That night, my sister and her boyfriend arrived into town for my convocation the next day. I would be receiving my B.Ed, after five years of hard work. The ceremony was pretty boring but it was nice to see all my classmates I hadn't seen for a month or so, and it was very exciting to see all my friends walk across the stage. A lot of my family and friends came to see me, which was awesome.
After, we went to my boyfriend's family's house for a big BBQ with all our family, and then later a bunch of our friends came over for a party. It was a great night filled with lots of love and laughter.
My sister and her boyfriend got me this stuffed toy because we had an inside joke about a platypus and this looks like a platypus, but the funny thing is that when I worked at the bookstore, we sold these and I always thought they were so cute and a few months ago Stephen finally bought me one (the blue one) so now I have two!
My parents had this necklace made for me. The words "Dream" and "2012" are painted on a grain of rice.
My brother and sister-in-law got me this globe. The story I told in this post relates to this. When I graduated they got me my light-up globe, and now for my convocation they got me this. It is solar-powered and spins slowly on its pedestal.
The best part of the story happened yesterday. On Monday I got a call to set up a job interview. Yesterday I met with the principal of the school in the morning, and had my interview at 4:00. Then last night while my family was out celebrating my dad's birthday I got the phone call and I got the job! It is in my town so I will be able to walk to work. I will be teaching in my subject areas and it is just perfect and I am so happy and excited. And nervous. But mostly happy and overwhelmed. And that was the end to a great weekend!
