It's done.

Convocation was tonight. I have my diploma, the ceremony is over, the party is wrapped up.

I did it.

It's been an incredible ride. I've learned so much, grown so much, my life before this seems almost unreal in a way. And, of course, as much as this is an end it is also a beginning. I'm going to have to get my own business officially set up and running, hit the streets looking for work, and apply everything that I've learned. That, and keep learning, because I know I'm not done yet.

Interestingly, I didn't receive any of the class awards, nor was I valedictorian. I don't mind this in the slightest, as the respective recipients were all very deserving. However, I was a strong contender for many of the categories, and that really fits me. I may not be the best at any one thing.. but I am highly competent in almost everything. Jack of all trades, and all that.

L was at the convocation, as were my parents and grandparents. It was great to have them all there. I've gotten so much support, love, and encouragement from my family over the past year, and I couldn't have done this without them.

I'm going to miss my class. Some people are leaving the provence, while others are uncertain as to what their future holds. I'm pretty confident in my own direction, though I suspect it will change as time progresses.

In any case, I'm at least moderately drunk and wired, so I think I'm going to wrap this up now. Watch out world, here I come.

Man Bram, remind me to tell you of the stupid-long story me and the taxi driver got into AFTER I had paid him and was ready to leave, it was this huge assortment of bullshit wrapped from around the country... Or so it felt like, he really wanted me to feel like he was some sort of guru of the ages or something with profound knowledge.

Honestly we chatted for about 20 mintues before I FINALLY got my ass out of that damn cab. Suffice to say it was both intruiging and very, VERY, annoying. I think he thought I was working for the papers or something, either that or I was the massiah... Hahaha. Spot ya a couple drinks for the 25th? :D

Congratulations! I'm really excited for you. I know your buisness is going to take off, soon, everyone will be clamoring for you to take photos for them!

Or maybe something slightly more realistic, but still good! >_>

You earned the heck out of this, and I'm super, super proud of you. Go you!

Big hugs of congratulations to you!!! I have never seen someone's entire being light up the way yours does when you get to talking about what it is that you do...your passion for it, your drive to learn all you can, the amount of pure JOY you seem to experience while taking photographs is almost as enchanting as seeing the finished results....speaking of which....I'd love to see the results of our shoot...*hint,hint* :)
