Last weekend, I graduated college. At least got to walk in the ceremony and all. I do have one last term which I am working on right now. Then I will be done. I am thinking about going for my master's but I am not sure yet.
I can't believe it's only been a week since we left for New Hampshire. It really doesn't feel that long. On Thursday, the 11th, we picked the rental car up from the airport. It was a 2016 Nissan Altima and I fell in love with it, I would have loved to keep it. I drive a 2000 Altima right now and I thought that was luxurious the new car was even more so.
We left Thursday night around 9:30 and drove all night, stopping here and there. I really wanted to eat Roy Rogers chicken at one of the travel plazas but they were not serving chicken at 2 am. I did get Roy Rogers chicken on the way back. We made it into New Hampshire around 8 am and checked in. I had a few hours before my awards ceremony so we went to Hampton Beach, NH.
Award you say? What award did you get, you ask? I was awarded for having one of the highest GPA's in my program. Currently, I have a cumulative of 4.0. I hope I get to keep that GPA until the end. I graduated sum cum laude.
Graduation was crazy. We had to pay $20 for parking. But at least we were right at the arena. And then I walked around the front and joined the rest of the people I was graduating with. There were so many of us. I never did get my hat painted because I could never figure out what to get. Just like I had some pictures snapped (which turned out horrible) and got my fake diploma.I will get a real one in August, once I am completely done with school. It feels kind of weird. I think it was the president of SNHU that something graduation is both a beginning and an end. Sure, I am 36 but I feel the future to be exciting and scary at the same time.
On Sunday, we stopped in Sturbridge Village in Massachusetts. It was a crazy trip. There was so much we wanted to do and didn't get a chance to. Like go to Maine, Cape Cod, Boston and spend more time in Salem. I guess we will have to plan another vacation to New England.
Till next time...
