Happy Friday! I’m literally writing from inside the school cafeteria where graduation is about to start… in an hour. It is hot up in this bitch! 😛
And I’m yawning. That’s right, I’m sleepy. I’ve been up since 4:30 AM. I had to get my ass to gym this morning since there is no time restriction.
I just wanted to take a moment to reflect on my last four (4) years in the Paralegal Program. I can’t believe I’m going to be able to call myself a certified Paralegal.
I’m so excited to finally be done with school. Walking across the stage is whatever… but being done with school gives my mind, body and soul so much enjoyment.
It’s been tough. I’m an absolute learner. I took multiple breaks, wasn’t able to get into classes numerous times and stressed so hard over not passing.
But honestly, it’s just another milestone. The real celebration won’t happen until next week when I’m actually done with my final… a final that will absolutely make or break me in getting my degree. Can’t wait to give you guys an update on that.
I have all sort of feels but I think the most surprising one is being calm. I’m not excited but I’m not down. I’m just calm. Despite walking, I still feel the stress of my last final rather than a relief in graduating.
I’m so grateful for all of the professor who have taught me all aspects of the law field; the processes and procedures + the different areas of law. Without these beautiful educators, I wouldn’t have gotten to be where I am today.
I’m thankful for my father. Although, he didn’t make it to my graduation, I hold no grudge because I know he has to hussle. We’re family… but we have a clear understanding of the hard work we have to do in order to live.
I’m blessed for my loving boyfriend Tony. My heart and soul. He’s been the most supportive man since I went back to school. I recall when I told Tony I was going back to school, he said that he would be there to support me; that school came first and on the days we spent together (before living together), he would be there by my side as I did my homework while he watched YouTube videos 😛 I love you so much. Thank you for everything baby!
And last but not least, my best friend, Florence. I feel like I’ve said this before but there’s no one else in this world who knows me more than Florence. She understands me inside and out. We’ve lived somewhat of a similar life. We know independence best and I’m glad she was there to hold my hand every step of the way… of most of my teen/adult life.

Okay… We’re lined up and we’re getting ready to walk into the school gym. Which by the way, I didn’t even know we had one 😛
Anyways… I guess this is it, I’m walking and I can’t turn back. Thank you for taking the time to read this rambling post about my very thoughts just moments away from graduation.
It’s time to walk!
Until the next post,
With love and support,
