Throwback.. When I graduated high school


It honestly feels like this day was forever ago! For those that don't know I graduated from high school just last year. I was class of 2015! Woo! Go Cougars! It was such a beautiful moment and a perfect day to say the least.

I wasn't the smartest kid in the bunch in high school, I never have been but that being said I will do what I have to in order to get where I want to be in life. I worked my (insert cuss word here) butt off to make sure that I walked across that stage on June 6th. This was a moment that I had waited for my entire four years of high school. I mean doesn't every student want there day to come, when all there hard work pays off and you feel that sigh of relief. That is exactly what I felt on graduation day when I grabbed that diploma and smiled to everyone in the audience.

The morning of... well let me take you to the night before, I could hardly sleep! My mind was racing and still trying to come to the realization that I was about to be starting college and as my mom would say, entering the real world. I honestly just couldn't wait to wake up in the morning and put on my cap and gown. I had them hanging on my closet door all pressed and ironed. 

My mother greeted me the morning of graduation with "How's my graduate doing!!" She was so excited for me and couldn't stop saying how proud of me she was. I made sure I had everything prepped and ready to go so by the time I had to leave I would be good to go.

I had to throw something on because we had to be at UTA (University of Texas Arlington) at noon to have a graduation run through. I rode with some friends to the rehearsal and as we arrived you could see everyone smiling and all excited about the day. There was already tears making its way into my eyes as I came to realization that some people I would never see again. I had a lot of friends that would be heading off to universities out of town and some even out of state. This would be the last time that we see each other. 

Fast forward... we are inside of UTA, lined up, ready to walk out into out seats. As we walk into the auditorium I am just amazed at the ambiance of it all. Screaming family & friends as they watch from the audience, teachers and faculty smiling at us. It was a moment that I definitely have sunken into my memory and will never forget. Fast forward to the end of our ceremony and I go grab my diploma and I'm just covered in tears because it's a moment that I had worked my ass of all four years to get to.

If you are determined and dedicated, you can accomplish anything. I really want to inspire someone because it wasn't an easy road but I eventually got to my destination.

Thanks for coming on this journey with me and I'm glad I was able to share this with my readers today. Until next time...
