On This Day, 18 Years ago....

....I was walking across the stage at good ol' Grass Lake High School to accept my diploma. I cannot believe that is has been 18 years! Where does all the time go? 

I have decided to reflect a little bit today before I get on with my busy day...I will probably be doing lots of random rambling, so bear with me!

  • That year, I went to prom with my best guy friend, Ben. My dress was black velvet and fuschia taffeta.
  • I drove a 1979 black Mustang
  • For our Senior prank, we slept on top of the high school overnight, and waved to all the bus kids and teachers as they pulled in the following morning....and went to school in our jammies!
  • We took a ski trip that year....I had never been skiing before, but it was a blast!
  • Our Senior trip to Cedar Point rocked!
  • My Papaw died just 28 short days after watching me graduate :(

My musings....

Well, I have finished my Spring Semester of school. I'm pretty pleased with my grades. I got an A in English, a B in Philosophy/Ethics, a B in Sociology, and a C in Psychology....which kinda ticks me off! I missed a midterm exam due to a migriane. I asked the teacher if I could make it up, and she told me yes. When I went to make the appointment to do so, I found out that I needed to do it 24 hours in advance! I emailed the instructor about the issue and she never got back to me! Therefore, I didn't get to take the exam. So, I guess for missing out on 200 points and still getting a C, I should be happy...but I'm not! I know I was capable of atleast a B, if not an A! UGH!

There has been a shift in my thinking lately, too. There are so many little things that I let bother me for so long....I have been making a concious effort to let them all go. So far, so good. Oh, some things are still hiding in the back of my mind, but it's nothing like it used to be!

I am hoping to make it to Kentucky for my best friend Annnie's son's graduation over Memorial Day weekend. I miss them a lot and I would also love to get out of town for a hot minute! We'll see :)
