Nothing sums up my graduation experience better than this picture:
Graduate students are nothing if not resourceful. We have lived in survival mode for years. We know how to stir a pot on the stove while reading textbooks, we write papers in carpool lines, and for goodness sake, we don't let a little (or a lot) of life-threatening weather derail us.
So, yah, all that to say I'm done. Finished. Through. My only regret is not swiping one of those gold key necklace things.
Thankfully the weather and my graduation did not get in the way of Mia's theater performance.
I would rather watch this girl perform than just about anything in the world.
