Celebrate The Small Things - May 31 (Graduation Edition)

 Every Friday, a list of really cool people powered by VikLit over at Scribblings of an Aspiring Author write a blog post about Celebrating The Small Things. This week, my post is a day late, but I have a legitimately good excuse. I GRADUATED yesterday - with a Bachelor of Arts Honours, to be exact.

I suppose you can guess what I am celebrating this week:
7 years
40 classes
132 credits
30(ish) research papers
a 37-page undergraduate thesis
all adding up to - Brandy Robertson, B.A. (Hons)

I am celebrating... the Silver Medal in English in my right hand
and the Bachelor of Arts Honours Degree in my left!

I am celebrating... moving my tassel from the right to the left.

I am celebrating... these two women; I wouldn't be here,
be capable of any of this, without them!

I am celebrating... my bestie who I can count on
any time, any where, for any thing!

I am celebrating... this guy, Farmer Joe, my fiance
because he's just enough to want to marry crazy me!

I am celebrating... these two cute brutes because
they'd love me whether I was smart or dumb as a post!

As you can see, I have not-so-small things to celebrate again this week. One small thing I'll mention, though, is the Mindfulness Workshop that I was able to attend that helped me to embrace every moment of my wonderful Friday!
