Tomorrow is the day
Cap and gown
My name being called on the stage
A degree in my hand
Leaving Ramapo College for good this time
It is surreal to me
I am actually graduating from College....
It took long enough :)
But it is a huge accomplishment for me
It seems so strange to think that I am not going back to class
That the chapter of my book at Ramapo College is finally finished.
I never thought I would finish that chapter
I am excited and sad
My parents, bobby, erika, Aunt nancy, thomas, alex, and Christian
will all be there
It means so much to me that they will be there,
especially since I reallly don't even want to go
And know what else is great...
I was the only one in my photography class to get an "A". I don't mean to brag but I am so proud of this accomplishment. At first I just thought the professor was giving every one good grades because I was getting good grades on all my assignments. But it turns out he was not. He even told me that he does not normally give out "A's" but the work I was doing in the class really deserved an A. This makes me so happy, because this was not a class where you had to study and that is what got me the grade. I had to go out find things to take pictures of, be creative with what I was photographing, and use my camera correctly to photograph it. I love taking photos...I never really thought I was any good at it, but my professor really belives I have some type of talent. It is nice to know that someone out there belives you are talented. Someone you don't really even know. He believes I will accomplish great things in my life. Who doesn't love to hear that.
My very last semester at Ramapo College was fabulous....no finals....a trip to Mexico...and an amazing photography class. A girl could not ask for more.

Michelle has come up with a brilliant way of celebrating her birthday. (I apologize, but I need to figure out how to link again, once I do I will put up the link) She is going to do one thing each day in May to pamper her soul and feed her spirit. What an amazing way to celebrate her birthday. I think it is incredibly inspiring and I am going to try to do it as well. This is something I really need to think about though, and like she said...mark it on my calender.
Taking time to nourish my body, inspire my creative soul, and feed my inner spirit. Time for myself, to fully indulge and appreciate who I am. A time to celebrate me. I belive I will kick it off tomorrow with some dancing. What better way to begin than with Bob Sinclair's "Love Generation." Dancing is extremly healing, and really lifts up my spirits. I'll be honest, I really enjoy dancing in front of the mirror. :)
I think this month a bike ride is in order. As well as an early morning walk, taking beautiful photos of myself, singing along to my favorite songs, exploring the book store--which I have not done in so long, walking tall and being proud of who I am, cooking myself a nice meal and eating it by candle light, diving into a fabulous book that I want to read....hmm I wonder what else. I will definitly keep you posted as to what I indulge in during this month of me.

My time at Ramapo College is quickly coming to a close. I cannot belive I am actually graduating. I have been in school for so long (I don't even want to tell you the exact number of years, it has been that long). It feels like forever. What am I going to do with myself now that I am no longer going to school? Wild!!! I know.
I know I must perfect my resume, apply to jobs, and apply to graduate school....yes more school, I know. But I must get my masters in Education so I can what I really want to do, teach! So school is not completly over for me, but in a large part it is. A bachelors degree does not mean much now a days, but at least I will have that. It is something, and something I am proud of. For me it is a huge accomplishment.
So on May 11, 2007 at 10 am, think of me. For I will then be a college graduate! Hooray!!
