Today I spent 4 hours with my fellow graduates for 3 seconds of glory. During that time I did feel pretty special though...that is until I heard about the much greater accomplishments some of my fellow students acheived .
All kidding aside, attending my graduation ceremony was definately worth it. I enjoyed all eyes on me ( and like a thousand other people), I enjoyed getting my name called (although it was slightly butchered as usual...Muller, not Madelyn) and I enjoyed being congratulated by the President and faculty of SDSU.
I wasn't going to walk originally, but something made me change my mind. It wasn't everyone telling me I would regret not doing it, or my sister's yelling at me about how I needed to do it or else! I think what really did it, was the fact that it would be a cheap mother's day gift. JUST KIDDING!
However, I had already bought the cap and gown so I could get my pictures taken, so I guess I just figured why not?
The only thing I didn't like about it was... the crowd, the fact that I had to pee really bad for most of it, my back hurting, the headache I got, and my empty stomach...otherwise, it was a good time!
