A year ago...
A year ago today we were the ones in the funny caps and loose gowns. The ones with big grins and sweet-smelling lei.* We were the ones with tired feet and aching smile muscles. We were the ones with pomp and some circumstance. We were the ones surrounded by family and friends. We were the ones with fancy degrees and no job prospects!
And now, a year later, we've still got those smiles and those fancy degrees - and jobs now, too - and are still surrounded by family and friends. We've survived what people warned would be "the worst year of your life" and I think we've thrived instead of survived. So here's to the first year out!
*Alll the way from Hawaii. Thanks Mom & Dad!
