graduation

picking up my cap and gown today! i'm excited even though i'm wearing an "apricot" colored tassel (who comes up with these?) i want to thank everyone that has helped me on the way to earning my degree. i appreciate all your love, support and advice.

i'm attending an honors banquet tonight where each participant is supposed to take a few minutes to talk about what their education means to them. i'm nervous but glad to have this opportunity. weber state is the greatest school i could have ever attended. sure it gets a bad rap for being a commuter school and fairly small compared to other utah universities. but i'm proud to be an alumna of the wildcats! the nursing program has made the transition from school to work very seamless. i feel prepared to meet the demands of my career because of the hands-on education i received. where graduates are having hard times securing positions after school, i feel very lucky to have been trained by such an awesome faculty and to have a job. so i guess that's what my education means to me.

it will be much more polished tonight i hope. haha. have a wonderful wednesday!
