all adds up to one amazing day!

joj & c3

Well, the day has finally come…

across the stage!

68 credit hours

900+ internship hours

1200 honorary trips to St. Big Bucks

40 papers

15 presentations

5 exams

1 clinical board exam

multiple sleepless nights (too many to count)

1 stalwart support of friendship

252 tears

4 amazing professors

2 kittens

1 fantabulous slice

Tonight, we celebrate the culmination of progress…I say “we”, for graduation is never merely a celebration of one solitary person or one isolated event – it is the commemoration of all persons and events that helped create a successful ending to the adventuresome journey.

Accomplishment is not a one-man feat.

That was my goal all along, so thank you for the ride. You are amazing Cathi and this is a great accomplishment. For reals!!

  2. oh kristi…i even got a “for reals” in that comment…awesomeness!!!! And about the whole “really, really smart person” thing…remember what I said – anyone can get their masters, you just have to like reading, that’s all.
    Love you so muchly!

    oh ‘lece….you’re so here – I intentionally stole a little bit of you to keep with me in my pocket…hope you don’t mind. and every once in a while, I can hear humming…

  3. WOOT WOOT!!!!

    So proud of you… can’t even begin to imagine the effort that went into the accomplishment. But I hope you get the chance to stop and breathe and really feel the moments… because you should feel so dang proud!
