t minus one year...and counting.

i'm not being cocky and saying it is--i don't want to jinx myself or anything--but this might be... just may be....if all goes according to plan...the very last may that i feel sadness when i pass the hallmark stores and see the black square hat cards, feel like the tulips popping out of the ground are chidingly saying, "ooh...graduation! wouldn't it be nice to have a bachelor's degree?" not that anything would really be different. but wouldn't it be nice to finish that never-ending story? yes, flowers speak to me every may. it's true.
in catering it's really tough. graduation parties every year. and every year the graduates keep getting younger, until yes, i'm referring to them as 'kids'.
maybe next year will be my may.

i know, i know. you thought i was done with this post. i did too. but i just had to confess that the past three mays, the ones that i've been enrolled in school, haven't been as bad, since i've been working toward the goal and all. but still. i'm just saying. i may have to purchase the largest frame ever procured for a bachelors degree. larger than a phd frame.

You'll get there! I'm so proud of you for setting your eye on this and doing it, no matter how difficult it has been! Love, Amy :)

I thought it would never happen, to graduate from American college was like a dream for me... Dreams come true...
Kitty, you are a very talented student! The school should be so proud to have you there!

thank you both for your sweet encouragement. sometimes i feel silly for all the whining i require to get me through school. and then there's emilia, who quietly and steadily snags that degree in a foreign country without so much as a peep of complaint. well, not much anyway. huge congrats to emilia and her husband pavel--the unstoppable polish duo, whose graduation i will be honored to attend next month.
