I did it!

Well, I'm a college educated woman now!

I graduated yesterday, in a lovely commencement ceremony. It was nice, especially since the only other time I've been to a commencement it was my high school class, which had like 850 kids, about 20% of which I knew. The Schools of Music and Theatre graduated together, with about 120 grads combined. I knew every single music major and about half of the theater majors. What was even more nice was that the profs who marshalled and announced us knew every single one of us, so I wasn't shaking a stranger's hand, rather I was shaking the hand of someone who had really helped me along this journey.

It was a really rough, exciting, wonderful, fun four years. I picked the hardest degree program EVER (music performance...cutthroat, busy, twice the work of any other major, intense as heck) and I really feel accomplished having gotten through it AND being employed in the field at the end of it. Yay!!!! I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor's in Music Performance- flute. And the academic dress for Music is PINK and I was totally digging our pink tassels (to denote whether we were music or drama)

(me and my parents)

I'm actually a Bachelor of Music! So, we were a bunch of BM's and BS's (recording technology is a BS)...which we thought funny as our minds are in the potty despite our education The Theater School, which we graduated with, were BFA's or "been (foolin') around"

Ian just got his BA in Public Policy and Middle East Studies today!
