I’m graduated!

Amandagrad13 I am done with school! You will never have the pleasure of every hearing me complain about another class again! Ok, well, maybe if I ever decide to go back for a PhD or something, but I don’t see that happening any time soon.

Saturday was beautiful and perfect for graduation. It would have been even better if I couldAmandagrad5  have spent some fun time outside instead of driving around northern Illinois. I think I put about 200 miles on my car in one day! But it was for a good reason, so I don’t mind so much. My friends and I decided to meet in the morning and take pictures at the Naperville campus. We spent so much time there and none on the main campus that we thought the pictures would be more Amandagrad6 meaningful at Naperville. There were four of us who graduated on Saturday, one who graduated last summer, and poor Cody (who is not pictured) who will graduate a year from now.

The pictures would have turned out even better if it wasn’t so windy, but I think we got some good ones. If course, these are just the ones taken with my camera. Once I get copies from my friends, I’ll see if there are any better ones. Amandagrad1

After graduation, I took a few pictures with my parents, grandmother, and sister. Strangely, my sister did not send the ones of her and me…I think she said something about them not turning out to her satisfaction. Amandagrad2After the quick pics, it was off to dinner.

I ate dinner with my parents, grandmother, and sister at the Bolingbrook Golf Club’s Nest Restaurant. The food was really good, but I still needed to get to my friend’s dinner at Maggiano’s. So, I went to have dessert…you should really never pass up a cannoli. Oh, and chocolate covered strawberries….mmmmm….then wash them all down with a Peroni.
