Graduation

People, it's over. I graduated last Friday - and I am thrilled to be done! Chris is equally thrilled because 1. I will be working more and 2. no more tuition to pay for. I say this now and hope I never have to eat my words in the future, but I will never go back to school full-time again. My parents and Chris' parents came down to celebrate with us and we went out to dinner at the Tobacco Company afterwards.

The end of my program was pretty smooth - I finished my clinicals back in October and have just been waiting for it all to wrap up since then. I accepted a job at the hospital in Williamsburg back in November and will be starting there in January! I also gave my notice at work a couple weeks ago so next week will be my last week of work there. NO MORE COMMUTING!! YAY!

Also, a huge thank you to everyone for all the congratulations and well-wishes, and especially to all the nurses in my life who have been so welcoming and kind - my aunts and my sister-in-law. You guys are wonderful!
