I woke up this morning very excited. Two things were going to happen throughout my day. First is my exit interview with my school, once completed they will be sending me my diploma. The second is, my best friend is coming to visit and is going to crash with me for a few days. I know it doesn’t sound too exciting by how it is written right there, but I will definitely change that if you read on.
First, let me just say, I never thought that I would graduate college. I have had such a bad track record with school, that is only because I hated it growing up. The only things that I truly liked, are the minimal friends that I did come across. To be honest, I attended grade school, high school, which I graduated from. Then I went away to school to a university (the first time), came home, flunked out, then enrolled myself into community college (on and off), for a few years of torture that led to no where. That in itself is a long track record, can’t you see why I thought I was never going to graduate? A few years ago I saw this online university with a fine arts writing degree, I went for it and enrolled myself and within a couple of weeks I started school, again. Today was the day though that I would have my exit interview. They asked me a few questions about loan repayment and I had to electronically sign a couple forms then send them back. After all said and done the phone call ended with six words I never thought I would hear, “Congratulations, on becoming a college graduate.” I got off the phone and literally was running around my apartment for ten seconds chasing my cats and waking my girlfriend as I repeated “I’m a graduate!” Of course this all happened at 9:00 AM, my cats and her weren’t having it at that moment. I didn’t care, this is such a big deal and I am going to celebrate the only way I know how, to hang out with my best friend ever.
My best friend is coming to town today, I am going to be picking her up from the airport with her sister, A.K.A my other best friend. I am so stoked. She lives in Cali and has lived there for the past three years (almost). It still is surreal to me that she isn’t ten minutes away from me any more, but I have moved forward with my life since she left, still doesn’t mean I don’t miss her every day. I feel like she brings out the best of my comedy, I can just be my self around her with no problem. I am so excited for arrival this is going to be a quick couple of days but a great couple of days. I will be sure to write a follow up blog about the time she has spent here.
Thanks for reading, I’ll be posting again soon!
