Sotsugyou Shite! (Graduating!)  
That's right-- today's the day. X_x;; I turned in my last paper and took my last exam on Wednesday, I had my last day of work at the library on Thursday, but today.... today makes everything Official. The ceremony starts at 2:30, but grads have to be there an hour early. University graduations are notoriously boring and long, so I feel bad for my guests. Especially my mother and grandparents, who are coming all the way down here just to watch me walk.

Sam, always prepared, has bought Saw II to watch on his iPod. He promises to pause it to watch me graduate, even if it's at a really climactic scene. ^_~

I found out earlier this week that I'm graduating the history department with honors, so I get to wear an honors cord. I feel so snobby saying that-- but my mother and grandmother are both really excited about it. And it is kind of cool to have a GPA high enough.

So... yeah. Soon I'll have my BA in History and Asian Studies.

*hugs everyone*

It's not snobby, not at all. Congratulations on graduating with honors.

And congratulations in general, too. You're awesome.

*blush* Thank you so much. *hugs tightly* You've been such a wonderful friend to me-- you know that, right?

*hugs* You've always been an amazing friend to me, too, Meredith. Sometimes it's made a world of difference, seriously.

Oh, Meredith, I am so proud of you. I don't know, maybe that sounds weird, but I really am. What an accomplishment--especially your history honors!

What's next? Do you know?

It doesn't sound weird at all! I'm touched and happy to hear it-- it means a lot. And I'm always happy to have good wishes from a fellow history buff! ^_~

I really don't know. I've got some job opportunities in the works, some Japanese-related, some special needs-related, some neither. We'll see how things work out with interviewing and testing this week. *grins* Wish me luck!

Sorry, I've been out of town. I just wanted to say: Congratulations!!! I hope you get some use out of your degree.
