My Little Graduate

Today one of my best friends, Dakota, graduated from college and I'm so proud of her! I had to get up so early though. I'm not one to get up early, I like sleeping in late. But I got up at 7:30 for a 9:30 ceremony because I love Dakota and I wanted to help celebrate this special day for her. We got there a little late though because we couldn't get a seat. We had to stand for like three hour ceremony and half of that was the actual giving out of diplomas.

It was such a bittersweet experience because I know that in a year that's going to be me walking across that stage and graduating from college. My mom is already planning on staying the night with me so she doesn't have to get up early and make an hour an a half drive so early in the morning. I can't wait til that day, though, even though ill probably cry. It will just mean I'm one step closer to my dream job :)

I do feel really bad though because I was invited to go out to eat with Dakota and her family at this Japanese restaurant but truth be told I just can't afford to spend lots of money. So I didn't go. And then she wanted me to go to the movies with her and my other best friend, Jackie, but I don't really have money for that either. I hate being a poor college student with no job. But I'm glad she understands. I told her we could do something this week. She is suppose to be going to Isreal at the end of June so I want to spend as much time with her as I can cause of course I'm gonna miss her.

On another note...I graduated today with a doctorate degree!!! Nah, not really...but someone with the same name as me did and it was pretty funny!

Here is my little graduate walking off the stage after getting her diploma.

Its a pretty good picture considering its from my Blackberry and the zoom is all the way up!

Congrats to all the high school and college graduates out there =)
