Graduation Day

Well, the ceremonies are over.  I have an MA.  Erin is a doctor.  And New York City beckons.  

I can be a cynic, and I was the last person that thought I would care about wearing some ill-fitting medieval gown.  I was overheard saying on more than one occasion that I was only walking for my mother.  This proved to be wrong during the ceremony.  I was quite excited, and had some pretty active butterflies in my stomach as I walked out on stage.  When I shook hands with the Dean and got my honors sash I was holding back tears.  When you work hard, it is nice to get rewarded, and often very emotional.
