Today was my college graduation! After two years I have graduated from college with my associate degree in graphic design. The last three months have pretty much just been all about building my portfolio and graduation. It has been stressful but now its all over and its so nice!

Yesterday we had a portfolio showing at my college where everyone hangs up their best six pieces of work and they invite design professionals to come and look at everyone's work. During the day we got a lot of professionals that came in to see the work and I gave out a lot of business cards. Later they had a time for friends and family to come, so my whole family showed up and hung out for while. The only bad part was we had to stand by our work all day. It was eight hours, not moving from one spot. I had three inch heels on, not very fun there! :XD:

Then today as you know was graduation! It was a pretty quick ceremony which I was thankful for, my high school graduation was like three hours or so because we had so many kids graduating, and there was like fifteen billion speeches. After that my family took me out to Longhorn to eat, I got a filet and loaded baked potato. Sooo good! :D

So now I'm just unwinding down from all this. I have been waiting to graduate from that place for awhile but now it just feels so weird knowing that I will never have to go back there again and work on projects or anything. I've spent two years of my life there and now it's time to move on and I think I'm ready. :)

I also want to upload some of my final projects and some pictures, so stay tuned because I'll be doing that very shortly. And summer is here now guys!! Anyone else graduating?

I know!! :dance: :boogie: I thought the graduation ceremony wasn't long which I was glad about, though that Scott Hull guy they gave the commencement speech was stupid. He kept stopping and stuttering over stuff and didn't know what the hell he was saying half the time it seemed. And it was so long I drifted in and out of it.

I was so glad it wasnt long also! Made my day XD
Yeah, i agree, that guy was a terrible speaker! Why the hell have someone like that speak at our graduation, i think i could have read from a paper better than he did
