Graduation: Full Speed Ahead!

I cannot believe it. I am in shock. When did this happen!? Graduation is less than two months away. On Saturday, December 8th at 9:00 AM I will be filing into my seat to receive my diploma from K-State. Needless to say, the realization that this big event is sneaking up on me is an understatement. Although I am excited to begin the next stage in my life, I feel like I have so much to complete the next two months. Luckily, K-State hosted a Graduation Fair in the K-State Student Union Bookstore yesterday and today. This afternoon I was able to sit down with someone and go through all of my options for ordering invitations, thank you notes, my cap and gown, etc. I was so thankful to have a real person taking the time to sit down with me and decrease the stress associated with such a big event. Before I knew it, I could check those tedious tasks off my list! It was such a relief to know that from start to finish K-State had someone there to help me out. I can honestly say there has not been a time during my K-State career where a helping hand was not offered. All I need to do now is send out my invitations (once they arrive) and try to find a warm but cute outfit to wear under my gown. December 8th, I’m ready for you!
