My Final Final

My graduation cap! Class of 2012! I did it!
I just turned in my last final.

My FINAL final.

I have the strangest feeling right now.

I am done. Finished. Everything is complete. It is amazing how two years of constant stress, deadlines, endless work, and expectations can be done with the push of a button.


My final wasn't due until 5 o'clock this afternoon and I found myself contemplating holding on to it just a little bit longer. Surely, there was more I could do. Surely, there was something else that I could add. Then I realized that this final is just one drop in the bucket of two years of hard work. I had already put in at least a good 8 hours into this one assignment and friends, it is time to be done!

So I turned it in!

Now it is time to head to campus and trade out my graduation robes for something that won't fit both me and a car full of clowns. Seriously, I know these things aren't supposed to be fitted, but somehow the robe I got could double as bedding for a California King.

Once I get that taken care of, it is off to Commencement! Elder Dallin H Oaks, former BYU President and member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will be speaking.  I can't wait! I can't believe I am here!

Let's make this happen!

Just when you thought I was gone forever...

Guess what my plans are this weekend?!

Um, yeah, remember that one time that I thought it was a good idea to complete my last semester of grad school and train for a half marathon at the same time?! Well, I am happy to report that it was a GREAT idea! It didn't leave much room for blogging (I know, I missed you too). And I must admit that neither my grades nor my training was perfect - BUT I DID IT! I am two days away from graduation and three days away from my second half marathon! 


So, I WALK on Friday and I RUN on Saturday! I can't wait!
