graduation announcements. I can't believe I'm actually (almost) done!
The last two years have flown by. Two years ago, I started my life over in a new city where the only person I knew was my brother. I admit, that was a little scary. But I survived and am loving life. The last two years have been filled with joy and heartache, jokes and tears, roll-on-the-ground laughter and pull-out-your-hair stress. I've made a lot of new friends and have reconnected with some old ones. I've managed to find my way around a new city and even have some favorite local spot. I've started a couple of blogs and dropped the ball on a couple of classes. I've gotten a new puppy to keep me company and said good-bye to some people I love.
In two months, I will walk across a stage, pick up my diploma, celebrate with family and friend, and then......start studying for the bar. My plans after graduation include crawling into a dungeon for the next two months and learning everything there is to know about Texas laws and procedures. A few months after that, I (hopefully) will be celebrating again with family and friends when I get my results.
Until then, I'm going to keep wondering, is it really graduation time already??
