Graduating

This is how I felt to have finished all of the work for my Masters of Science degree:

… and then 5 months later I actually walk across the stage in front of my family

Watching the first video helps to remind me why we are celebrating.  This was an accomplishment.  More than anything it was proof that I, as an adult, can choose to pursue higher education, while working full time and financing it myself.  It also shows that my boyfriend Jay is a true partner, supporting me as I pursue my goals, through the stress and weekends spent writing papers.  Thank you Jay for helping me to be my best self.

Who knows what educational opportunities await in the future.  For now I am focused on gaining life experience on the road.

  5. Way to go, Sharon!!!!! I am so proud of you. That is a huge accomplishment! I LOVED your “Finished with Grad School” video. I do that same dance in my head as I near the end of my program (to the same song too), so it really made me smile 🙂
