The notification came yesterday and I was stunned by my reaction. After all, I'd told myself this would be no big thing and that I wouldn't be making a fuss or anything. Honestly, I was asked about this the other day and had no idea specifically when it was going to happen and had no plans to do anything about it anyway.
For those who know me I have been in college off and on for years and never got anywhere with it. Graduation, when it would finally come, could be brushed off as I wasn't about to sit through some big ol' boring production...not of my own free will that is.
Funny that since the notification came that I was eligible to walk I've had this strange little feeling creep up on me....astonishment for starters (in fact it feels unreal) but now I am working up an honest-to-goodness excitement.
I've no real plans here....just go to the ceremony and come home (no fanfare or anything planned....after all it is a weeknight) but its really got me excited for my Bachelor's graduation fall of next year.
I expect to throw myself quite the party on THAT night!
Having never been in the Provo Tabernacle I have no idea how big it is or how many people will be allowed to come. Cynthia is coming (in fact she's the one who got me to finally agree to do this) and Teach you're invited if you can make it. I'll post again once I know how many people are allowed to show....that is, if anyone else is interested in coming.
Anyone else find this a good excuse to buy a new dress?
