It may have taken a looong time, and it definitely seemed like the day would never come, but I graduated from college on Friday with a diploma in Business Administration – Human Resource Management.
I had zero intentions of participating in the grad ceremony, because well its only college and a diploma, which is not quite as big a deal as graduating from a university with a degree. And because, I’m twenty-freakin-six, wouldn’t people think that I should I be passed the point of celebrating graduating from college. So I debated it for a while, and I came to the conclusion that I don’t give an eff what people think about how long this took me, or that its only a diploma. I’m super proud of the fact that I completed the program. And this may be the only time I graduate from post-secondary. So I’m gonna celebrate it.
My friend Julie and I waiting for the ceremony to start. Julie received a Medal of Excellence for her awesome grades. Super proud of her.

My wonderful parents. Would never have been able to do it without their support.
(financial or otherwise haha)
Pretty sure my Nan wondered if she’d live to see the day that I finished a program.
One of my favorite instructors, Andrea.

It was a wonderful day. I’m so glad I chose to participate.
How did you spend your weekend?
I am finally finished the diploma program that I have been working on for like five years. Yes, I know that’s a long time to finish what should have been a two year program, but I did it while building my career. I’m starting my degree program this fall hopefully. I’m definitely a sucker for punishment. But I do get the next four months free from the stress of school.
And since I apparently don’t know how to operate without stress in my life, I decided to host family supper at my place this coming Sunday. Which really wouldn’t be a huge deal except, I’m going to visit my parents for the weekend, so I’ll be out of town Friday – Sunday afternoon. And, since I’ve been studying for the last few weeks, I haven’t done much house work (I’m no Martha Stewart remember). So, I’ve got one night to get the groceries I need, and clean my place before I head out for the weekend.
I don’t cook for other people often. So I should probably apologize to them in advance. It could be a questionable meal 🙂
