Hi, everyone! Coming at you today with a quick, but exciting post. Most of my regular readers will know that I've been in graduate school for the past
million several years and that I completed my PhD Dissertation work back in May. That was beyond a huge milestone for me and yesterday marked another- my graduation! I got to don my velvet robes and cap, cross the stage, and make this thing official: I have my doctorate! Just call me Blogger, Ph.D. :)
The ceremony yesterday was long, but lovely. Between the nerves and the heaviness of the gown, I was hot!! It felt like such a relief to finally line up near the stage to get my diploma. Once on there, I was hooded by my longtime supervisor, who has been by my side for the past 8 years. It was quite an emotional moment!
Afterwards, we headed outside for some fresh air, where I met up with my (ultra proud) parents. I posed for some photos and shared the love with my family, classmates, and professors.
By the time the ceremony and photos were over, my tummy was grumbly so we head down to Joey Eaton Centre, a nearby restaurant, for some celebratory grub. My boyfriend Adam met us there for the meal, which completed the special day perfectly!
To conclude, I want to send a heartfelt thank you to all of my friends in the blogosphere who have sent along their congrats and messages of support as I finished up my Ph.D. Your kind words and encouragement truly mean so much!!
Have a wonderful weekend :)
