I am done with school. I don't have my grades yet, or that little piece of paper that is so important, but I am done. I have a Bachelor Degree in Accounting. I am not going through the ceremony, I guess for a lot of reasons. First, I tend to be shy and humble when it comes to these things. Maybe it's because I feel like I should have gotten this done at 21 instead of 31. Another reason is because the ceremony is over an hour away since I go to a branch location of the school. Not to mention my immediate family doesn't live here and I don't expect them to make a special trip. Lastly, I would rather spend $100 on beads instead of a cheap satin gown I will only wear once. It's just my feelings, and I am fine with them. No regrets.
I know there will be other fun ways to celebrate with my husband, family, friends and co-workers. I do look forward to sharing meals with enjoyable company over the next few weeks. I always love an excuse to go out to eat!
My husband asked me if I was going to frame my diploma and hang it on the wall next to his. I told him I'd rather frame my first published project in Stringing magazine (due out June 16th). What I mean by that is, I'd love to be doing something artsy for a living. Maybe someday, but for now I am glad it can be a hobby and creative outlet for me. So in honor of that, and this occasion, I'd like you to celebrate with me by offering 30% OFF and FREE SHIPPING in my Peacock Fairy shop and FREE SHIPPING in my Loose Feathers shop! Just enter the word GRADUATE when you checkout, make sure I have a way to contact you, and I will send you a revised invoice! This sale will last until May 3rd!
