Then I studied on Friday because there's nothing like graduating while studying for the bar.
On Friday evening, our campus hosted a small reception. It was awesome. The professors spoke to us and gave us bits of advice, then the students had an opportunity to speak.
I spoke and many others did as well. It was a great night and something I'll remember always.
But Saturday was soon upon us and it was time to GRADUATE!
|This is my friend Kaylon. I've known her since my 1L year. She cracked me up on a regular basis and encouraged me a ton during my weight loss journey. She's a native Michigander and one smart cookie!|
|Just in case anyone forgot that we were in the Frozen Tundra on graduation day! HA!|
|Me with my siblings!|
|One with the whole family. That's my ACTUAL diploma in the shot by the way. |
Blue ribbon for doctorate and purple for law!
|Of course, had to have a picture with my main man. I could not have made it to this day without him. Our time in Michigan is something that I'll treasure and remember always as well.|
I'm looking forward to making Arkansas our home and finding good communities in church and running and friendships. I feel a bit off right now because of it all. My eating and working out hasn't been great at all. I wish that I'd had some more time to get used to the area before jumping right into studying to find my footing. I also wished we hadn't moved here in the middle of yucky winter, but that's another complaint for another day. There are a lot of things that I love so far about being closer to home and there are some things that I miss about Michigan. In the meantime, I ask that y'all pray for us during this transition time.
Hope this finds you well.
