I graduated

I graduated a couple of weeks ago from BYU.

I got my bachelor's degree in Social Science Teaching, basically it means I can teach any of the social sciences to jr. high and high school students. I even finished in four years, which I was proud of. I got to walk with the College of Nursing, where I have worked on campus for the past four years. And my favorite boss Mark even got to hand me my diploma. Now let me tell you, that is a happy picture. I'll have to post it up here once I buy it for 10 bucks.

Kinda crazy to think that my days as a student are over, it was a fun four years.

-I started June 2006 and ended in April 2010
-In the first two years of college I moved every four months
-I had a total of 28 roommates
-I never went home for the summer, but always had a blast in Provo in the summer
-I hiked the Narrows in Zion National Park
-I went on numerous bike rides to Utah Lake
-I floated down the Provo River in kiddie pool more than once
-I went swimming almost nightly one summer
-I had totally awesome dance parties
-I always had really fun summer holidays thanks to my awesome sister Haley
-I hiked the Y twice in one day
-I worked at the College of Nursing the whole time I was a student at BYU
-I made a lot of amazing friends that I will never forget
-I met the man of my dreams and got married

I guess you can say it won't be easy to forget my time at BYU.


  1. This was a fun list to read. We've missed being at BYU; it was a very fun time. Congrats on graduating!

    I'd be interested to hear your story about hiking the Y twice in one day. Jer hiked it three times the day he proposed (once to scout it out, once to carry a picnic dinner up, and once with me and the ring).

    Anyway, glad to hear you guys are doing well.

  2. You lived my dream. Mark giving you your diploma! So appropriate. I hope you hugged. There'd be no way he could escape it up there in front of everyone.

    Congratulations! Your hair looks really cute in the pictures.
