Here you can actually tell it's me in the photo, walking down the aisle having received my "diploma" - actually a sheet of paper (inside a beautiful folder) that says "if you really managed to complete all your classes, we'll mail your diploma to you."
All the music majors with our professors.
So, given that momentous occasion, what have I done with my life since? Well, let's see...
I've lived on three continents,
Worked three official jobs and several unofficial ones,
Celebrated 5 years of marriage,
Given birth to two wonderful kids,
Traveled to 10 different countries on four continents
and still only know one language! (well, I'm working on changing that one.)
And I probably thought about Graduation day once or twice.
In the next five years I hope to...
Finally finish paying off my student loans (!!!)
Travel around this new continent I find myself on,
Achieve a reasonable level of Portuguese,
Watch my kids grow up and start school.
Lots to look back on and lots to look forward to!
