It’s been a little over two years, but the day has finally come. Earlier tonight I submitted my last group assignment in my final class. The grade will be calculated by later in the week, but it’s clear enough: I have earned my Bachelor’s of Science in Communications. Once I get over the hurdle of having to pay off an unexpected out-of-pocket expense thanks to my financial aid limit being lowered (thank you sequestration wut?), then I will have the physical copy of my diploma ready to frame and display proudly wherever I can find an appropriate wall space.
