Photo Diary: I Graduated!

grad

I’ve waited 16 years of my life for this moment.

On Sunday, December 21st, 2014, I walked proudly across the stage for my Bachelor’s degree in journalism. At 20 years old, I’m a happy little lady!

I was lucky enough to find two of my fellow journalism colleagues, DJ and Tatiana, before the commencement ceremony began, so we got to sit together for the 2 1/2 hour long shebang.

L-R: Tatiana, me, and DJ at the commencement ceremony.

After the ceremony, I took some fun pics with my friends and family.

I should have made a funny face too, but DJ didn’t warn me!

Mascot Kate Hofstra and I!

 

I can’t say I’m not going to miss Hofstra. I’ll miss everything about that campus, from the people I met, to the froyo at the campus’ Red Mango, all the way down to the Hofstra kitties.

So long, Hofstra, and to my fellow colleagues graduating in the spring of 2015, I wish you all the best!

Since I loved the idea of this so much, I decided to write some for today’s post.

Behold—I present to you, “Celebrity Dating Profiles: The Whisper Box Edition.”
