Lows & Highs: 12/12-12/18/12

Low: For the second week in a row, I cannot think of a low.

High: I graduated on Saturday with my M.A. in Teaching English as a Second Language! I met up with family for barbecue at my favorite local joint in Emporia, KS, and lunch was as tasty as I remembered from my undergrad days. After lunch, we headed to the campus for the commencement ceremony. We were early, so I took the opportunity to show them around a bit, pointing out different buildings I used to frequent. In a stroke of genius, someone at the university had decided to hold separate ceremonies for the graduate and undergraduate students. You may wonder how long a December ceremony with only graduate students at a small-ish university would take. You are in luck; my dad timed it at 49 minutes. That was the shortest graduation ceremony I have ever attended, and I greatly enjoyed it!
